Any Simcity fans here?
#1
I don't really play the game very much anymore, but Simcity 4 and Simcity 3000 were definitely classics for sure. Unfortunately the new game has kindof crashed and burned.

Anyone else a fan of what is probably the most popular PC simulation game of its kind to exist?

I read the negative reviews about the new game on the Internet as well. Servers were always down and it was day 1 of release. Talk about angry customers. I might have wanted a refund if the game needed an Internet connection to play (I heard that there was no offline play).

To be honest, I'm not really a fan of SimCity games. I played a couple of the old games, however, it's not the type of game that I'm interested in. For a start, there are no people. You can only build buildings, roads, you name it and the game will build it. I'm more of a Sims fan - the one with people.

Sims 3 is one of my favorite games. I've also played the Midieval version on my iPad which was fun. The only Sims game with people that I never really liked was Sims Free Play for Android and iOS. You literally have to wait for an action to be completed. Taking a long shower takes 45 minutes, x_X

Perfect emulation of real life showers!
I mod Paradox games. Click here to see my many adventures in doing that.

My definition of a "long shower" is about 2 hours. xD

The Sims 3 is one of my favourite games too! Big Grin I've been playing the franchise since the original came out... so over 13 years now. Tongue It's funny how it doesn't feel like it has been that long. Each version has its advantages over the others. I really like the create-a-style tool in TS3...

I also just love how it can take an hour to get from the living room to the bedroom. Tongue

I am a HUGE fan of the Sim City series. I first became addicted with Sim City 2000, poured countless hours into Sim City 4, and well... I do play the new Sim City. However, recently it no longer lets me play one of my cities anymore after pouring hours into it, it was a big disappointment. The new Sim City would be way better if the maps were bigger.

As soon as they increase the map size, I think I'll be more willing to consider the new game. Right now, because I always love building larger cities, the small map size is extremely limiting.

We'll see what EA does. They do seem to be working very hard to improve the new game, and I think it has a lot of potential to be great if they fix the key things that their customers don't like about it (such as the map sizes).

The game has improved tremendously since launch. I bought it when it was released, and I felt burnt with not being able to join any region. I didn't play the game for a few months after that. I recently started playing again, and installed all the updates and it's a lot better now. But yeah, then I run out of space on maps.

Yeah it seems to have improved a lot. As soon as the map sizes are larger again, I think it will be a great game hands down. Not much you can do in a city tile that's equivalent to 1 square mile in real life. That's like simneighborhood. Tongue

Yeah I heard... that basically destroys any chance that the game will actually be enjoyable for a large percentage of fans out there. :\

I love the new Simcity 5. Highly updated graphics and all. Just wish you could build a bigger city. I've never a problem getting on the servers. I also played the original 1989 release of Simcity. Probably one of my all time favs.
