    Bear in mind I haven't played Banished, but... don't take this wild generalisation the wrong way, but after all the posts I've read on this forum you do not strike me as the kind of person who'd be...

    The city isn't in the same league as GTA, but it's still a lot of fun - you may want to read this article when you're done. The story doesn't always hold up, to put it mildly, and the detective work...
