A simulation video game describes a diverse super-category of video games, generally designed to closely simulate aspects of a real or fictional reality.A simulation game attempts to copy various activities from real life in the form of a game for various purposes such as training, analysis, or prediction.

From three basic types of strategic, planning, and learning exercises: games, simulations, and case studies, a number of hybrids may be considered, including simulation games that are used as case studies.

Strategy games sometimes incorporate CMS aspects into their game economy, as players must manage resources while expanding their project.

But pure CMS games differ from strategy games in that "the player's goal is not to defeat an enemy, but to build something within the context of an ongoing process." is a subgenre of simulation video games in which the player lives or controls one or more artificial lifeforms.

A life simulation game can revolve around "individuals and relationships, or it could be a simulation of an ecosystem".

A sports game is a video game that simulates the playing of sports.

Most sports have been recreated with a game, including team sports, athletics and extreme sports.

Some games emphasize actually playing the sport (such as the Madden NFL series), whilst others emphasize strategy and organization (such as Championship Manager).

Some, such as Arch Rivals, satirize the sport for comic effect.

This genre has been popular throughout the history of video games and is competitive, just like real-world sports.

A number of game series feature the names and characteristics of real teams and players, and are updated annually to reflect real-world changes.

Every famous celebrity including Leonardo Di Caprio has played the role of a pilot in some movie.
