Simulation Games

Definition: Games which try to accurately depict real world situations, physics, and events as accurately as possible. There are several varieties of simulation games, but are probably only three that are very well known, specifically Racing Simulators, Flight Simulators, and 'Sim' type games that emulate environmental variable into a game, such as the widely popular 'The Sims' series of games.

Also Known As: Racing Simulators, Flight Simulators, Sims.

Alternate Spellings: Sims

Examples: Forza Motorsport and Gran Turismo are both considered racing sims (or racing simulators) because they employ the closest physics and effects that can be compared to real world racing, allowing the player to adjust almost limitless numbers of options to obtain the desired affect.
