Gas Station Simulator is one of those janky games that grow on you the more you play. Most of the things that are simulated in the game can be considered boring in real life, but doing boring stuff can be relaxing and, sometimes, entertaining.
Since Goat Simulator made its debut back in 2014, many studios have tried to copy its successful formula, but all we got is just more games with “simulator” in their names that are trying to be weird without simulating anything. Gas Station Simulator walks a thin line between a bait title and an entertaining experience that packs enough ingredients to be called a sim.
I don’t think many would see working in a gas station as a dream job, but having to do all the chores involved can be soothing for the brain, at least virtually. Gas Station Simulator doesn’t take itself too seriously, yet I had to take my job very seriously to succeed.
As the name suggests, Gas Station Simulator puts you in the shoes of a sole owner of a decrepit gas station on Route 66. Except for a few very old buildings and an even older bulldozer, there’s nothing else on the property you bought from the money obtained after selling your car that got you there.
Since you spent everything you had to buy the gas station, your uncle borrows you some money to get the necessary tools to repair what can be repaired and buy what needs to be replaced or is missing. Going forward, the game feels like a race to the finish due to the addictive gameplay loop that requires increased micromanagement of your gas station business.
Stocking your gas station with snacks, drinks, ice cream, alcohol, and tobacco means you’ll be adding another chore to the list of things you need to do when managing a gas station. I spent most of my time in Gast Station Simulator behind the register serving clients. Being a cashier can be boring and soothing at the same time, depends on whether or not you decide to unplug your brain.
