This one is going to be interesting. Just like Microsoft’s Flight Simulator series, SimCity has been in developemnt for 20+ years. Some games are just too good to kill, although some companies like Microsoft do it anyway. It will be interesting to see if Maxis will follow Microsoft’s example of radically changing the concept with the lastest version of SimCity. Will they dumb it down and alienate long term fans, or do they go for evolution and reward loyal fans? In all fairness, even Sid Meier – the greatest strategy game brain in history – chose a strange path when he revitalized Railroad Tycoon with the horrible Railroads! game.
