Oh, simulator games, how you can sometimes baffle me for you appeal, allowing people to do some theoretically cool things but then often getting bogged down in drudgery and minutia. If there were a poster child contest for this syndrome House Flipper would be near the front of the line. Yeah, as you build up your construction empire you’ll get more opportunities to do cooler things but the road to success involves a lot of crap work, picking up garbage, cleaning up messes, and slowly pressing the right buttons to install replacement equipment. Sure, there’s an element of vegging out and enjoying yourself with the small details if that’s your bag, but even among its peers this just feels clunky and unrewarding.
