ObviousLurker: I'm tempted to get Skylines, is the hype all its cracked up to be?
I believe it is indeed worth it. Cities Skylines is the best city building game in the last decade, maybe the best of all time! Great traffic management system and AI, beautiful graphics, wide range of roads to use, and large cities too. It runs really well after over 100,000 population without DLC.
The steam workshop is incredible, you can get custom assets and mods which are all creative.
Cities Skylines definitely suceeds in being the game the atrocious Simcity 2013 should have been. Also it is very affordable!
