"I haven't played SimCity since the very first SimCity on the Amiga, which I was never very good at. I remember wondering why no one wanted to live in the nice houses I built next to the nuclear power station. It made sense to me, it would mean the electricity wouldn't have to travel so far, and as such would be less tired and more efficient. I also had difficulty grasping the notion that further away buildings had to be connected to the power station by wires. I just assumed the little flashing lightning bolt icon meant that the inhabitants inside were listening to AC/DC."
