7. SimCity – Megalopolis on Hard Mode
I built this city in response to a YouTube commenter (Krocketneo) who asked me why I wasn’t building cities in hard mode.
It was something I had never done before, because it seemed absolutely ridiculous. You start with 1/4 the money you would have in easy mode (which means you can’t even build nuclear power plants), disasters are more prevalent, and your overall strategy has to adapt if you want to be successful.
I took multiple passes at a Megalopolis on hard mode, and failed several times. Honestly, I was ready to give up. However, through perseverance and determination, I ultimately achieved this goal.
Hard mode really is unforgiving and isn’t for everybody.
