|Supreme Ruler: Cold War-FLT | 551 Mb|
you’ve ever wanted to know if there was a distinction between simulation and game, Supreme Ruler is the perfect example. This hugely in-depth game lets you play through the Cold War (for our younger readers, that was the 50 years following 1949 of angry nonsense between two totalitarian ideologies equally malevolent towards the individual’s happiness) from the viewpoint of any country in the world. Even Andorra.
The key trait of Supreme Ruler is illustrated by the fact that it’s in-depth enough to let you build individual factories in individual towns, including Croydon, a large town near London. It’s immediately apparent that there is no way any individual human mind can hope to gather all the information necessary to make the perfect decision in this situation. That’s fair – Civ has that limitation too.
However, it’s also apparent that the game shares Fate of the World’s informational obfuscation so that you can’t even tell if you’re making a decision that’s even vaguely near the correct decision; you actually might be better off acting randomly in this situation, the depth of your ignorance of the game’s informational structures is so huge. That’s not to say this is a bad simulation; it’s amazingly comprehensive and strives to model economies, societal movements, terrain, resources, and so forth, so perfectly that it could be the nearest to a good total simulation of the world’s economy that’s publicly available; it’s just that this might not lead to it being a good game.
