Games come, and games go. After a time, we lose interest.
I've recently been reading up on the latest updates coming to SimCity—for example, in this video, Maxis' Guillaume Pierre demonstrates the new raise/lower roads feature coming in the latest pending game update, Update 7. Where are you all at with this game? I thought I'd do a reader poll:
If you've bailed, what would it take to get you back? Personally speaking, if they doubled city size in addition to all the other updates they've added, I'd give it another crack. Until then, there's Civ V to be played.
