The Sims, anyone?

Postby GreenRain22 on Sun Sep 14, 2008 11:23 am

One of my addictions. I've officially decided I'd be a sucky ass God.

Discuss!
Kaylee: Wash, tell me I'm pretty.
Wash: If I were unwed, I would take you up in a manly fashion.
Kaylee: 'Cause I'm pretty?
Wash: 'Cause your pretty.
(Wash and Kaylee, Firefly, Heart of Gold)

It's a broken hearts parade
And I'm putting my heart out on display
There's no masquerade
Just a funeral march for love today
The band strikes up and they're playing a song
Dressed in black, and we're singing along to the
Broken hearts parade
I've never been better then I am today


(Broken Hearts Parade - Good Charlotte)

Way back, before I appreciated good games, I played The Sims. Even then though, I'd make a couple reproduce as fast as possible, kill the offspring, and build myself a graveyard with the corpses. I don't think that the game was ever supposed to be played that way...

Yes. While I prefer the setting of The Urbz, the Sims is rather fantastic.

I've got most of The Sims 2 expansions. I used to have The Sims 1 until I gave it to someone to borrow and it came back unusable. It was left underneath a couch that almost scraped the floor, so it was scratched.

Also, The Sims 3 is coming out! I can't wait.

Bah. Sims 3. I'll take it if someone gives it to me. If not, pfft. I still haven't even finished FFXXII.

Thought! I'm going to play Sims on my new laptop! I have instructions to try it out, to see if it can do all I want... may as well, eh? I know what I'm doing tomorrow :D

I'm going to make myself sad.

I downloaded lots of mods for The Sims 2, so now my characters can be the characters from Naruto, and also Transformers. Go, Sasuke!

Anyone remember The Sims Online? AHAhahaaaa.....

Anyway, I've only got the first one, so I dunno about the second, but I'm kinda hoping that Sims 3 bridges the gap between the Sims and the Urbz, you know? I like city living, and basically everything Urbz, but with the PC Sims style gameplay. It would kick ass.

I only played the Gameboy version of Urbz. Is it that good?

I didn't really like the urbz, pretty much the games message was "dress and act like everyone around you so they'll like you" you can't be an individual you have to shape your character to how other want you to be.

And I think the core mechanic of Sims 3 is that instead of just your sims house as the main game area they've added an entire town so when you sim walks outside they can go to a store or the park without a load screen to a different area

That'll be good. I'll roam the neighbourhood as a vampire, jumping out of bushes and abusing simulated people everywhere.

You'll regret the day I was spawned...

The DS version of the Urbz was good. I liked the various fashions from the other versions, but the DS version was more of an RPG, which was interesting.

Back in the day, The SIms was the only way for me to express my homosexuality.


Now I have gay bars.
