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."
