If you're reading this, you probably wasted hours and hours of your youth on Simcity 2000. Chances are you also know the weird, off-beat soundtrack by heart. But in the '90s, Will Wright's Sim Franchise was massive, and SimCity 2000 was only one one game in a series that spanned subjects like healthcare reform and the lives of ants.
On Today's Kotaku Mix Tape, we're listening to excerpts from all around the Sim franchise. From majestic, philharmonic covers of console ports to the questionable, simlish warblings of British pop stars: We take a look at a little bit of everything.
