    I said it before release and I will say it again now, kids. They put it in the hands of kids. The younger devs of today are what we call the millennials. They are not as hungry, ambitious or frankly as intelligent. What did everybody expect.

    How exactly did the intelligence of developers drop between generations?

    I told you above, it's a millennials thing. Society in general (apart from the select few genius') is in regression.

    Certainly in my country we live in times where everything is handed to them for nothing and you don't have to work to get a house, car, best tele, playstation etc. The hunger and passion isn't there like it was for young guys in the 80's for example.

    That's how I see it in general. Don't get me wrong the people at the very top are smarter of course but I'm talking the general populace and I blame Firaxis for it all! ;)

    The overall average IQ in developed countries has dropped by 1-2 IQ-points in the last 20 years, you still haven't explained how you think that specifically pc-developers have dropped so significantly that it's worth describing them as "less intelligent".

    I'm talking about these two who headed up our little project here but we are getting off topic and I'll say it again. They are both millennials. Case closed in this instance.

    Millennials are still not noticeable less intelligent than the generations before them.
