Sim City Fallacies

Hmmm, interesting post that outlines some of the fallacies of the original Sim City, specifically:
1. the fallacy that transit costs are mostly in construction rather than operations (a false analogy with highways) and
2. the fallacy that residential and commercial development must always be on separate parcels -- no residential towers over retail or even an apartment over the corner shop.
