On 20 November Farming Simulator 19 for PC/Steam, Apple Mac, PS4 and Xbox One will be released. With the 2019 part, the series is celebrating its ten-year anniversary. That is naturally worth congratulating while taking a brief look at the diverse landscape of simulator games, which have accumulated over the years. From absurd to extremely serious.
Farming Simulator 19
The Farming Simulator, developed by Giants Software, is naturally right at the top of the list. Several gamers will certainly make fun of this (why would you want to continue working on a PC or console after school or work?), but the series has built up a huge fan base with fantastic games. The newest part offers more than 300 vehicles and items of equipment from more than 100 licensed brands, livestock farming with pigs, cows, sheep and now even horses. Life on your own farm starts out being small and manageable with low-priced equipment. But gradually, you are rewarded for the work invested with better machines and high earnings. Farming Simulator is fun and you even learn new things. youtu.be/Zd6u3SS5-XQ
At the opposite end of the spectrum, there is Goat Simulator, by Coffee Stain Studios. As the name already suggests, life with a goat is simulated here. But, instead of peacefully grazing the entire day, the goat causes the utmost chaos and thereby collects points. So, it is not a real simulation at all and in no way realistic. The developers know that and intentionally leave in all the bugs that don't crash the game. There are innumerable Let's Plays with bizarre bugs and funny accidents, such as flying goats and inexplicable explosions. And if that doesn't sound crazy enough, the developers have even released the MMO upgrade, which makes fun of World of Warcraft and Skyrim.

Bus Simulator 18
Have you ever shivered in freezing cold weather and been annoyed about a late bus? With Bus Simulator, these times are a thing of the past! With this, you are responsible for any delays yourself (and are also always sitting in a warm bus). In Bus Simulator 18, passengers can be transported on 8 licensed city buses in freely accessible city districts. There is also "action" on the streets, with potholes, building sites, traffic jams, accidents and more. Driving buses together is also possible in multi-player mode. Maybe bus driving would be a good sideline activity in the next part of GTA.

The new favourite among the crazy simulators is called Thief Simulator. The activities of a thief are simulated here. Scouting out houses, breaking in as quietly as possible and stealing valuable items, such as televisions, unseen. With successful break-ins, the bank account fills up, with which better equipment can be financed for bigger break-ins. But, the game is naturally not an excuse for committing real crimes.

PC Building Simulator
Now it's getting meta. How would it be to have a simulator on the PC that simulates the construction and maintenance of a PC? Sounds crazy, but it really exists. With the PC Building Simulator, you can "play" at building a PC. Where does a GPU go? What does good wiring look like? What turns on the flashing LEDs? With several licensing partnerships, these questions and many more can be answered in the PC Building Simulator. The game is certainly not to be understood as 1-to-1 instructions, but if you would like to familiarise yourself with the individual components of a PC (or finally build the monster PC of your dreams), PC Building Simulator is a fun option.

I am Bread
Bread. For some reason, the developers, Bossa Studios, which also developed the Surgeon Simulator, also decided that the world needs a bread simulator. The result of this is called I am Bread. The aim of this is to get it into the toaster as a slice of bread. For this, numerous obstacles need to be overcome in story mode. How does bread even move? With a funny control unit, with which accidents on the way to the toasted bread are pre-programmed.
