SimCity's Creator Calls SimCity Launch "Inexcusable"

Will Wright created SimCity. Will Wright did not work on the digital clusterfuck that was is the 2013 version of SimCity, though, so what did he think of the game?

The game itself, he says it's "good", and that he enjoys "playing it a lot". But in an interview with GI.biz, he talks more about the game's launch, and now that he no longer works at developers Maxis, his thoughts were about the same as yours or mine.

"I feel bad for the team", he says.

"I could have predicted - I kind of did predict there'd be a big backlash about the DRM stuff. It's a good game; I enjoy playing it a lot."

"It was kind of like, 'EA is the evil empire, there was a lot of 'Let's bash EA over it,'" he adds. "That was basically inexcusable, that you charge somebody $60 for a game and they can't play it. I can understand the outrage. If I was a consumer buying the game and that happened to me, I'd feel the same."
