Sid Meier's keynote session at GDC saw the great man claim we're currently in a "golden age" of gaming. He admitted he hadn't played games like Portal, but was spending a lot of time playing races like Forza and Gotham.
More from here:
- He would still recommend that aspiring designers learn to program as it "gives you a lot of power and creativity".
- He thinks we're in the midst of a "golden age" of gaming, and has been playing a lot of racers like Forza and Gotham.
- He doesn't fancy doing casual games, or rather simple games as he put it. "I'm not that interested in doing simple games. I like complicated games!" he said, to much amusement.
- He also authenticated the legend that he once locked himself in a room with the Gettysburg engine and emerged with SimGolf.
- Finally, he's very much enjoying working on Civilization Revolution as it's a way for him to work out some of the older kinks. He says it "puts you back at that 'king' spot".
