I’m playing Sim City 4, working on a small town and trying to create a close aproximation of the type of area where I live: A modest town with rural areas and some smallish farms about. Here is the main part of town:
Click for a view of the whole city, including the power supply.
All of that, plus a housing plan, plus a few farms and an industrial sector, are all supported by two wind turbines. Yeah right. This is a town of almost a thousand people, and still they are only using about 50% of the total output of these turbines.
Sim City 4 is billed as a “simulation” game, but clearly it has more in common with Neverwinter Nights and World of Warcraft. You know: fantasy games.
The plot of this game isn't just dumb, it's actively hostile to the player. This game hates you and thinks you are stupid.
Let's ruin everyone's fun by listing all the ways in which zombies can't work, couldn't happen, and don't make sense.

Two minutes of fun at the expense of a badly-run theme park.
