Game Designers Should Create A "Positive Climate"

I like Sid Meier and, for the most part, I agree with what he is saying. I also think some of the best games out there are filled with "glorified violence" and, when done correctly, it definitely has its place. "I'm certainly not in favor of any sort of censorship - we're artists, we're creative and we should be able to do what we want. On the other hand, it's hard to say our games are immersive and grab people, allow them to participate and make them the stars, and then say that there's no impact, or that it doesn't affect them. So I think we have to walk that line. I think people know the difference between fantasy and reality - gamers are very mature and intelligent people. However, whatever we can do to create a positive climate we should do," he said, after noting that his games never "glorified violence." Comments
