The simulator videogames are famous for years already. They knew how to conquer a big slice of marketplace, with their simplicity and genius. We can’t not mention, as the undisputed king of the simulation, The Sims, life simulator videogame. But for simulation we mean endless things. There are games that really simulate everything, from the farm management, to the drive of a tractor, from the creation of a whole civilization to the game that simulates the growth of a tree for charitable purpose. Which are the best simulator videogames?
Timeless, unmissable, The Sims. It is without any doubt the most famous videogame of simulation of real life. And so, those who are not interested, might wonder why not to live a real life? Because The Sims is able to catch you and don’t let you go anymore, living the lifes of your Sims will be an unmatchable adventure.
The Sims is a big classic for PC, for which four version were released plus an incredible amount of expansions.
Even though the success that it had for Pc, where the playablity is without doubts higher, The Sims arrived basically on every console: PlayStation2, Xbox, GameCube, Gameboy Advance, Nintendo DS, Wii.
Furthermore the videogame of life simulation arrived even for mobile with many versions: The Sims Mobile, The Sims Social, The Sims FreeToPlay.
We couldn’t miss Minecraft neither, big classic of the simulation videogames. In this case the player will have to find the materials to build everything. To do it he will have to cut the trees, to dig the ground, to break the stones.
In this case the life simulation will be a little bit less real, but anyway we will be able to interact with our figures and live with them an extraordinary virtual life.
Maybe saying it seems a little bit funny, but one of the simulations that mostly had success is the one of a farm management. A big success had the versions connected with the social network Facebook, like FarmVille.
Farming Simulator, instead, seems to be one of the farm experience more real that we can try, by staying at home. No frills or coloured animals, so, with this videogame of farm life simulation we will really immerge ourselves in the mud, but without mess up our shoes.
The success of Farming Simulator brought to the realization of 19 versions of it.
Transport simulation videogames
To make millions of videoplayers curious are even the simulations of transports. How will be to pilot a plane? To run on a circuit with a racing car? To surf the seas with a jet sky?
But the means of transport are much more of what we think and so, for example, if you would like to feel the thrill of the truck driver life here you have Euro Truck Simulator.
If we want to open the wings and fly high in the sky we have to try Flight Sim Word or, the less recent, Flight Simulator for Pc, the undisputed king of the genre.
“Mind The Gap”, the london underground is waiting for us for a breathtaking trip, or maybe not? Up and down for the lines of the most ancient underground, discovering the stations, which run fast and alternate themselves with the dark tunnels.
The stranger simulation videogames
There are so many simulation videogames that will be very hard to list all of them. But some developers had fun to create some of them which are really strange.
In robot vacuum simulator we will wear the shoes of a vacuum robot. Right one of those autonomous vacuum with the shape of an ufo, that go around our houses. “Why should we waste our time to save the world when we can spend hours to clean the floor of our house”.
Let’s talk about Goat Simulator, where we will become goats. There aren’t so many of videogames so much trash and no sense like this one. Because this game doesn’t really have a meaning. The only purpose is the one to destroy everything, detroy the houses, locking the horns to the people, jump into a cliff.
Finally, a very unmatchable videogame: Pope Simulator. The name says all already, are you ready to rule the Vatican City? To solve the problems that affect the pope everyday and to take the most important decisions? It can appear like the latest trash, but at the end of all it’s a very realistic politic-strategic videogame.
