Sim City vs Cities: Skylines Skylines has the clearly superior mechanics set, Sim City has charm pouring out its ears. One approaches citybuilding as interacting with a complex system- achieving balance and efficiency while obtaining growth. The other seems to think of cities as a box of legos- something to play with and express yourself through. Is there one that is more important/fundamental? How can you coat your mechanics in charm? If you were to make skylines more charming, what would be the most important thing you could change/add? Same thing, but with sim city and mechanical depth.
