Take Me Down to the New SimCity Where the Buildings Are 3-D and the Llamas Are Pretty

Oh, you kids with your World of Warcrafts and Minecrafts and what-not. When I was a wee lad — well, at least a pimply-faced teen — I spent all my hours making the world’s greatest metropolis in SimCity, so I’m very excited to know that Maxis is finally making a proper sequel in 2013. Kotaku says the new game will be full 3-D, the buildings will be fully customizable, and you can talk to individual Sims — but you don’t have to keep those Sims from pissing their pants while simultaneously setting themselves on fire, which is nice. Most importantly, there will apparently be curved roads. HOLY SHIT, PEOPLE. IT IS TRULY THE 21ST CENTURY.
