In the world I would have wanted it, I would have been paid 40 bucks/hour to play Sim City 2000 under MS-DOS. I'd have made a living on it, plus the rest (at 50 bucks/hour you can pay your bills by working part-time on Sim City 2000 for 20 hours/week, and then still get plenty of time to do whatever else... or your face will end up Maxis Sim City-2000 shaped 🤣)

Just add a webcam and streaming, and actually there are people who play games for a living as we speak.

The more sound cards, the better.

Simcity 2000 was pretty good for sure, but god did I hate having to deal with the plumbing. For this reason I prefer the original, especially the Amiga version. I think my favourite part of SC2000 was reading the news reports in their fake newspaper.

The plumbing is broken with purpose, as Maxis apparently felt like simulating their own state's issues with water supply... 🤣

SC3k Unlimited may be Windows-based, but it's basically 2000 on steroids (unfortunately minus waterfalls and water power).

I also really don't understand people claiming how SimCity is forcing an ultraliberal economic world view on people; they probably never played the games (or completely missed the part where you can have subsidies and free whatever for your SimCitizens...).

I have many fond memories of playing both SC2K and SC3K, but the jazz/minimalist soundtrack of 3000 seals it for me. One of my absolute favourite game soundtracks.

Would you like to hear the call of the Bull Moose?

It is a mistake to think you can solve any major problems just with potatoes.
