I personally like strategy games, business simulation games, city-building games, etc. I started them to play at a fairly young age, around when I was 11 y.o. or something. This was the time of Windows98. I also remember having Windows95 on the family computer back in the days... Anyhow, FoxNews went completely bonkers on Stimulation Games, in this case SimCitySocities: [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oq_R4LrzHb4"]FoxNews On SCS[/ame] I perfectly understand now why American is going up in flames -- people watch this crap? They watch the channel that airs that?! Listen y'all -- business simulation games, strategy games, city-building games, etc. should be handed out-free sort of speak to children. Why? You learn a lot because of them: balancing a budget, making responsable desicions, etc. I like playing Railroad Tycoon II back in the day -- because of it, I learned -- when I was about 11-12 y.o. -- whar "shares" were, how they worked, what a dividend is, etc. And games like e.g. SimCity -- you indeed can opt for "liberal" policies like capping pollution, taxing the companies that pollute more, adopt eco-friendly stuff that leads to expanding high-tech industry, etc. Way better than all those crazy racing and shoot-everything-to-pieces games.
