Torn between my love for SimCity, and my hate for the current EA.

Will probably not buy, as much as it pains me to say it.

I think Maxis have learned their lesson with Spore, Darkspore and Societies (I know, not Maxis but lesson still learned) on the negative side and also Sims 3 on the positive side.

My hope is they now know what we want and what works. I also think they must have been following the user base of Sim City 4 and what they've done with regard to customization. They'd be insane not to.

I have confidence SimCity V will be a return to the depth and level of customization available in SimCity 4 with the added features of an online sharing community (something that worked from Spore).

The Sims Studio spun off from Maxis a while ago... No lessons there, Facebook integration errywhere.

Yes! I cannot wait. My inner urban planner has been waiting for a new Sim City for a while.

I just hope they don't dumb down the gameplay. If anything I want more complexity.

Seriously though, I am pretty excited. Hopefully this is an actual simulation, and not dumbed down for consoles. Gah, only 30% done or whatever that percent was does not make me happy, but I am nonetheless excited! I have been wanting a new sim city for years... Sim City still isn't cutting it for me as far as the performance on the game is still crummy even on a newer pc/mac (yes, I have it on both... :\ ), and Rush Hour seemed like it was "rushed" and could have used some more time in the oven.

Eh, I am not sure where I stand... I still have Sim City 3000 installed just so I can build cities listening to that soundtrack. Yeah, I remember playing that game at the tail end of my highschool career, starting in at like 10pm when I would get home from work, playing then until like 3:30am (not really by choice, just never looking at the clock again once I sat down).

Well... in SC2000 you can kind of do that manually and help keep your traffic down!

I'd definitely buy a Wii-U version as well. The tablet could work really well with it.

Awesome news. I just hope they learn from 4 and have the game be just as modable, that's what really made 5 shine.

I'm ultra excited that there's a new Sim City on the horizon. I'm hoping this isn't simply an obvious visual upgrade on Sim City 4 and that they've added in more features of modern cities, including mixed use residential/commercial and bike lanes.

Wishful thinking. EA is going to put their grubby paws on it, lock away portions to resell later on as DLC.

We all know it's going to happen, I just don't think anyone has said it yet.

A modable game would go against their idea of DLC.
