    Default Metro Sim Hustle

    OK I actually bought this today for 20USD and it's kind of fun https://store.steampowered.com/app/8...ro_Sim_Hustle/

    This is not your typical train simulator game, in fact that is just one of the aspects of it. It's kind of like the GTA series except driving the metro actually is you main income source. But there are all kinds of way to make money both legal and not.

    As far as the metro goes it's actually kind of fun for about 10 minutes and getting your payday. You'll have to honk for work crews, report terrorist activity, and your timing will provide bonuses. You gain skills and can work your way up to other routes over time.

    The actual city is an open world, life social game outside of work. You can date, go down to the arcade, casino. You have to buy food, and can actually buy appartments (you start out living in an abandoned building with a mattress). You can trade with others, find quest and social activities.

    Again probably not what people are looking for here, but I thought I'd mention it. I didn't get this because of the subways as I find them kind of boring. But this one is actually kind of fun. I think it has a limited shelf life but for 20 bucks I'm ok with that for now.

    Thanks

    From the Steam blurb.....

    "Take the reins of a high-speed commuter train and see if you can keep up with the tight schedule. Your passengers are waiting for you, but watch out for speed traps and terrorists!
    Earn some extra cash by completing sidequests for the locals, manufacturing and trafficking narcotics, having a scrap at the arena, or breaking into buildings. Hit one of the local entertainment venues after work that include a club, arcade, and casino."


    So essentially you are a drug-pushing burglar, who not only moonlights as a train driver, but also gets his jollies in the boxing ring when not avoiding terrorists on the underground.

    I dare say that this offering is unique in the annals of computer-gaming.

    Yeah but you can be good and turn your life around

    So far I haven't made 1 narcotic and I don't even smoke. Though I bet you it would make the game much more interesting haha! BTW the only vehicles that move above ground are police cars.

    I have fought in the arena but I get by but handed to be each time. I have no idea how to beat him. Got drunk a few times, made love once. Heck I even find recipes online to cook (something I don't do in real life) but I can also order pizza and frozen entres (more like what I do in real life)

    It has some character that is for sure.

    Thanks
