    For anyone unaware, MicroProse is the company that launched multiple video game household names (including Sid Meier) and made the original versions of multiple games that are huge franchises today, (e.g. UFO: Enemy Unknown which is the first X-Com game; the first few Civilization games; and a slew of fighter jet simulation games in the 90s, nearly all of which were commercial and critical successes). That's why they're notable here.

      Don't forget MechCommander, Worms, all the Tycoon games (Roller Coaster, Transport, Railroad), Master of Orion, etc... As a publisher, the mark they left on the early PC game scene is really hard...
