Bruce Shelley a Hall of Famer

December 5th, 2008 by Troy Goodfellow · No Comments · Awards, Ensemble

Couldn’t happen to a nicer guy. I spoke to Mr. Shelley a few weeks ago, and he was very generous with his time when I was writing my series on ancient games.

Of the twelve inductees, six have reputations in the strategy game arena – Meier, Wright, Molyneux, Bunten, Morhaime and now Shelley. The genre has declined, relatively speaking, as new genres and platforms have taken hold of a mass audience. So eventually the raft of big strategy names from the 80s and 90s will fade.

So let’s enjoy while we can.
