"Last month, amidst the bustle of the DICE Convention hall (http://www.gamespy.com/articles/686/686748p1.html), we snagged game design legend Sid Meier and his Civilization IV partner-in-crime Soren Johnson for a quick interview. As befitting the informal nature of the DICE summit, we wanted to get some quick off-the-cuff remarks about what was happening in gaming. Is the industry stagnating? With the new console generation here, is PC gaming in trouble or stronger than ever? The big picture was the question, and no holds were barred."
