Let’s count simulation games: Sim 2 Glamour Life Stuff, Sims 2, Sim City and then also Civilization and Age of Empires III (sort of). Half of the top selling games are one way or another related to simulation or tycoon – or at least have those features in them. WoW could be also said to carry this type of elements in it. I wouldn’t be surprised to hear that Kudos would be selling well.
