Earlier this week, I sat down with Abby Rapoport and special guest and freelance writer Rowan Kaiser, to discuss the new Sim City. As total wonks, we'd all be fans of the original versions, which require players to build cities and make sure they run properly and efficiently. Will the new game spawn a generation of responsible city planners? Listen below.
I wrote about The Sims, an offshoot brand by the same original developer, ages ago in a piece called Moral Combat. Abby wrote about how sims can't change social classes here. Rowan will be writing about the new game for the Prospect next week, so stay tuned!
