Simulations versus games

Clark Quinn

At the recent Realities 360 conference, I saw some confusion about the difference between a simulation and a game. Simulations. As I’ve mentioned, simulations are models of the world. You can also think about simulations as being in a ‘state’ (set of values in variables), and move to others by rules. Similarly, these simulations can model considerable complexity. Note that you may already have a simulation.
