I think the last Sim City is the only one I never played. I don’t think it showed up on platforms like Steam, so I haven’t caught it on sale either. I recall from reading Qt3 that it was pretty hit or miss with folks.
I did play Societies, but that failed to grab me. I hear it changed a bit from when it first released, and maybe became a little better. Can anyone attest to that? It’s another one that isn’t on Steam, and I doubt I could find my old disk for it.
@mtkafka, your post did remind me of another title I liked. Not Grand Ages Rome, but a game called CivCity: Rome. I recall that it was pretty good, but I’m not sure how it’s aged in the past 13 years.
