Games of Simulation

Simulation games are video or computer games that focus on simulating realistic scenarios in gaming environments. Taking care of virtual people or pets in games like The Sims, establishing cities in Civilization or SimCity, and building amusement parks or zoos in games like Roller Coaster Tycoon or Zoo Tycoon are examples of these types of games. Some of these games can take hours to complete and are extremely difficult. In fact, some games are played because you can generate several correct solutions or different permutations of the game depending on your choices, rather than to win. Other simulation games are more win-or-lose in nature, or demand completion of specific tasks before progressing to the next level.

SimCity

However, many consider SimCity to be the first true simulation game sold to the general public, despite the fact that several driving games that came before it might also be considered simulation models. SimCity was first released in 1989, and there have been numerous updates since then that allow you to create cities, collect taxes, and develop communities. You could either start from the ground up and develop your own city, or you could play as a certain city that was experiencing problems that you needed to solve.

During the construction of your city, you’d have to factor in issues like rising population, natural calamities (including Godzilla appearances), civilian dissatisfaction, and power outages. A game might last as long as you wanted it to, and you could always start over if you despised your city. SimCity was heralded as the start of a new era in simulation games, and it spawned a slew of imitators in the years that followed.
