I don't know how many fans of Simcity there are here... but I for one, still play Simcity 4 and cities XL on a daily basis.

I was just thinking about wanting to play the classic sim city, cool (someone must be reading my thoughts)
here's an article
Simcity 5 Confirmed: Maxis Taking Social and Environmental Bent to Classic Franchise
The rumors are true: as the internet has been speculating for weeks now, Maxis is in fact building Simcity 5, and it’s due out in 2013.
The game will be worlds different from the Simcity 4000. Maxis Senior VP Lucy Bradshaw wants to make one thing absolutely clear.
“We are adding curvy roads,” she says. “That’s really important.”
There are other changes coming as well. For the first time in the Simcity franchise, the world will no longer be confined to the borders of your own individual city.
“We’re building a simulation that really captures the world that we live in today,” says Bradshaw. “We’re talking about a Simcity where the resources are finite. Where you’re gong to be struggling with some of the same decisions that people are struggling with today.”
Online and social elements where if you put a lot of polluting power plants near your borders, your friends might start to get some smoke rolling into their suburbs. You might even start to contribute to global CO2 levels.
Maxis announced the game as part of the Game Developer’s Conference “Games For Change” track, and it’s planning for the new Simcity to be able to allow players to imagine the world around them in different ways. Speakers at the announcement included Davis Guggenheim, director of “An Inconvenient Truth,” Scott Harrison, President and Founder of Charity;Water and Biz Stone, co-founder of Twitter.
For Guggenheim, the stories inherent in games and in documentaries helps people see social problems through new eyes.
“When you play SimCity, you cannot avoid the disconnect. You build a coal-powered plant,” says Guggenheim. “You will feel the consequences in a big way.”
But Simcity isn’t going to become some kind of deadly serious social malady simulator. It’s Maxis.
“You never know when a giant lizard might trundle around the corner and kick some buildings down.”
I remember back in the day spending hours and hours on older sim games like SimCity 2000 and Rollercoaster Tycoon 1 and 2. Sometimes I wonder if newer sim games are just too complicated. Don't get me wrong SimCity 3000 and 4 aren't difficult games but I rather see a more minimalistic approach to a sim game and maybe start adding cool stuff with DLC.
I put soooo much time into Simcity 1. And quite heavy into 2000 and 3000 but they started getting complicated and a little less fun.
I would love to say I want to play the new one, but I don't have the time it takes to put into it, nor the patience to build it, especially with how many layers I expect there to be.
And agreed, it was tough to play without $ cheats. I hated waiting to do anything so Id always run the game on super fast speed, then slow it down to build and deal with problems, then fast again, and on and on.
