Sid Meier on Social Gaming

Better Know Sid Meier on IndustryGamers talks with renowned designer Sid Meier about his career and the game industry. On the topic of Civilization World on Facebook, he offers his take on social gaming: "Facebook has become an exciting new place to play games and we felt that we could create a fun and engaging Civilization experience for the platform, so we made a prototype and went from there. There are hundreds of millions of people on Facebook and it looks like they’re going to stay around for a while. The good news for all of us is that there are many different ways to play games today and all of them can happily exist together, so I don’t see a reason to predict the end of social games any time soon."
