With all the things the game does wrong, I find it hilarious that they spent the time to allow vehicles to sink

European Bus Simulator seems like a worthy spiritual successor to Street Cleaning Simulator.

On behalf of Germany, I'd like to apologise. We try to prevent these "sims" from escaping, but one or two will inevitably make it over the fence.

 

A "Fahrerkarte" is a ID card for drivers of commercial vehicles by the way. Really sloppy work that they didn't both translating it.

That was quite the bus ride, complete with all the chaos of the real experience (minus maybe the part where the bus was driving itself).  I'm curious how large the instruction manual for European Bus Simulator is now, getting that bus up and running looked like more of a struggle than completing most puzzle games.

I love this show, Danny you're awesome and you and Johnny do bounce some good comedy off each other too.

 

Thomas was Alone looks like great fun.

Yo Danny, you think gamespot can make an app that makes randomly generated commentary starring you and Johnny while playing games? That would be AMAZING! With you two, I can play ET or Superman 64 and STILL have fun!

 @jamyskis Is there anything NOT sloppy about this and the sibling games? I have no idea why they have their fanbase (I'm german), they just fake realism by making everything tedious and annoying and as soon as something moves, everything goes to hell because the underlying systems are just garbage.

Warlord_Irochi

 @trollkind True and true; I can understand we have a great fanbase for similators here but... THIS?? We have things like "Anno 2070" or "The Settlers" and people rather get this??

 

And a lot more tittles in this line out there that Americans should be thankful that they will provably never see then (believe me, you are glad most of this games do not make it to NA)

 @jamyskis I don't have anything against simulators in general, DCS: A-10C is a good example of them done right.
