Bruce Shelley used to work on the early Civ and RT titles? I had no idea! It's a shame how talented game devs working for major studios are often more or less unknown.

Unless they get to put their name on the cover like Sid of course.

I find the name "Sid Meier's Civilization" a bit too egocentrical. I mean you don't see George Lucas' Star Wars or Whoever's Call of Duty lol

It's even worse when you consider that he isn't really that involved in some of the games that bear his name. Like Sid Meier's Civilization II and Alpha Centauri, which were mostly sprung from the mind of Brian Reynolds. But apparently it gets the games sold.

You'd have to blame Robin Williams, the late comedian, for Sid Meier's name appearing on games. It was his idea.
