Hello Mauri,


all right, I´ll try. There are so many interesting games but here comes few recomendations:


- Harvest moon -games (countryside, farming, sim,  positive game for children)  (different Nintendo-consoles)

- SimCity (you allready know this, city simulation)maybe from SimCity 3000 and forward (pc)

- Civilization games (I-V, civilization simulation) - especially with different mods and other scenarios players have developed - this is important (PC)

- Tropico III - IV  (dictator sim!)  (PC)

- Age of empires -series (building and warfare)

- Empire Earth (especially I-II) (same as earlier, building and warfare)

- Cities XL 2012 (new city simulator - quite fancy and funny)

- From dust (very interesting god/civilization sim, indie-game) (PC, Xbox360, Playstation 3)

- Europe Universalis III complete (heavy, complex warfare, political game) (PC)


With best wishes, Pekka H

Hello again,


there are so many more games. But I here is quite new one which combines questions of transportation and city life. Player tries to manage transportation needs of different cities. This game is quite funny and flashy but... too much edutainment? But worth of checking!
