M1 Tank Platoon 1+2 by Microprose -That was the classic tank sim untill Steel beasts.

Personally I prefered Panzer Commander by SSI.

I think Steel Beasts was my favourite because it allowed you to tone down the effect of airpower.

I used to play a lot of the Panzer/Allied General series but more because of its re-playability and simplicity than its accuracy.

A good simulation game lets players dig into real-life situations that they would never otherwise get to explore. A great simulation gives players complete control over every little detail. If you love being the person in charge, these are the games for you.
'The Sims'
'Flight Simulator 2002'
'RollerCoaster Tycoon'
'Nintendogs'
'Second Life'

I used to play allied and panzer general religiously on the PS one. I also liked Steel panthers as well for the PC, I used to spend hours and hours making my own "what if" scenerios.

Sid Meier's Civilisation IV (plus all Expansions) - awesome game, made even more awesome by the community's modification and customisation work.

X-Wing Alliance - LOL, ok, not much of a "simulator", considering we aren't exactly hooning around space yet, but it's a flight-sim of sorts, and the sheer amount of craft to fly, gaming options, surprisingly solid graphics considering the game's age, and all played to a sweeeeeeet John Williams Soundtrack? Out-standing!

SimCity - Whats more fun than creating a sprawling society, catering for it's every whim, then trashing it with an invading monster? Nothin, that's what

Gunship 2000 - Old old offering by Microprose; Kicked much ass

Mechwarrior - played for many many hours back in high school. Again, not really a true simulator, since we're not poking around in large mechanised behemoths, but still loosely fitting into the genre...

Heres the info I got...

PC and X360

Its a full reboot of the series, its not Mechwarrior 5. Its being made by the original designers of FASA by a new studio called Smith and Tinker

and the Robotech people have already sued them...
