    From SimCity to Real Girlfriend: 20 years of sim games

    An interesting year retrospective on sim games: "In researching this article, I came across two major stumbling blocks. First was the seemingly innocuous question, "What is a sim game?" Some critics take the narrow view that only vehicle sims can claim the label, while others think immediately of the Sim franchise (of which SimCity, SimAnt, and The Sims are perhaps most famous) developed primarily by Maxis and Will Wright."

    SC4 is the 1st game i ever got that was part of the Sims francise. I knew that there were predecessors to SC4 but I had no idea Sim City's history was that long. It's amazing that with improving technology , the series seems to get better and better. Though it is a shame that some games like SC Societies hurt the franchise the whole concept of building empires is still a lot of fun
