Games are typically played to escape our dull or stressful everyday reality, yet they are also made to become increasingly realistic. There is a paradox right there, with downsides that players of the multiplayer mod for Eurotruck Simulator 2 recently experienced when they were stuck in traffic jam for ten minutes.
Mind you, every vehicle in the image is a real person. Contrary to less realistic games, there’s no smashing through the other trucks or driving up on the grass as you might do in any other online game when faced with congestion. This is Eurotruck Simulator 2, so you have to patiently sit there and wait. Welcome in the Society of Simulations.
