40 Simulation Video Games

From Detailed City Simulators to Tedious Lineup Games

— August 14, 2014 — Tech
These simulation video games make it possible for you to step into any kind of situation, instantly turning yourself into a race car driver, a yoga addict or a rampaging goat.

One of the newest and most exciting simulation games that's about to come out is the Sims 4, which promises players more emotional depth than ever before. As entertaining as it may be to play mayor and watch your city grow, or take on the role of a zombie hunter in the apocalypse, there are also plenty of video games that are designed to be the opposite of fun. Some great example of this are Taco Bell's The Waiting Game, Waiting In Line 3D and the Mini Metro Game, which lets you build and manage a city's subway lines.
