Bus Driver (by SCS Software) is one of those simulation games that allows you to experience the thrills of something actually not very thrilling, while being strangely enjoyable for enthusiasts and gamers who take their driving [far too] seriously.
There's a good selection of buses on offer, and plenty of variety in the environments as you slowly crawl to each stop to pick up passengers, who stand there like mannequins before teleporting (you have to use your imagination here) onto your shiny bus.
The game is so slow-paced and quiet, the biggest danger to your passengers is you falling asleep at the wheel - so it's a nice touch that they'll scream and panic at the slightest hint of bad driving, making the urge to plow your bus into oncoming traffic irresistible.
As close as you'll get to driving a bus without actually driving a bus. Don't expect high-speed chases or screeching tires, Bus Driver expects you to obey the rules of the road, pick up passengers and use turn signals. If you like buses, you might want to give it a try.
