Yes, we know, last week we posted a list of the 111 best gaming memes as a finale to our weekly meme articles. But then... SimCity happened. And seriously, how could we resist? If you've been following SimCity's launch, then you're likely aware that owners are fuming over their inability to play thanks to its always-on DRM requirement and EA's overloaded servers. After a few days of silence EA finally came clean about the problems and promised SimCity buyers a free game later this month, but this comes after days of refusing refunds and pretending like the problem wasn't as wide-spread as it was.

We can't solve your SimCity woes, but we can help you kill some time while you wait for that server to connect. Introducing our gallery of SimCity jokes, memes, and other images from the botched launch (as recruited from the likes of memegenerator, Reddit (r/SimCity), quickmeme, etc...).
