Simulation games have started to become quite popular when it comes to gaming especially for PC and Steam users, there's been games in the past like Flight Simulator, Train Simulator 2013 and of course Street Cleaning Simulator which got a 1.5/10 on GameSpot but lots of gamers and users on GameSpot have claimed that this game has been the best game of 2011.
Recently just been released this month is Goat Simulator which has already started to become a hit game despite the low scores and reviews, but there's a lot of internet trolls and gaming trolls would just spam images and videos and after videos of their gameplay on Youtube. A few of my friends I know have been mentioning this game to me and saying how funny and humorous and watching some gameplay footage convincing me to play this myself but after watching some videos some of its gameplay reminded of another game I know which was PAIN (2008) which sort of had the same gameplay where you are just causing more pain to yourself you've got a giant slingshot and you fly and crash into almost anything and I mean anything an old woman, a high building or a gas tank that can blow up. There are other levels there's just one level in the entire game.
Goat Simulator is an open-ended third-person perspective game in which the player controls a goat. Free to explore the game's world, a suburban semi-urban setting, as a goat, and jump, run, bash things, and lick objects, which attaches the goat's tongue to the object and lets the player drag the object around until they let go. It does have some Tony Hawk elements but I still think it reminds me of PAIN. However the real reason why I want to post a blog on Simulation games is that yet another Animal-Simulator game maybe in the works if they get more funding already People donated $100,571 to pay for a game about being a bear for a Kickstarter it's already become quite a hit if more and more money is being donated however if this game does get an official release there will be a lot of bear-puns on this both good ones and bad ones.
And just recently another Simulation was just mentioned a few days ago from Kotaku on Drowning Simulator you play as a French person who falls off a boat. And no matter how good a swimmer he you are, or how fast you think you are, eventually you will run out of energy, you will drown, and you will die. It's a dark, harrowing experience and a little depressing but if more and more games are released based on either Animals, Life or Death Experience or even Terrible mods thanks to certain software and engines it might annoy quite a few gamers and I don't think Steam users would be too happy if they keep seeing Simulator games online at silly prices.
Do you think Simulator games will become a thing in the past or do you think they will become popular? Or what would you want to see in a Simulator game? Let us know in the comments-
