Since Activision’s Little Computer People, El-fish and forward I have loved life sims. Imagine how cool it would have been for all the little fish in Deus Ex, swimming along the ‘aquatic archetype paths’ through the maps, to be imports from El-fish… Anyway, at last, Spore is coming. I played with it at E3 one year and instantly had fun as soon as I put my hands on the creature creator. I can’t wait. Civ Revolutions soon, then Spore. This is going to be a good year, with these games plus Far Cry 2, Mercs 2 and Fallout 3 coming.
