I hope Sim City 5 is a first person shooter.


GTA 23: Streets of SimCity
(kinda like the old simcopter, you make the city then play in it)

Listing to the interview with the guys of Maxis it looks like SimCity 5 will be a more advanced SimCity 4. No mega cities, just small specialized cities working together within a region… :/

sounds like this game has potential, hopefully they don't run this franchise further into the ground

You mean the way a real city works?...

Yeah, but being able to build a megacity would be an awesome option! I don't think you could call the Sim City games a simulation when you could destroy it with the likes of alien and dinosaur attacks :).

It'd be wicked if you could build lots of small cities at first, and as they start filling their map area, be able to merge them into megacities.

Last time I checked Amsterdam, the city where I live, fulfills more roles than just specializing into one. It also packs more residents rather than just being limited to three or four hundred thousand (which was the case in SimCity 4).

There are cities that truly specialize into one thing, like being a university town or a town made to house industrial workers, but those are mostly smaller towns. I'm talking about being able to build a true metropolis that has multiple facets to it like in SimCity 3000 and 2000.

That's how SimCity 4 works. The thing is you just can't play them at the same time. You'll constantly end up leaving one (freezing it in time) and go to another. Switching back and forth, back and forth. Annoying as hell.
