Looking in The Past With Sim City

Back when I was young, I played Sim City on the SNES. It was fantastic! Building cities, keeping an eye on the people, and then destroying my very own creations! While the Sim City on the SNES wasn't the first one made, it will always be my favorite in the series.

The reason I'm talking about this is because I just started playing Sim City DS. As I was playing, I realized how I enjoyed the Sim City on the SNES a lot more. There is a lot more going on in the DS version, and I found that to be the case in all the Sim City sequels. The Sim City I loved was very simple to play, but building a very large city was very difficult. Also, I'm not liking using the touch screen (I end up building roads where I don't want them).

Sim City DS just isn't working for me. You ever just pick up a game, start playing it, and realized that it's not for you? That's the case for me with Sim City DS. I won't do a review on it unless I get more into it. I don't think there will ever be a sequel to Sim City that will be as great as the first (same with The Sims). Well that's unless there is an HD remake! They just remade Earthworm Jim, why can't they remake Sim City!?

While Sim City and The Sims sequels may not be as great as the first, the Tycoon games usually usually make great sequels that are usually better. Roller Coaster Tycoon 2, and Zoo Tycoon 2 were amazing games. While some people might have hated the Mall Tycoon game, I loved it. I haven't played the second, but it's on the list of games to try out.

Note: This doesn't mean I like all the Tycoon games. Some are just awful, like Skatepark Tycoon, and the Skiing one.
