Memories of SimCity

This weekend I picked up Cities: Skylines.  It had been getting good reviews and was a reasonable price, so why not?  I used to be a big fan of the SimCity games, going all the way back to the original.  Did you know there was a Super Nintendo version?

I remember, back before I had a computer of my own, I used to go to a friends house to play SimCity.  In fact, he used to bring print outs of the city into school and we'd plan what to do next.  It was on dot matrix paper, of course.  Good times.

Games used to feel so epic back then.  Sure, they are more detailed and complicated now.  Cities: Skylines brings back some of those feelings compared to SimCity 5.  So I certainly think it was a good purchase.
