I've said it before: I don't understand gaming. I'm a geek that was born without that gene, so I guess I'm an outcast amongst outcasts. However, I love the idea of the Sims games (having played SimCity and, of all things, SimAnt for short periods of time in college). And I'm reallly fascinated by the potential of a new game by SimCity creator Will Wright called Spore. Within an online universe, you create life and evolve it from amoeba to interplanetary civilization. Highly developed civilizations can then interact with each other.

Holy crap.

I'm not sure that I'd play it--again, no game-gene--but what cool software to work on.
