10 Must-Play Video Games for Architecture and Design Nerds

As children, we begin our interaction with the world through shapes, building blocks, and Legos. As times goes on, we lose that willingness to create as we fall back on more passive activities, watching TV shows rather than creating our own stories, texting our friends instead of daydreaming. For those whose fascination with making things never stopped, we've compiled the top 10 video games every architecture nerd—and every Lego fanatic—will love. This list includes long-loved games like SimCity and Minecraft as well as lesser-known gems like Monument Valley and Calvino Noir. These games are meant to excite players through human curiosity, creativity, and puzzles. While some of them allow the player to build monuments and towns, others are examples of how architecture can influence our emotions in ways we might not realize.
