SimCity evil genius constructs megalopolis worthy of a Matrix sequel

This is, quite frankly, scary. This fellow spent three years and a lot of graph paper designing the “optimal” SimCity 3000 city. He used an advanced grid and zoning layout to achieve a perverted sort of urban planning perfection. The result: a simulated city with a population of more than 6 million Sims — a higher population than Hong Kong.

Of course, it doesn’t hurt that he has put some of the creepiest music possible and blood-red title cards into his video explaining this simulated opus. If you ever played SimCity, as I did (every version, by the way), watch this and tremble in fear and wonder.
