reality is compelling right off the bat

Will Wright: I think the idea of having a game based on reality is compelling right off the bat because everyone has some experience with the subject of the game. I don’t know anyone who has actually fought a dragon or flown a fighter plane in combat. But the themes our games are about, almost everyone brings their own experience to. Also, after people play these Sim games, it tends to change their perception of the world around them, so they see their city, house or family in a slightly different way after playing.
