Can’t wait for this game to come out, as much as I’ll probably dislike the whole Origin/always-online thing. I used to play SimCity 3000 way back when, got introduced to it by my brother (who would spend months on single saves :P).
It’s amazing how much enjoyment there can be in meticulously planning a city, expanding it, making trade routes… and then unleashing earthquake after earthquake on it until it collapses to the ground.
Anyone else ever get the chance to play the SimCity series?
I played a ton of SimTower and SimCity2000 back in the day. I was all about the Arcologies. I also all about using the Debug menu to summon monsters (ie. robots) to destroy them.
Are you implying there’s a new game coming out??
Takes a bit getting used to, but SimCity is one game that I never felt I ruined my interest by using cheats – a little free money occasionally would help me stay on my feet. I suppose I didn’t really see it as a winning game, just enjoyed the building of the game.
I used to also make custom maps with lots of waterfront surface area (strips of lands into the ocean) to keep my income up. 🙂
