Simulation games to stimulate your brain

Videogames are about unearthing secrets in atypical virtual worlds. Simulation games on the other hand, hands the rule book over to the player, asks them to build the world, customise it to their heart's content and shape its narrative. By doing so, simulation games take worldly concepts, flesh them out into a video game format and let players learn about the game-world, and the world surrounding them. Here’s a couple of titles that do just that.

For those curious about the nightmarish logistics of maintaining a transport company, this game will deliver. In-game, you start around 1850 as a rail service and as time progresses, you can start to expand roadway, maintain water supplies and air quality, while building up your huge network of trucks, trains, boats and planes to become the biggest transport tycoon of the 21st century.
