Euro Truck Simulator 2
Euro Truck 2 let’s you travel across Europe as king of the road, a trucker who delivers important cargo across impressive distances! With dozens of cities to explore from the UK, Belgium, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Poland, and many more. This game is as good as it gets when it comes to truck simulation/driving. Euro Truck Simulator 2 is one of the highest rated games ever released for a lot of reasons, one of the being the graphics and gameplay. Every turn you make or indicator you forget to turn on can lead you to more than just a traffic ticket or a dead end. The game community is large and active so you can browse plenty of mods included new or classic trucks you want to drive submitted by fellow gamers. We also have screenshots of Euro Truck 2 for you to checkout.
Cities: Skylines is a modern take on the classic city building simulation. The game introduces new game play elements to realize the thrill and hardships of creating and maintaining a real city whilst expanding on some well-established tropes of the city building experience. This game had massive hype before it was released and it didn’t disappoint. No wonder why it continues to receive positive reviews from hardcore gamers and beginners to city management games. I love this game and the graphics are just fantastic, plus the online community is huge so you can find plenty of mods to spice up the game.
Railway Empire lets you create an elaborate and wide granting rail network, purchase over 40 different trains modeled in extraordinary detail, and buy or build railway stations, maintenance buildings, factories and tourist attractions to keep your travel network ahead of the competition. This game is better than how we have described it, trust me on that. It is extremely fun and it has almost too many things to do that will keep you busy and wondering what other little things can you notice in this game. If you are interested or love simulation games especially dealing with the transportation industry, this game is for you. We also have more Railway Empire screenshots for you to check out.
