Great recent simulation games?

I got Euro Truck Simulator 2 on an impulse and boy, I was surprised. The game is awesome! Do you guys know any other games like this?

Wait. Really? This is off topic but generally how long does a play session of yours last? How long does it take you to deliver cargo?

I think it takes like 15 minutes.

It takes about 30 minutes to get from London to Manchester. I've heard a trip from Glasgow to Vienna would take about 3 hours RL time, but overall most of the more lucrative routes takes about half an hour.

How is the business management side of this game? Describe things to me.

I'm still the only driver in my business, but you can hire more drivers when you improve your garage. You can take loans from the bank and that kinda stuff.

Is there a requirement to upgrade like "deliver x amount of cargo" beyond just the money required?

I just got this game after the QL and I ended up playing over 8 hours in my first sitting. I don't remember being so pulled into a game since WoW first came out. Driving with a xbox controller and keyboard buttons for all the switches. I have to say, I was blown away by the graphics. Not the best in the world, but they are rather good. Makes Train Simulator look a little bit dated

God damn a sim game has never made me want to go out and buy a $250 racing wheel set so bad before. After watching the quick look I felt that if I got the game, it wouldn't be worthy of just a controller or Kb/m. But I might have to break on that.

Had allot of fun with it using a trackIR5 got some good time out of it, i don't have a racing wheel and probably wouldn't buy one since there's few games id have to use it in but the game is totally serviceable and enjoyable with a 360 pad, and it works as another podcast listening game.

I wont play it too much past this week since simply driving to and fro is all that's to the game and the management of bushiness side of things isn't all that in depth and entertaining but it was totally worth the £15 i shelled out for it.
