In celebration of what will hopefully be the start of a solid Sonic comeback, let’s take a look at some of his better appearances.…

The Top Ten City Building Games

There’s nothing quite like the satisfaction that comes with building your own tiny village, town or city, watching it grow and seeing your inhabitants thrive. Or you could watch them suffer through devastating natural disasters as you panic and desperately press buttons to make it go away… Either way, it’s certainly entertaining.
