Modern technology has created some awesome products when it comes to sound and graphics, but all this modern technology can't teach a programmer to program a fun game. This was the case with Sim City Societies. Visually, the game was a masterpiece, but the gameplay was terrible and there wasn't much fun-factor behind the product. Not even a year later, EA decided to re-release the game, this time bundled with the previous Sim City. Sure, Societies is patched up and has new buildings and stuff, but it is still the same game. Just leave it to EA to take more of people's hard-earned money."
