SimCity 3000 and Mathematica
In the beginning there was Tetris. Tetris seemed to have taken over every Macintosh in
the building by sometime in late 1987. About that time, a fellow addict brought
in a virtual city planning program, created by Will Wright, entitled SimCity.
This wasn't just a game in the traditional sense, it was one of the first true
"system simulator" programs to ever exist on the personal computer.
The primary thing I remembered about my introduction to it was my friend
unleashing the wrath of Godzilla upon a small, barely thriving metropolis that
he had created.
