  •  SC2 has components of realism (0+ / 0-)

    It wasn't designed to be a full-fledged simulator--hell, even the most complex computer models built today to simulate city behavior can't even come close to full realism. For example, it wasn't until SC4 that you were even allowed to build on a hillside, and just now in SC5 can roads and lots look realistically-shaped. And then there's the whole issue, as one other person noted, of basically being the dictator-for-life of your city.

    But there are still lessons to be learned, some of which I covered in the OP.
