I picked up SimCity 4 Deluxe for $5 the other day. What a bargain! This is a really cool and deep game. Of course I started out with a city called “Tinatown”.
The Road Rage expansion is cool too, you can drive around in your city on a few various missions, though they are a little repetitive.
I found and installed a mod/plugin called NAM that adds a ton of cool traffic and road options that make the game much more intelligent. There are a whole bunch of highway and overpass options I haven’t even glanced at yet.
