Rolling Stones created a list of the top 100 people who they believe to have impacted change in America the most.  Coming it at #84 is our very own Will Wright.  The change he is most responsible for is spawning Artifical Intelligence with SimCity, The Sims and now Spore.  Here’s what the magazine has to say:

WHAT HE’S CHANGING: This game-design god has simulated cities (SimCity), people (The Sims) and worlds (Spore), but what he’s really doing is spawning artificial existence.

FRIENDS SAY: Playing a demo of Spore, Robin Williams said, “I’m putting together a creature that would make Darwin say, ‘Hey, I’m not taking acid ever again!'”

ENEMIES SAY: “I hate it so far,” sociologist William Bainbridge said of Spore. “It seems like a cutesy children’s game.”

NEXT MOVE: Crossing over to TV; there’s been talk of a Sims show for years.

SEE THE CHANGE: SimCity, The Sims and Spore
