The 25 Best Simulation Games Ever Made

Never in the field of human conflict...

Featured post

Postscript

At times during the preparation of this list I felt like I was being asked to sort siblings or drown kittens. So many great sims ended up on the wrong side of my arbitrary Checkpoint Charlie that I can’t resist deepening the depth of field for the following run-down. If your favourite sim still isn’t present then either you’re a person of dubious tastes (highly unlikely considering you’ve found your way to Castle Shotgun) or I’ve had a senior moment and completely forgotten about one of this genre’s hearteningly plentiful corkers. Feel free to spotlight any gaffs in the usual way – smoke grenade, parachute flare, dirty protest or plain old comment.

The eagle-eyed amongst you will have noticed that a couple of titles in my list previously featured in another ‘Bestest Best’ feature. While there’s nothing in the RPS rulebook that forbids overlaps, myself and Mr. Meer will be meeting on Primrose Hill at dawn tomorrow (Alec’s second: Jim. My second: Adam) to establish once-and-for-all whether Rising Storm and ARMA are manshoots or soldier sims.
