  Interview 2 May  
  The Guardian had an interview with Will Wright where they talk about Spore but also a bit about his past:

"My focus started shifting more and more to players, and what they were doing," he says, "Because I found that fundamentally as interesting, or more interesting, than the actual games [was] parallel play. Sitting and looking at what someone else has done with the same game as you is fundamentally interesting to me."
