[Geeky] The PC Game I Want Most

If you haven't read about Spore, go do so. It's the latest game concept by revolutionary designer Will Wright. (For those who aren't aware, my two favorite game designers are Will Wright and Peter Molyneux, both of whom focus on making more 'open ended' games.)

Will Wright is the man who, years ago, created a little game called 'Sim City' -- from there, he expanded on with a great many other Sim games, until he finally created (more recently) 'The Sims' and 'The Sims 2.' His games have always focused on allowing the player to be creative and build their own stories. And Spore... Spore takes it to a level I've never before seen.

This game, I want. Oh, my, do I want.

Ditto that.
If this game lets me evolve creatures after editing, simulates reproduction and natural selection, I'd sure as hell buy it.

That would be so awesome. Like Dawkins meets Soul Calibur.
Shiny.

But can you build an entire culture made up of Jamie Bambers? If not, I'm not so interested!

(Unless I can make Sean Beans. Or Viggos. Lots of 'em.)

(YAY FOR SEMI-DRUNKEN POSTING!)
Speaking of the Sim-series games, I wonder if they'll ever do a remake of Sim Earth? I haven't seen it in ages, to be honest, but I know a lot of science classes in high schools even still use it. Heck, an update to use more than 16 colors would be a decent improvement.
Mmmm, sim games. Mm, anything like this is good.

Because really, the only games I play are either strategy or sim.
It's every game he ever made before the Sims! It's got city simulation (SimCity), planet simulation (SimEarth), and biology simulation (SimLife).

All you need now is distinct, trackable psychology for critters to get The Sims, and maybe something new, like reincarnation (SimKarma), so that interesting and effective personalities keep showing up in the networked universe.
Actuually, I think Sim Earth is more ecosystem (biology) simulation, not planet simulation. Planet simulation would focus more on things like techtonics, atmospherics, gravity, etc.
