Most of us think of video games as a break from work, an escape to situations and things we wouldn’t be able to do in real life. Yet there are many games that simulate real-world jobs of all sorts. So what’s it like when you ARE a city planner and you PLAY city builders in your spare time too? How does that person approach things? What happens if/when they…make a mistake? What mods do they use? You can find out all of that by watching A City Planner Plays, a YouTuber/gamer who started out playing Sim City on the Super Nintendo and now does this stuff IRL.
The video embedded below is a good place to start—a build in Cities Skylines from scratch without DLC or mods. But the channel also houses guides on using mods and a collaborative build with 4 other creators that’s also worth a look.
