list of SimCity video gamesThe SimCity franchise is a series of city-building simulation games created by game designer Will Wright and developed by Maxis and later by Maxis’ parent company, Electronic Arts. The franchise has been around since 1989 and has seen several releases over the years.

The first SimCity game was released in 1989 for the Commodore 64, and was later ported to other platforms including the Amiga, Macintosh, and DOS. The game was a huge success and spawned a number of sequels and spin-offs. The game challenged players to build and manage their own cities, dealing with issues such as zoning, taxation, and infrastructure development.

SimCity 2000 was released in 1993 and introduced a number of new features, such as more advanced graphics, improved simulation capabilities, and new infrastructure options. SimCity 3000 was released in 1999 and further improved the game’s graphics and simulation capabilities.

In 2003, SimCity 4 was released, which introduced 3D graphics and a more complex simulation engine. The game also included a multiplayer mode for the first time, allowing players to connect and build cities together.

The franchise was rebooted in 2013 with the release of SimCity, which introduced new features such as online connectivity and a revamped simulation engine. However, the game was criticized for requiring an always-online connection, leading to server issues and poor performance at launch.

A new game, SimCity BuildIt, was released in 2014 for mobile devices. The game simplified the city-building mechanics of the franchise and focused on more casual gameplay.

In recent years, the franchise has been relatively quiet, with no new major releases announced. However, the popularity of city-building simulation games has led to the development of many new games in the genre, including Cities: Skylines and Surviving Mars, which have gained a large following among fans of the SimCity franchise.
