Representatives of the game simulation genre are rightfully considered difficult to learn and often extremely beginner-unfriendly games. In other words, it is a "party for friends", but it is never too late to become one of its participants, because complex simulation often hides interesting and sometimes even unique gameplay that can captivate for tens of hours. The closest example is the phenomenally beautiful Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020, but if you want to learn about other decent products in the genre as well, we suggest checking out our top 10 best simulators on PC.
10. Railway Empire
Let's face it, many of us used to play with toy trains as children, laying a railroad through our own room. It was a good time, so what about a little trip back to your childhood, but this time raising the stakes significantly with the need to build a railroad along the endless prairies and forests of North America? Railway Empire was created for this very purpose and places the burden of the owner of a railway empire on the player's shoulders.
It is important to note that Railway Empire is not just a rich simulator with over 40 models of trains, realistic physics of train behavior and the ability to match employees with the right personality types. The game from Gaming Minds Studios is also a great opportunity to immerse yourself in the historical context of developing America. The storyline campaign is divided into 5 scenarios, taking place from 1830 to 1930, which is reflected in the tasks and conditions that Railway Empire sets for the player.
9. Thief Simulator
The authors of Thief Simulator decided to continue the work of the cult Thief series and invite the player to experience the everyday life of crime. To be torn apart, the player is given a whole area with people living on their own schedule and a variety of houses: from seedy garages to wealthy estates, which can be accessed in several ways. In other words, at the heart of the Thief Simulator gameplay concept is a real sandbox, where we reconnoiter the situation, choose a victim and go to a criminal case.
A novice thief can use both the neat tools of the burglar and the pry bar to get into the house, because the choice of special means to achieve the goal is always at the mercy of the player. Brute force or sleight of hand with cutting holes in glass and reprogramming security systems - any means are good in the work of a burglar, if he managed to get hold of the loot, not fall into the hands of the police and sell the goods on the black market.
