Sim City: Why is it so bloody fun to play?

Rate this Entry
As the title says, why is it so much fun to play for me? Sure, it has DRM, meaning you have to be connected to the Internet in order to play it, and the cities can't be very large compared to older games, and that logging into hte game was difficult in the beginning. And yet, I keep playing it simply because I'm having fun.

Has anyone else tried playing it yet? What's your experience with the game?

    From what you're saying here, it sound much more like buyers remorse than anything.

    Besides, why buy a full priced game when you can get SC4 cheaper, and then add some mods and have a blast (or hell, even vanilla should be better)? This really boggles me.

    I'm not getting Sim City 5. I mean, after 5 years they'll probably shut down the servers, then how will you play?

    The game is fun, but I prefer SimCity 4 DX (Steam).

    The actual fuck.

    I know it's on Steam, but really? It's been out longer than Steam itself.

    I was meaning that it was on Steam right now. Apologies.

    I've been reading up on this game, and, wow, everything about it sounds HORRIBLE when it comes to how EA is handling it. A modder basically discovered that you could easily play off-line without any major problems, the customer service for it has been dreadful, with EA literally banning their support numbers on their forums and such.

    You should literally boycott SimCity unless you enjoy forced always-online DRM in the future.

    Too bad EA doesn't care about their consumers once they have their money.

    Which is why people complaining should boycott. Show your opinion with your money and all.
    But I don't expect enough people will do so for EA to take notice.

    I'm not buying this one (despite loving the series) because I've read that even ignoring the entire shitfest with DRM, the game itself is hugely watered down compared to previous entries.

    Yeah, that's what I'm getting at. EA doesn't care. If they did we wouldn't have a need to boycott. (Unrelated: deja vu. I dreamed about this last night. Freaky.)

    Though on a related note, I've been boycotting the whatsits for 3 years. And I'm glad I did, because it seems like since then, there's been a new reason for me to dislike them popping up every day.
