Simulation games create a whole new world to explore, one that is virtually realistic. They represent a virtual environment, with virtual characters having interesting and life-like interactions between the various components of a virtual world. The graphics and sounds are often amazingly close to reality. Everything seems real, from the weather conditions over the Pacific in air combat games to the geography of lands in strategy games.
They are a new, higher pedestal of gaming, often combining elements of skill, chance and strategy, (like for a civilization building game), wherein real as well as fictional worlds may be simulated and often you see the world through the eyes of a fictitious character.
There is a whole colorful range of simulation games to pick from. Some games allow you to act as a creator and manage a world, like the Sim City series that include virtual city planning and building with varied levels of infrastructure. Another is the Tycoon games, which give you the opportunity to own, build, manage and upgrade your own theme park, restaurant, or even a zoo. Perhaps the most popular simulation games are the driving and racing games, such as Motoracer, Need for Speed, and Monster Madness. Also, providing an adrenalin rush are the Air Combat Flight Games, where you can pick your mission, and be equipped with a supply of ammunition to carry it out. Other fighters may also be simulated to give the game a further realistic touch. In a few of the flight simulator games, you could look into are Microsoft Combat Flight Sim 3, Lock on: Modern Air Combat, Flight Deck 2, Falcon 4.0, and Strike Fighters, Project 1.
Life games are like living in a game, only in the skin of your fictitious character that interacts with the different components of the virtual world. Adventure games like Tomb Raider, Role Play and Dating Games to name a few, are popular, and reside at top of the gaming entertainment charts.
Simulation games offer a virtual environment that allows players to discover, create, destroy, improvise, upgrade, and imagine.
