MacGamer Interviews Sid Meier
11:15 AM | Tuncer Deniz | Comment on this story has posted an interview with Firaxis Games' Sid Meier, one of the industry's most hailed and widely respected game designers. The interview with Meier covers several topics, from his thoughts on the general state of Mac gaming to his company's tried-and-true philosophy of game design.

Here's a clip from the interview:

Q: What are you thoughts toward Mac gaming and, in particular, OS X?

A: Well, there's obviously a strong Mac gaming community out there which is why our publishers have ported several of our games to the Mac (for example, Civ III and Alpha Centauri). I want our games to be accessible to as many people as possible, so we encourage and support our publishers in making our games Mac friendly.
