    Honestly? I would love to see a Cities Skylines II mini-series or something like it. There's something incredibly entertaining and wholesome in seeing Grian learn how the game works.

    Cities Skylines videos give me this soothing, calming, relaxing vibes. Grian videos give me chaotic, 110% energy level vibes. This will be interesting mix…
