10 Best City Building Games That Let You Simulate Real Life

7743 ratings | 834799 views
Back in 1989 the first important city building game was being released, it was named SimCity and offered the players the opportunity to continually shape and improve their towns. 27 years later we have a myriad of other games that allow us to be city managers and builders. Because we wanted to see how things evolved throughout time we made a Top 10 list of the best city construction games on the market. We included only one title per franchise, namely the one that offers the widest gameplay variety, has the best mechanics and received the best reviews from critics and players alike.

This was the best Top10 video i have ever seen. - No stupid 10 minutes intro, - no loud and disturbing music, - no extreme sports moderator like shouting in the mic, - no extra 10 minutes animation for each number, - Creator of the video sounds like a symphatetic guy, not like a crazy gay kid, Thank you!

Cities Skylines doesn't deserve to be on top, it crashes most of the time, and small mods can break it, it's very bad

Simcity 4 is so much better than CS as simulation... City builders players are generally much interested in city design but I am 90% a management player and SC4 engine a mega update/revolution of 2k/3k. Just read the official guide, it is amazing. It has also a so much better art (music, humor, ...). Banished is also really interesting, it is more about managing your population cycles and other cycles to reach synchronicity. I look forward Citystate

SimCity is better than Cities Skylines because you can F*cking upgrade your service buildings in SimCity. Unlike Cities:Skylines.

Ea/Maxis did shitty things to Sim City there is no doubting that. However it's still vastly superior to Skylines and I feel many flocked to it to further stick it to Sim City. Also can't really recommend any of the Anno games they are so shallow and get dull real fast.
I fucking LOVE cities skylines

You forgot to mention how the devs of Cities XL went bankrupt and abandoning the project. Focus Interactive bought it and released a new version yearly... Not for free, which means that you have got essentially screwed over if you bought the 2008 original version. Although I'm happy to see that Sim City 4 is on the list and not the stillborn SimCity. But can not agree about Cities Skylines being better than Sim City 4, since it lacks difficulty and complexity. The only thing which might become a problem in that game is traffic, which essentially makes it just a traffic simulator, while Sim City 4 was much much more than that.

I HATE CITIES SKYLINES! it is unplayable because it wont let you zone residential when there are too many jobs and not enough people, also, this causes buildings to abandon and in the end, you are left with ONLY abandoned buildings!

Have you heard about "Factorio"?

Caesar IV is part of of CAESAR series but wasn't it made by a different developer studio? If so I believe you should have at least gone with another game made by the impressions team.

Wow, Cities Skylines looks my kind of game, but my PC is shit...
denzal689 (8 months ago)
I actually got a new laptop for school since I first posted that comment. I tested my specs for this game on Game-Debate and I think I got a grey check for graphics, but otherwise, it should work on low settings at least.
j (8 months ago)
denzal689 ouch man. u could get a newer pc (or DIY) with Ryzen CPU's and gaming GPU if you need to game on a budget
denzal689 (8 months ago)
... My PC has a 2.6 GHz dual core processor (Celeron), 4 GB of RAM, 1,695 MB graphics (64 MB video RAM!) I got this in 2012, and it was $500... If only I knew more about computers back then
j (8 months ago)
denzal689 You don't need an expensive pc to play it. I am playing Cities Skylines almost daily on a 2011 Dell XPS 17 (L702X) that has an Intel i7-2630QM, 5400 RPM 500GB HDD, 8 GB 1333 MHz RAM and 3GB VRAM Nvidia GeForce GT 555M. Hardly a gaming rig by 2017 standards, but runs Cities Skylines at max settings without any problems. Cities Skylines is actually only a lot more CPU intensive once you start adding mods, which I never use.

ANNO 2070 is not working even in 2017. I have bought the game, submitted countless tickets. However, ANNO series are great games. However, they totally fucked up the stability of the game and not to mention that even with original game, one cannot log in and sign into the game at all. I wasted over 50 Euros on the game just to be unable to play it at all. Periodically I try, but no Joy. Cities Skylines is amazing. But you need to have very strong PC to be able to load many assets and new buildings and MODs. I have 20GB Ram and I have I7 processor with over 4900 assets and mods. I recommend Cities Skylines over any other city building game.

What about SimCity 5?
helloed294 (10 months ago)
Sim City 4 is the ultimate. Nearly 15 years on and it's still the best city simulator I've ever played.
Eetu Sunnari (2 months ago)
+dying man you are right
It's up to personal preference, but the fact that the SC4 modding community is still hugely active speaks volumes. As someone who has played both extensively, they are just too different to say which is better, but nothing can replace SC4. It doesn't look like anything on the horizon will either.

It’s nothing compared to cities skylines.

Great list, but in my opinion, settler 6 is the better settler 7 and anno 1404 was the best anno I have ever played. I am happy Sim City 4 is in that list Great top tier list 👍

I Wouldnt Mind Trying The Anno Games Shame They Made By Ubisoft As I Wont Buy Any Game That Requires UPlay ....
manhattanskylinesnow (1 year ago)
Should have mentioned that SimCity 4 also has a very large online B.A.T. community making custom content to add into the game (realistic textures, mods, buildings , skyscrapers, vehicles and so forth). The communities make some of the best plug ins that keep the game alive and always fresh, even after so many years later. Still my tops favorite to this day because I always have new content and can even make my own with the B.A.T. tool.
