The Sims 3 that released in 2009? Why would you want a 6 year old game on this list? Or you mean The Sims 4, which released in 2014, and is 2 years old for this video.

Which PC? Are you asking about brand? Because that doesn't matter. What matters is hardware. The latest GTX1070 graphics card, 16GB RAM, and an i7 processor. Those would get you pretty far. It all depends on how much your budget is though.

+GamerZakh can you also do a builder game list 2016
GamerZakh

Ah, I'd love to make a video on those but there really aren't that many out each year haha. I currently put them in the Simulation category and have included Prison Architect, Factorio, Roller Coaster Tycoon World, and Terraria Otherworld (in Platformer). These were all spread out over the past 3 years though. I don't think you could find 10 interesting builder games being developed at the same time?

I always seem to be enjoying builder games that have some puzzle or survival aspect in them, and i can never find a good list for them when trying to find new games that are the same type. i enjoy games for which you need to use your head to get maximum efficiency/ can be paused/can use my creative aspects and have some kind of challange/survival. an other example is stardew valley & terraria & Minecraft (Redstone)

Planet coaster is also asking for preorders without even posting the minimum game requirements and do not offer a refund if you purchase it only to find out that you can not run it. I would not even consider Riot Civil unrest because of the graphics. On a 1920x1080 screen the graphics are simply atrocious. Hated Prison Architect, so I wouldn't like Rimworld. Besiege looks like something made around 2006 much less 2016. Guild 3 might be interesting to watch.

A simulation game is what it has always been (although since 2005 all bets on genres are now off. After all, prey tell me how Pillars of Eternity and Mass Effect are both cRPG's!), games that simulate a real state or machine or situation. An arcade based flight game would not be a simulation, but a game based around a specific plane and how it works would be. You can also simulate economies and historical situations, but they must be as true and detailed as possible, as the further from that "reality\

About Project Cars, I've received a return on investment. It was the deal between SmS and the founders. So there are neither scams nor thefts. For those who bought the game it's another story.

Ergh, you misclassify every one of your simulation game videos. Sure, some of these do a good job at capturing exceptional graphics, physics, and realistic action and reaction software. However, just because it utilizes these areas realistically doesn't mean it's a simulator. Every game developer attempts to improve their graphics, physics, science, and software to achieve a higher level of realism. So if that's all you require for a game to be labeled a simulator, then nearly all video games are simulators. The most accepted definition of a simulation game in the sim-world would be a non-fictional simulator that replicates real-life and real-word events and possibilities, whilst having a real-world application and use. A simulator should replicate something that's tangible, real, and could be proven in real-world application. In addition, a simulator should involve painstaking detail at it's core that usually requires it's user to undergo training of it's use and/or an intense understanding of it's simulated object and/or environment. Lastly, after hundreds of hours on a simulator, you should (theoretically) be able to operate it's real-world counterpart. Unless, it's a sandbox simulator (such as Universe Sandbox x64). In this case, you should be able to apply your new-found knowledge in a real world application to an astounding degree of accuracy. I don't think playing Medieval Engineers would teach me how to build a castle. Most of these in your list are puzzle, strategy, and some of what I would call 'soft' or 'casual' sims. That said, no offense to these games you listed. I think most would be super fun. However, they're not sims...period.
Gecko2015

+GamerZakh As stated in my comment on your 2014 sim video, I truly do appreciate your well thought-out response and debate. It's rare to see someone respond to an issue or topic, without getting offended and just responding with negative non-sense. In addition, I appreciate your factual arguments. I'll be honest, I didn't expect such a well defined argument from you - reason being, I thought you merely didn't understand what a simulator was given your choice selection...and for that, I applaud you. I now understand your choice selections were that of casual simulators in which the general gaming audience would accept as casual simulators being they replicate a soft simulation of the proposed objects and environments (with the occasional advance sim thrown in there). Perhaps you should rename your video titles of simulators to 'causal simulators'? Just a thought to avoid further confusion from future viewers. No, I don't have a source on my 'most accepted definition of a simulation game'. I merely make an observation of my experiences and your commenters of your top 10 sim videos. It appears most people and commenters in your videos widely accept that if a software holds a genre of 'simulation', it should consist of real-world application and proven laws that's based on real-life, tangible, and testable objects and environments that can be translated to real-world applications. However, as you stated - that is my opinion and observation alone and not proven (no sarcasm). I believe this proves why the debate is so tough though. Video game developers are striving to make their software more realistic by adding in more realistic graphics, physics, possibilities, and action/reaction scenarios. These use to be features only available in simulators back in the day. However, as video games progress, the line between these two will draw closer and more 'video games' will start veering over to the 'simulator' genre. Again, I respect your arguments, and I still enjoyed the video. Sub'd from me and I look forward to your future videos :)

+Tyler B - I think 'misclassify' is too strong a word compared to your other comment. Every one of these games fall into some sub-genre of simulation according to their developers, Steam, and Wikipedia. As you defined in your other comment, you would consider these mostly 'Casual Simulators', which is what I think we can agree on. As I mentioned there as well, I consider 'Simulator', 'Simulation', and 'Simulation Game' to be different things. Here, I am listing Simulation Games, so I allow them to be more 'gamey'. Generally, I look for system-building at the low end and real life application at the high end. When it comes to 'the most accepted definition of a simulation game', I'm going to have to ask for a source for that. As far as I can tell, there is no generally accepted definition. Wikipedia (yes I know this isn't a source but this is a YouTube comment =P also Wikipedia is what generally people rely on for broad understanding) separates 'Simulation' from 'Simulation Game' and calls the game category a 'diverse super-category', which I think is accurate. Even Pinball and dating sims fall under some sub-genre of simulation, though I would not include those in my list as even I don't think their case is strong enough. Other people, however, have gotten mad that I didn't include more games like those. So, I am not listing what you define as 'simulators' and people's definition of the word 'simulation' is a gradient. Their preferences are also a gradient, so it's impossible to have a 'definitive simulation list'. If you take all the games classified as 'Simulation Games', the argument would never end as for where the lines should be drawn. Yes, I am listing casual sim games with the occasional more advanced one according to your definition. No offence taken, I enjoy proper discussion. Claiming that they aren't sims...period though isn't backed up enough. I understand it's just semantics, but the devs, Steam, and Wikipedia classify them as sims, so I'm going to take that as the people generally understanding that the word simulation applies to these games. Marketing and pop culture can alter the meaning of words but for me I see your word 'simulator' being what you're defining as more hardcore simulations and my 'simulation games' being the more casual stuff, as they are primarily video games.

Anything can be a simulation but normally it as become a game that puts you into mundane situations like a life in Sims 4 or a truck driver in American Truck Simulator

i think ll kinds of game that requires input of users are called simulation, why seperate fps games to simulation games? Rts game are also simulation games, why again seperate? i dont know why game developers do this, is it to prevent massive competitions when all are classified as one type of game?
GamerZakh
GamerZakh
+kcirtap zap Developers don't decide on genres really. Genres exist as a means to classify things to help humans understand the world. It's the same as classifying an animal as a 'mammal' or 'reptile'—they are both 'animals' but being more specific helps with communication and comprehension. For game genres, it helps people find what they are looking for, though as people's preferences are like a gradient, game themes and mechanics are also so. Putting them in a certain genre gives a nice starting point to look for something that is suited to your personal preference.

There so many different type of simulation games that I just couldn't tell the exact definition of this "simulation game". City building, facility managing, flight, vehicle, life, and even war...

Great video as usual but curious as to why Dirt Rally didn't make the list, wondering if it was due to the stage of development or not considering it in the simulation category maybe? It's probably skirting the edge of the definition but I think 'Rally simulator' would fit it well, it's also one of the highest quality motorsport games I've played, certainly recommend it to anyone who may have missed it. On a side note I'll definitely be keeping an eye on The Guild 3, series has a great core idea so will be interesting to see what they do with it.

@Jeremiah B - Can't seem to reply to you directly, but Factorio was listed last year.

+Dosedmonkey - Yeah, these videos are looking forward one year, so the 2016 videos are released before 2016. Some of these games are releasing in Jan and it would be too late to start watching them then. For the most part, the next year of gaming has already been listed out with rare exceptions like Fallout 4 and Beyond Earth being announced and released within a few months.

Woah! There's a Guild 3?! Awesome top 10 games list, as usual! I always look forward to these! As to your question: With the seemingly endless supply of italic helvetica simulators, I think the term "Simulation" gained a very negative tone. Personally I split this genre into subgenres, most notably economic strategy games, base building games, driving games. I also consider games like Rimworld (base building) and Coaster World (economic sim) close to real time or turn based strategy. I also come from the days where anything that wouldn't neatly fit into any genre would get the "action-adventure" label. That said, I don't recommend you combine economic simulators with real-time and turn-based strategies on your channel and everything else into action-adventure, that's because there are usually enough RTS and TBS games to easily get a video of their own, and the noteworthy economic simulators are a good counter-balance to the few noteworthy italic helvetica simulators.

I love me some Euro Truck Simulator... Now i will have American Truck Sim as well... Hope i have enough time for both... As for Project Cars, they have been a lot of shady things with this developer for quite a while now. Goal in the first kickstarter was a WiiU version. They have canceled it, basically saying "Get another console and play it there". On top of the performance issues, it's an EXCESSIVE example of an Nvidia game, other examples being Arkham Knight and AC Unity. The game runs like crap on any other GPU than Nvidia 900 series. I would just stay away from those guyz..

+Michael Nwankwu I understand the hype for the yearly sports games but because they release every year you don't really need me to list it out here. Otherwise, every year the simulation category could be filled with Football Manager, FIFA, Madden, MLB, PGA, etc. I'm also not a sports expert, so I don't feel like I should make a 'Sports' list.

Plus all the 'space sims' are going into the Space category.
