Top 5 Will Wright Games

In response to Will Wright giving out his Top 5 favorite games, we've got a list of our own.

MSNBC recently posted a list of Spore creator Will Wright's five favorite games. As a man that is not bound the rules that govern the rest of us puny humans, dude went ahead and chose his five favorite series instead.


In honor of his picks, we've decided to choose our five favorite Will Wright games. Oh wait, make that our five favorite games featuring Will Wright.


Wright appears as an advisor in the Japanese version.















  



Uhh... we're pretty sure those are the only two games he actually appeared in, so we'll just have to invent a few. Hang on.

Sid Meier's Will Wright Tycoon - Build your very own game designer and increase the size of his brain (and his wallet) as you go from the Age of Helicopter Games to the Age of Simulating Everything. But watch out--rival Will Wrights will attempt to drive you out of business!

American McGee's Will - Everyone's favorite American is at it again with an episodic series of twisted tales from the hallowed halls of simulation game development.

John Romero's Willkatana, Bitch - OK, you know what? This joke is officially dead. Oh, wait. This buggy first-person shooter would feature Will Wright saying "I can't leave without my buddy SuperLucy" over and over again. There. Now it's beaten to death.

Willkatana, bitch. I can't believe anyone actually fell for that marketing campaign for that crappy game. It was so stupid, I dno't care if Romero was good at the time.

American McGee is not everyone's favorite American, he is the Americans' favorite McGee.

Hilarious, Jeff, your sense of humor never let's me down.

"I'm Will Wright, bitch!"
I should have used that for the blurb on his character page. XD

That part in the Simpsons game was classic. I loved that level. Will Wright truly is a legend.
