SimCity

…Oh yeah.  SimCity.  I remember playing that as a kid.  RCI, Roads, and water pumps and electricity.  I remember all that, it was very enjoyable.  My brother (the political communications major) LOVED that game.

Reddit brought this video to my attention last week.  Over many versions SimCity became more and more complex.  It looks like they have finally started reducing complexity.  Especially when it comes to power, water, and roads.  They are all simplified into one system.  Instead of forcing you to lock yourself on to a preexisting grid, the system zones automatically based on the weird roads you draw.  Looks awesome.

Good thinking EA or Maxxis or whoever’s making this game.  Now, will it be on Steam?  #wishfullthinking
