    Well, to be fair, simulation games are incredibly popular in Europe, particularly Germany. So, I guess there are some people out there who really do want to work the London Underground or be a garbage man. NerdCubed (Who I think you were referencing in the Farm Simulator slide) plays a lot of simulation games, and he's been surprised by how a couple were actually good games that he regularly plays and enjoys, like Euro Truck Simulator 2 and OMSI Bus Simulator. The games are extremely detailed and over all well-done, so it would make sense that some people would enjoy playing them. Simulation games just got popular with Let's Players because they did funny things and could make something that looks very mundane and boring to be super hilarious. I mean, any normal person probably wouldn't go out of their way to buy a simulation game to mess around in themselves, but hey, this guy is doing tractor jousting with Farm Simulator on YouTube, I MUST WATCH THIS!

    Looks at Super Monkey Ball slide. And says, "Holy Magnetic Asian Crap!" (No offence)

    That's actually how I came up with the idea for the article! Shame it wasn't a video game, but great example nonetheless.

    So basically, Farming Simulator has become the DeFacto hipster game? Huh. Also, that whole idea about using minecraft by the UN as a Urban planning tool is kinda awesome. Let's hope it actually prospers ^^

    Really enjoyed this article. Well-researched, well-written, occassionally quite funny too. Well done.

    Next time I'm feeling nervous before an operation, I'm just going to pretend that my surgeon is also fresh off a 6 minute Monkey Ball stint and that everything is going to be okay. Oh who am I kidding, I think I'd have a panic attack lawls.
