Audio Interview with Sid Meier

right[/img]Gamers with Jobs recently conducted a conference call with Sid Meier, Director of Creative Development for Firaxis. During the interview, Sid discusses "the rise of Facebook, the future of strategy gaming, and the inevitability of co-op" as well as "the future of social gaming."

Given Firaxis’ announcement of Civilization Network for Facebook, the conversation gives pretty good insight into Sid’s views on the direction of PC gaming and what the future may hold for the Civilization series.

The full conference call is available on Gamers with Jobs or from this link directly (51 MB in size). Though the file is 1:28:58 in length, Sid’s first comments come at the 35:45 mark. If a transcript becomes available, we link to that as well.
