For those who follow me like a dirty stalker, you might know that I am a connoisseur of city-building strategy games, particularly SimCity. I am not ashamed to admit to the hundreds (okay, thousands) of hours spent between the 4 main games... and the two SimCity 2000 spinoffs. Remember Streets of SimCity and SimCopter? Not the greatest bearers of the Sim name, but it was the late 90s. Anyway, the last few years have been all quiet on the SimCity front as I expanded my horizons with other games. Then about a month ago, this happened.
152 hours later, here I am a SimCity 4 addict. I still perform normally, go to work, do adult things like eat, work, sleep, and even bathe. However, I now eat, work, sleep, and even bathe SimCity. Productivity is down, but it's not at critical mass just yet. I can quit whenever I want... right?
This also explains why I've been more lurker than active member of the community lately. And for that, you're welcome!
Time to get back to my region. My splines need reticulating, but you all think we can get Maxis to pull a Double Fine and ask for SimCity 5 funding? I would fully support it if EA wasn't such a massive gaming conglomerate with money flowing out of every orifice. Maybe I'll ask them nicely.
