House Flipper – PC
Let’s start with a title related to remodeling, in House Flipper your task will be to renovate houses that are on the brink of destruction. After you redecorate and rebuild a house you can sell it and start buying other types of properties.
Here’s how it works: You’re in your office, a client calls you and you have to take care of painting, redecorating, doing the plumbing and basically saving the house of anyone who contacts you.
The more missions you manage to complete within the houses, the better alternatives you will have to improve each of the buildings . This title gives you a lot of freedom when deciding how the houses will be, the final result depends on you and only on you.
The game is easy to master, the mechanics are intuitive, you will learn to handle it quickly. This is one of the modern simulators that we have liked the most in recent years.
Construction Simulator – PC
From the creators of Farming Simulator now comes Construction Simulator for PC, as you can imagine everything revolves around construction. You can expect a high level of quality and depth in this title.
You will assume the role of an engineer or a contractor builder, you will have to accept offers to build buildings from scratch.
The graphics are excellent and it is truly varied, addicting. You have, among other things, 40 different vehicles that you have to use when building, all in order to meet the delivery deadline as punctually as possible.
Construction Simulator gives the impression of being something like an open world game, you can freely travel between your buildings to check that everything is going as it should.

Will you be the next to make a fortune as a contractor? If you plan to dedicate yourself to construction or civil engineering, first stop by Consturction Simulator to get an idea.
Life is Feudal: Forrest Village – PC
To understand what this title is about, you will have to put in a blender Skyrim, SimCity, a pinch of GOT and some House Flipper. For us it is the funniest game on the entire list. If you enjoy medieval themes, this is the one you should get.
The title is based on two perspectives: that of the builder who creates the houses, the plantations, in short, everything the town needs; that of the villager, where you will have a first-person camera and you will be able to hunt, fish, mine … Basically test how your creation works.
In the end, this ends up being a title with two phases, one of construction and design, then one of urban planning that you can put to the test yourself by putting yourself in the shoes of the villagers. A marvel!
Playing as a villager is no joke, you can starve if you don’t do things right. Citizens are divided into children, adolescents and adults. You should build everything in such a way that you meet the needs of each group in a balanced way.
The Sims – PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Android and iOS
The most successful life simulator in the world raised its standards even more with Sims 4. It is the version of the entire saga with more expansions and cheats available.
Never in a game of The Sims have you had so many abilities and so much freedom, you can be an entrepreneur, freelancer, vet, restaurant owner, have a clinic, be a teacher, doctor, vampire, mermaid, get pregnant with quadruplets … And let’s leave it there.
Sims is not exactly a city simulator, or a house builder, but that’s okay. Who doesn’t play it to test your skills as a designer? You can go the long way and sweat every penny you use for construction or use a little bit of motherlode to go crazy with ideas, it’s up to you.
