“The Sims. Mmmm. What can I tell you?
I don’t play simulators. I’m a first-person shooter kind of guy. Still, I bought the game in the hope for something ‘different’.
Now I’m pretty screwed cause I like it. I really do. I |want| to play it 24 hours a day. Why, you ask?
Well, come closer, I’ll tell you.
The game has a very simple concept. Basically you lead one or more characters through their daily life. You build a house, move in, find a job and develop your character. That’s all you ask? Hell no! It’s not that easy. You don’t just play with your character. Your character plays with you. You need to fulfill all their needs or they’ll be jolly quick to give you the finger (figurally speaking). They need sleep, food, fun, social contact and much more. And lots of it too.
This real-life simulator will keep you busy for the next few weeks (24/7, be assured). Just don’t let it replace your real life like it did with me. By the way, gotta go. The Sims are calling.
