Sid Meier wants to make Civilization MMOG?


I heard Ghandis glasses add +5 to your economy

According to IGN, Sid Meier is quite interested in creating a MMOG based on is Civilization franchise. He stated:

"I think someday I would like to try a game in that genre," said Meier. "It really benefits from creativity and new ideas, but we're still in the very early stages of exploring the possibilities of it. I certainly would like to play around with a MMO concept in the future."

I, for one, think this could be a terrific idea. Hard to implement maybe, but could end up being a whole lot of fun.

Imagine, if you could, that you pick scientist, soldier, economist, entertainer, and so forth and you have to live in a city and make it work. Then when the time comes and you go to war if you're a soldier you have to leave the city to attack or defend or hold up in the city to defend it.

Sure the game may seem boring for anyone who doesn't pick soldier but assuming Sid Meier puts his genius behind the game like he always seems to do I can see him creating some fun and useful ways to play other characters besides a soldier.

Well however it could work, I believe Sid Meier could pull it off´┐Ż
