The name of Sid Meier will forever be known as one of the most inspiring figures in the video game industry. For over 20 years, he’s been at the forefront of making some of the greatest video games ever created, including his landmark turn-based strategy series Civilization. These games allow you to control historical nations including Greece, Persia, China, America, India, Russia and many, many more. You are then given the chance to develop theses nations further through the ages, starting from the bronze age and all the way through to the age of space travel. The Civilization series is highly regarded as one of the most important strategy games ever and even today many other developers of strategy games have used Civilization as the standard to meet.
