www.ClassicGameRoom.com Classic Game Room presents CGR’s ON THIS DAY IN GAMING! Happy Birthday, Will Wright! On January 20, 1960, the creator of the incredibly successful and influential Sims franchise was woven into existence. Along with contemporaries Peter Molyneux and Sid Meier, Wright would be largely responsible for the popularization of the ‘God Game’ genre, a game that offers scenarios built around complex systems without any plot or win-lose outcome. Appealing to the female demographic more than any other title in the history of video games, Sim City and the even more successful Sims would prefigure the broadening market that has blown open today.
