grognard or warganer, I also love computer and video games.
They are one of the things I do as part of my self care regimen, and it also satisfies my inner blerd.
What's a blerd you ask? Blerd is a term I picked up (and I like) from my homegirl Kandice Webber to describe a Black nerd.
One of the computer games I fell in love with back in the 90's was Sim City. I loved it so much I bought Sim City 2000, Sim City 3000 and Sim City 2013 because I absolutely love the city simulator games. Why don't I own Sim City 4? Because by the time I was able to buy it, Sim City 2013 was out.
Then I discovered Cities Skylines.
It also wasn't as realistic as Cities Skylines is where you can get granular about everything from traffic to city governance policies
One of the things I also love is that when I'm playing this game, I'm so focused on concentrating on what I need to do to build the city and clean up any problems that arise while doing so, I'll look at the wall clock next to my computer desk and realize that a few hours had elapsed since I started that game session.
Now if I could download some real world buildings and Houston ones into my game, I'd be a happy camper.
