It's been a LOOONG time since I've been excited about a Will Wright game. SPORE was awful. Just awful (though it might have been okay were it marketed towards 6-year-olds). Like Peter Molyneux, Wright is a washed-up has-been who remains relevant solely for his legacy of long-past greatness in gaming history.
