Unexpected Learning

Lately, I’ve been playing a bit of Cities Skylines, a city-building simulation game where you are a mayor tasked with building up a city from scratch (so, really, you’re a city planner). It’s quite a complex game, even without all the DLC, so I went to YouTube to help find some more information on how to play properly. I was quite happy to find that a YouTuber named City Planner Plays has a set of tutorials up, and as you may expect: he’s a city planner giving his perspective on how to do this. The thing that’s really interesting about this is that it doesn’t just teach me how to play the game, but he also discusses some actual city planning every now and then, such as the key difference between arterial, collector, and local road networks.

I can highly recommend his tutorial to learn more about Cities: Skylines:
