So someone actually thought about this, sat down and fleshed it out, pitched it to an investor(s)/publisher and then went ahead and developed it? No where along the line did anyone question that Sim City with a monthly fee might not be a real good idea?

This should have been quashed long before the first whiteboard.


I don't always drink carbonated Mexican rat piss, but when I do, I prefer Dos Equis.
