Gamespot has compiled an extensive overview of Sid Meier and his creations. From the hallowed beginnings of his first game which was Solo Flight to Railroad Tycoon and the classic Civilization games, the article revistis each title the legendary gamer developed. Besides that, Sid Meier gives his take on the current state of the gaming industry.

The Sid Meier philosophy has always been to keep the pace of the game moving, and to keep it fun.

On a related note, Civilization IV is in the pipeline and hopefully it will conquer the Macintosh platform in the near future. Please follow the link below to read the entire article and to learn more information.
