Since Sims has now been around for 5 years, Gamespy
took the time out to interview the creator of The Sims, Will Wright. The interview talks about how he came up with the idea of sims and how he began to make it. Here's a snippet:
[quote] Fargo: So when did you first get the idea that "I'm gonna make a game about people?"
Wright: I had a rough idea in '93 and I did a prototype of the building game and moving the person around and having them interact with objects back in '93. Then as it became more focused around the people I started thinking about having them talk and interact, to have moods and relationships. It became real clear that we needed a pretty robust behavioral model, especially since the user would be designing the entire environment. [/quote]
It's a very interesting read for any sims fans. Head to Gamespy
