New Footage From Next Year’s ‘SimCity’ Game Proves Way Too Addictive

Posted 8 years ago by Games

There’s a reason I never got into the popular world-building game Minecraft. It’s not because I didn’t want to. It’s because I’m afraid of what it would do to me. You see, back in the early ’90s, I was pretty well obsessed with playing SimCity. The ability to simultaneously play God and city planner was an overwhelming combination.

I played SimCity, SimCity 2000, SimTown, SimAnt—pretty much every Sim variant up until The Sims. That’s when I realized I had a problem. That’s when I knew I had to quit cold turkey.

I stumbled across this video showing gameplay of the all-new SimCity scheduled for release in 2013. Watching it gave me that same high I experienced way back when, plus then some. They’ve taken the already great game and put it on steroids. Not only is the design better than ever but your world can now coexist with others in a sort of, multiplayer sim world.

It looks like I’ll be falling off the wagon come next year. I better saving up on sleep now.
