Simulation games are games which mimic real-life scenarios and bring them forward as games. These games do not necessarily need to be high-end with realistic graphics. The concept is that they should be based on real-life situations.
As much as Xbox is famous for its simulation games collection, most of us neither own the console nor are much into high-end gaming. Thus, we have compiled a list of games which could be downloaded and played on any PC with a decent configuration.
Best simulation games available for PC
Perfect for kids, Township involves building farms and cities. The game involves harvesting crops, selling them, making a profit, and using the same to build your town. You would have to construct civil amenities like cinemas, restaurants, and other building which would be needed by the community. You could also build your own zoo and collect animals for the same. This game is available on the Microsoft Store here.
2] Town City - Village Building Sim Paradise
The Town City game has a concept to Township - building towns and cities. However, the difference is that it needs somewhat more mature players. The game has levels, rewards, a leadership board, etc. The game is less about designing and constructing your own buildings (unlike Township) and more about unlocking pre-build constructions. The best part is you do not need an internet collection to play this game, unlike most other games in this list. If you like it, check it on the Microsoft Store.
3] Counter Critical Strike
This replica of Counter-Strike has nothing to do with the original game, except that the developers have copied the same concept. Counter Critical Strike is a single-player, first-person shooter game. The maps are different from that of the original game, however, based on a similar concept. You could choose to be either a terrorist or a counter-terrorist. The game could be downloaded from here.
4] Redboy and Bluegirl: Temple Maze
This game has a little bit of fun and a little bit of romance in it. The two characters in the game are Fire Boy and Water Girl. They team up to conquer the Ice Temple. Both of them have different abilities; for example, the fire boy can slide through surfaces, but can't climb - Vice-Versa for water girl. This game is perfect for couples who wish to learn to work as a team. The game is available on Microsoft Store here.
5] Disney Magic Kingdoms
Build Your Own Magical Park: If you like Disney characters, this would be the game of your life. The game allows you to create your own Disney kingdom and play around with Disney characters. You can assign your characters whatever role you prefer. Disney Magic Kingdoms: Build Your Own Magical Park has almost every Disney character you could think of. The game is available on Microsoft Store for free. However, disabling ads might cost something.
6] Tank Force: 3D Tank Games
Perhaps my favorite free game, Tank Force is a pretty satisfying game where you would have to target and shoot tanks. The graphics are realistic, and you can play it with other players online. The target is to annihilate all your enemies and capture the base. You can take several tanks and battle through the levels to achieve what you want. The environments are destruction friendly and impressively designed. You can download the game from the Microsoft Store here.
7] Surgery Master: Operate Now
If you ever fantasized being a doctor but dropped the idea for whatever reason, this game is all you need to experience your forgotten dream. The game involves bringing celebrity patients to a hospital in an ambulance and performing surgeries on them. The missions are endless, though it has levels which make the game enjoyable. Bring out the surgeon in you with this game which is available on the Microsoft Store.
8] Magic Hair Salon
One of those typical Hair Salon games, Magic Hair Salon, involves selecting your model, cutting and coloring her hair. You can use color dyes and scissors, cut, curl, or straighten the hair. As you progress through the levels, the game allows you to unpack new tools. The game uses a pseudo-currency called mini-coins. They are earned as you win across the levels. The game could be downloaded from the Microsoft Store here.
9] World of Tennis: Roaring '20s
While Tennis still has its fan base, it was a different story in the 1920s which they call the golden era of tennis. Download the game to transport yourself to the era of ladies and gentlemen. The game is a little different. Thus the game starts at zero levels and it keeps getting tougher as you progress through the game. It has seven characters to be used as players.
10] City Island 4 - Sim Town Tycoon
Expand the Skyline: While another of those town and city building games, City Island 4 - Sim Town Tycoon involves bettering the skyline instead of mere community buildings. You could use the day and night mode to change the feel of the game. It is available on the Microsoft Store.
I love some of these games. Let me know your favorite in the comments.
