Simulation games with various characteristics are of good learning environment, which learners exhibit higher-order thinking, creativity, self-directed learning, and other abilities related to learning. The main aim of this paper is to evaluate the effects of learner and gaming factors on social-problem solving abilities in a simulation games that tries to explain the learning process in educational games. The research was conducted through a simulation game that Sims 2 aimed for university students (N = 120; 19-year-olds, 75 female and 45 male). The quantitative analyses were used to explore participants’ learning processes and gaming characteristics on social-problem solving skill. The results indicated that the gaming factor well totally an effect the social problem-solving ability as explanation power with 22.4%.
