We – people our age, ‘our generation’, youths, kids, teens, etc. – are in a strange kind of limbo. Some of us grew up with computers and can install an operating system in a matter of hours; some of us grew up with computers and yet have difficulty accessing our emails; and some simply don’t know how to do anything more useful than ‘Poke’ on facebook. Regardless, I think the general consensus is that we are computer kids of a computer age. (How many hours, for example, have I spent in front of a monitor today? I’m so not answering you that one.)
Spore, one of the greatest and most ambitious ideas in videogame history. But does it work? In short yes, however it may not be all what the demos given by Will Wright (the visionary behind spore and other games like The Sims and Sim City) portrayed it to be.
