In an era of first person shooters, driving simulators, and MMOs, city building games are a rare breed. There are many gamers who played hundreds, if not thousands, of hours over several years perfecting their city building skills. SimCity was not the first but it was the most successful franchise in this genre. As it has lost its luster, fans of this genre have been hoping for a new franchise to come in and outdo the former city building leader; thus enters Cities: Skylines. This game has been an answered dream to many fans who have been waiting so long to play something that is so familiar, yet a little different.
