The Latest and Greatest City Building Games

City builders are their own class of games.  They can be ultra-realistic from the traffic patterns and the people to the economy and the trade.  City builders can also take on a more fantastical note by being set in the distant past, future, or some world no one even knows. 

Over the past several years, many city builder games have released and they are all unique in their own way.  Whatever you are looking for in a city builder, there is a game for you.  I promise you that.

So let’s get started with the list, yeah?

11. Cities: Skylines (2015) by Paradox Interactive

Cities: Skylines release trailer on YouTube.

Skylines goes to great lengths to make the city building experience more realistic than most.  Everything from water flow—something other games tend to neglect—to economic zoning, the developers built Skylines for the purposes of simulating a very realistic city.  The developers did their best to make managing a city in Skylines to be more fun than managing a city in real life.

You don’t necessarily have to make the most beautiful city, you can sit there and crunch numbers all day long if you want to.  The goal is to create the biggest, most optimal city you can.  However, you can decide to create a smaller farm town and you’ll still win if you make it optimal. 

Cities: Skylines has options, which makes it a great contender in this list.
