The Simulation tag refers to a genre of video games that aim to simulate real-world activities, environments, or experiences. These games strive to provide players with an immersive and realistic depiction of a particular subject matter.

In simulation games, players typically take on the role of someone who manages or controls various aspects of a simulated world or scenario. The level of detail and realism can vary depending on the game's focus and scope. Simulation games often require strategic thinking, planning, decision-making, and sometimes resource management.

Some common characteristics of simulation games include:

  • Realism Simulation games prioritize realism by incorporating authentic physics, mechanics, graphics/sound design, and simulations of real-world systems or behaviors. This attention to detail enhances the immersive experience for players.
  • Action replication Simulation games aim to replicate the actions involved in specific activities. For example, flight simulators simulate piloting aircraft with accurate controls and instruments.
  • Lifelike scenarios Many simulation games allow players to explore aspects of life they may not have access to otherwise. This can range from managing a farm in agricultural simulations like Stardew Valley, operating hospitals in medical simulators like Two Point Hospital, or managing cities in urban planning simulations like the Cities: Skylines.
  • Sandbox gameplay Simulations often feature open-ended gameplay that allows players freedom in how they approach challenges or objectives. These sandbox-style elements let individuals experiment and explore different strategies and outcomes within the simulated environment.

Examples of popular simulation games include:

  • The Sims series This well-known franchise lets players simulate and control the daily lives of virtual people, also known as "Sims." Players can guide their Sims through everyday tasks, relationships, careers, and personal aspirations.
  • Microsoft Flight Simulator A highly realistic flight simulator that allows players to experience the intricacies of flying various aircraft in stunning detail. It replicates real-world weather conditions, landscapes, and airports from around the globe.
  • Farming Simulator series These games let players experience the challenges and rewards of managing a modern farming operation. From tending crops to caring for livestock and operating machinery, these simulations provide an immersive virtual farming experience.
