Games of Ill Repute: Simcity 2013

Role-playing survival game is willing to take risks

A special video series today. The Games of Ill Repute is a series dedicated to looking at controversial games to see if they were worthy of being scorned, or if there were some good elements there. For this one, I took a look at Simcity 2013: A great idea that was mashed into the ground thanks to EA’s insistence on multiplayer in a city builder. If you would like to see more of these series, we can make them an ongoing goal over on and patrons can vote on what game for me to look at next.
