I was refering to the diplomatic interaction with the other civilisations.
It is only fluff and I agree with the still pictures used in MP games to speed things along, but I always enjoyed them in a relaxed singe player setting. Also they got quite good in C5 and C6.
Aside the "controversy" at C6's reveal the...Cleopatra-gate* may I call it that? I really liked what the animators, art team and voice over team did with the Leaders.
Also I enjoyed watching them throw a fit after denying their requests, declaring war on them and stuff. It is really good....
It may be "just" a strategy game but the animators did a bang good job on mocap/animation and expressing emotions here, ressources well spend and a sad fact that this is lost to (the considerable few) mobile first-adopters.
Seeing Cleopatra or Pedro throw a tantrum is always funny and makes my day...especially when they use their original language (or approxximation thereof)....**
The guy did a video series about all major things the Leaders say (Meeting you the first time, declearing war, being defeated, denouncing you, etc...)
But of course it makes sense to not have them in the mobile version.....as much as it saddens me the downlöad size of Civ 6 on PC is about 8-9 GB...cutting away at the animated fluff and voiceovers make sense on the technical limitation size
*People blew up about the art direction of C6 as a whole...and got a bit distracted by Cleopatras's.....eyes.....it got a bit silly...
