Is ‘SimCity’ Homelessness a Bug or a Feature?

January 16th, 2015 § 1 comment

The players of the latest SimCity are running into a very challenging and ultimately existential problem; homelessness is proving very difficult to eradicate.

For Bittanti, it’s impossible not to see the connections between the homeless problem in the Bay Area and the way it’s portrayed in SimCity.

“That is, can we fix homelessness in SimCity, or because we haven’t fixed homelessness as a problem in real life, therefore we are bound to lose?” Bittanti asked. “Is SimCity a reflection of what’s happening in reality, and therefore is very realistic, or is it a programming issue?”
