This is a treat. Ten minutes of SimCity (http://www.simcity.com/en_US), showing a city being simulated all the way from its humble beginnings as a field to its brash middle period as a nascent tourist trap. Iā??m unable to remove the frown that the social and online aspects (http://www.rockpapershotgun.com/2012/04/20/maxis-simcitys-always-online-req-not-about-piracy/) of the game have stitched into my forehead, but Iā??m also unable to banish the smile that the multitude of systems at work (http://www.rockpapershotgun.com/2012/04/25/simcity-preview/) brings to my face. Rather than being about plonking down zones and buildings, this SimCity tracks and models individual elements in great detail. That level of simulation fascinates me.
