SimCity 3000, member of the successful Maxis’ SimCity franchise turns 18th today, having been released in 1999.
He’s like the unlucky sibling in the SimCity family: there’s SimCity, born in 1989, the old and wise brother, there’s SimCity 2000, which came out in 1994, younger and more appealing and then there’s SimCity 4, the youngest and the smartest, released in 2003. SimCity 3000 stands halfway, is almost like SimCity 4 but doens’t have the success of SimCity 2000. However it’s a great game, with wonderful graphics and was a huge improvement from the acclaimed predecessor.
So let’s give a bit of prestige also to him and let’s celebrate!
