What's the Deal With All These "Simulator" Games?

There are a few theories as to why there's so much hype over "novelty" simulator games, but either way you look at it, it boils down to brilliant marketing from the developers. (Bear Simulator, Dev, Goat Simulator, Industry, PC)

Its a God damn goat that can fly and tracktor dubstep this goes beyond any flappy bird craze because it's not intended for the mainstream but for the niche community. There aren't any stay at home moms hoping on these simulators because they have their quarks and actually require you to know what to do even of you're doing it wrong.Also the appeal of mobile is simple to get and start play this isn't the case with simulations.
