SimCity is probably one of the most popular PC games ever created. For those of you who have never played it (your loss by the way) you design and manage a city. You can make it pretty easy by just building buildings, roads and power plants to more complex activities such as managing the water supply, designing highways and public transportation and helping to from disasters in the city. It was the first true sandbox game I ever played and loved it. SimCity is now owned by Electronic Arts (EA) and they are planning on creating an online educational community centered around the soon to be released SimCityEDU. The game will focus on supporting STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) subjects. Either way, it should be pretty awesome. I, for one, am very intrigued.
