Gaming News: "It's Only Fitting"
Posted: Thursday January 10th, 2008 by

The CMP Game Group will be presenting strategy game super developer, Sid Meier, with the Game Developers Lifetime Achievement Award at this year's GDC. Mister Meier has collected many such awards over the course of his career and was inducted into the Computer Museum of America's Hall of Fame in 2002.

Sid Meier has been the lead developer/creative director on 85 million games and all of them have his name splashed across the top box. It's okay though, I don't mind. As a matter of fact I have a copy of Sid Meier's Civilization IV signed by Sid sitting amongst all the various gaming goodies I've collected over the years. So, admitting my bias, I completely think he deserves every accolade that can be heaped upon him. I just think that, in the spirit of the games he's responsible for, he should have build his own award statuette from the ground up. I'm sure after all these years of making us do it, he could appreciate the parallel.

Congratulations Sid.

Yes, the comic was intentionally left unfinished. It was going to take me 10 more turns to learn and use "inking". I got tired of waiting and wandered away from my desk. That's when the Incas attacked and layed waste to my clipboard.
