What’s a “Wuselfaktor”?

In German, we use the term “Wuselfaktor* for simulation or city-builder games that have lots of tiny people, cars, animals etc. running or walking around on the map.

Games with a high Wuselfaktor are, for example: The Settlers series, Cities Skylines or SimCity (cars rather than people), the Tropico series, Parkasaurus, Planet Zoo, Project Highrise, Prison Architect and so on… Basically, any games that could also represent an ant farm!

* “Woozle” would be how you roughly pronounce it; when translated it is something like the “hustle and bustle factor”.
