While most early VideoGames fit into some category of "simulation" (flying games are Flight Simulators, racing games are Car Simulators -- heck, even ''VideoGame/{{Pong}}'' was basically a virtual simulation of table tennis), the term "Simulation Game" usually refers to a genre of programs for which the term "game" is really a misnomer: a SimulationGame is more of a "toy" (by the definitions used by those who study such things academically) than a "game", more akin to an Erector set than to a chess set.

But the game which really brought the modern SimulationGame into its own was Maxis's ''[=SimCity=]''. In this game, the player took the role of mayor, and was in charge of building a city. Among the Mayoral duties were zoning areas for commercial, residential or industrial use, building public utilities, and [[BreadEggsMilkSquick rebuilding after Godzilla attacks]].
