it must mean PC game didn't have a good 2013 or....

this is a rather excellent game and the mayority of the PC games released this year. I'm wondering why this game is not a nominee for GOTY, I would rather have it there over Gone Home.

Unless it's a trucking game about a lesbian trucker illegally transporting oppressed lesbians from oppressive countries into free countries to liberate them, it won't beat Gone Home.

I think people like it because it's a chill game. I love intense games like Starcraft, Counter Strike, or DMC, but sometimes I get tired of killing things so I assumed is nice to just take a drive.

It's like real life, except with no complications, no stress, no dangers. You just do your job. Or don't. The game doesn't care.

You just drive. How's that fun? It would be pretty sweet to get in different cars and cruise around the country, break some speed limits or something.

The fun comes from the progression and the feeling that you did something. I suppose its more the feeling of accomplishment and relaxing nature of the sim that's appealing moreso than straight up 'fun'. Why is sim city fun (for those of us that don't use cheats and bring on disasters)? Are you just lacking the drive to try it? eh eh eh? Get it? Drive? Okay... going to bed now.

Edit: To clarify, there is a whole lot of progression and empire building in the game. You start off renting trucks and not being able to haul anything dangerous or large and need to take small trips. You slowly gain levels and unlock those restrictions while also making enough money to buy your own truck. Then you can buy garages, more trucks, hire drivers, level those drivers up and continue to grow... There is a surprising amount of depth to the sim beyond just driving.
