MMGN.com blogger writers: I started playing SimCity with one goal: to make lots and lots of money. Truth is I suck at making money in real life so I wanted to translate that into a virtual setting.
While the game does a great job of teasing you into making a big metropolis with lots of people, it takes a lot of time to manage a city of thousands of people that require utilities, services and infrastructure.
The simplest way to make money is to get something for free --- like coal, oil and ore -- and sell it at a profit.
It's capitalism, SimCity style!
