360Sync: God games were designed with the thought in mind that most people, to some extent, have some sort of God complex. The idea of controlling the destiny of other beings, even if only in a simulation, is a great temptation. Some players are noble rulers and feel remorse if even one of their subjects perish. Others are more apt to rain destruction and doom on their civilization at every opportunity. The whole point of God games is to give the player the keys and let them decide how everything will play out.
