  1. Cities: Skylines
  2. Counter-Strike: Global Offensive
  3. Grand Theft Auto V
  4. Cities: Skylines
  5. Cities: Skylines
  6. Ori and the Blind Forest
  7. DRAGON BALL XENOVERSE
  8. PAYDAY 2
  9. Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number
  10. H1Z1

One frustrating thing is that people don't stay close to home. You lay a new zone with everything they could ever want and they're still traveling across the entire city to work in old downtown.

Sounds like the most realistic thing in the game.

Yeah, that's called the commute. It's not because there's jobs close to you that this is where you'll be hired.

I presume they take commute length into account when picking a job but won't switch work for that reason. That's quite realistic, most people stay in their rut.

Transport tip: Go to Overlays -> Public Transport (buses/metro/trains, whatever it's called). This shows the same data overlay as these tools but rather than add or change infrastructure or route paths, you can change route names and colours (alternatively, click on a bus and then "modify route"). Giving overlapping routes different colours makes designing them much easier, and the vehicles change colour too!

I'm still on my first city, 20 hours in, and just hit 44K with 3.5 million in the bank. It could probably be a lot bigger but I spend a lot of time messing with walkways, busses, metros, etc. Lots of micro with an occasional pause to lay out a new massive neighborhood. Sometimes I just let the camera follow a citizen as they get around the city.

One frustrating thing is that people don't stay close to home. You lay a new zone with everything they could ever want and they're still traveling across the entire city to work in old downtown... but I guess that could be because of efficient public transit. I don't tend to see them driving when they're doing that.

I think the big question to ask is whether you had fun playing SC3. I find Cities Skylines to have quite a bit more Thinking Required(tm) than any of the Sim City games, especially because bad traffic solutions will absolutely cripple everything.

I'm now on my 7th city, and I've yet to have one pass 40K (my current one seems to be doing well though, it's @ 28K and rising steadily). But I actually have a lot of fun starting over and implementing new ideas (which are not necessarily better ones.)

I heartily recommend it, but if you didn't really have much fun playing SC, then I doubt you'd have much fun playing this.

On the flipside, if you don't feel like fucking with the difficult parts yourself, just download a save from the workshop and you can basically get just about anything you want.

Well, they'd be starting from scratch, as they've never done one...
They had some guys that did one, once or twice before. But they fired them and closed the studio...

Well, they bought a studio that had done them, but they didn't let that studio actually build one.

Naaa, they'll probably just buy out a studio who's already doing it then with each iteration turn it into crap by letting marketing and check-boxes dictate game design.

Though eventually they'll likely also do away with the studio's name as it dissolves into the EA glob, presuming it manages to avoid the trash can full of old crap marketing thinks no one wants anymore.

Absolutely! This game seems much easier to get started unlike the SimCities. I'm having a blast building.
