Will You Be A Good Mayor?
I've been playing the beta, and SimCity is fun, and a lot of it. Building up a sprawling metropolis from a humble little burb has never been as enjoyable. After a short tutorial, you're presented with an open plain, surrounded by boundaries and left to construct your city. Here is where my unrestricted enjoyment of this new SimCity began.
There is no "best" way to do things in SimCity. The only way things get better is if you, as the mayor of your city, make them better. You're responsible for water, power, and even the zoning of all buildings which will eventually be built in your plot of land. While it's easy to develop something of a god complex with the game, messing with the lives of your citizens, I found more satisfaction in the challenge of ensuring my citizens were happy.
Not everything is self-explanatory, and for the longest time, I didn't quite comprehend the correlation between land values and building qualities. Of course, now that I understand, I realize that it makes sense. This is where SimCity seems to shine the most: everything makes a lot of sense when you get right down to it. It just takes dedication.
