    The dark side of Amish SimCity

    Many Cyburbanites played Amish SimCity when they were young. Often, their fascination with the built environment as a child led to their studies and/or careers in urban planning.

    Here's an example of an Amish SimCity by someone who, if they became a city planner instead, would have changed the course of human events for decades to come.
    Growth for growth's sake is the ideology of the cancer cell. -- Edward Abbey

    I did Lego SimCity. I had thousands and thousands of Lego’s and a recroom dedicated to them, so they would never have to be put away. My dad painted rivers and lakes on plywood and then my brother and I would compete with our cities. We had tallest building contests, businesses and industry, money, spy satellites, wars, and the whole shebang.

    We never built anything from the directions. We would start off with the correct building, but quickly customize it.

    That was my SimCity.
