He's a great guy and deserves the credit.

Because he is a legend, why is it called MADDEN, same reasons and it is also brand recognition. Sid Meir means quality and a expectation that people want. That is what Tom Clancy used to have before he sold his name away.

Sid Meier is a pretty cool name. Has a natural essence of class to it, like American Mcgee.

Because Meier is like Meyer so it's a pretty cool last name

I would absolutely buy an autobiography entitled "SID MEIER's Sid Meier".

Very true. I used to be able to do this with steam up until about a year an a half ago, but then they just started putting crap up.

I was always under the assumption that it was to differentiate the computer game from the board game.
