Terminology

City simulation video games are video games that have the player focus on building, developing, and running a city or major metropolitan area, with a main focus of the city being a semi-realistic simulation. The obvious inspiration for this genre is SimCity, the latest iteration of which is the 2013 video game of the same name. Many open-source developers have made iterations of the basic concepts of this genre, such as OpenCity and Lincity. Other games of this genre include Cities: Skylines.
