A few months ago, The Sims 3
hit store shelves. For our anniversary, my wife bought the collectors edition. Sweet present, don’t ya agree? I dove right in and played for hours. However, this version and previous versions have left me with the same question. “Why couldn’t life be more like the Sims?” Take a look at how easy Sims have it.
1. Learning is easy. Click and know!
I need to learn how to cook and repair stuff today. I’ll just start out in the morning. Alright let me grab my books. I’ll read at warp speed. Three hours later, I’m now a master chef and repair person! I can cook without setting the kitchen on fire or fix stuff without electrocuting myself!
2. Don’t like your environment? Complain!
I’m not happy with my pad! I’m just gonna scream, shout and point to whatever I don’t like. Like magic it will either go away or get replaced with something nicer. That neon sign on the wall is too tacky. No biggie! Wahhhhh! OOOOH LAAA!
3. Jobs are easy to obtain. Everyone is hiring in the Sim world.
Bummer, I’ve gotta get a job? Let’s just pick up the paper. Oh there’s so many exciting jobs. I want to be a writer when I grow up. I’ll just start delivering papers now. No interview needed, just start on Monday!
4. Spin yourself around to dress yourself.
Oh time to change clothes. No biggie, I’ll just jump and spin around. Presto I’m decked out for whatever occasion. Gotta put on my work clothes. I’ll stop and spin again to get ready for work. Time for bed, let me just spin into something more comfortable!
5. Can’t make it to the bathroom. Just go wherever you are!
Oh man someone’s in the bathroom. I’ve gotta go real bad. Oh well, I just went on my nice hardwood floors. Now I’ll cry and clean it up later.
6. Whatever I need or whenever I need it, will appear in thin air!
Man, it sure would be fun to have a rocket to blast into outer space. Let me pull one out of my ass. Oh there it is. Ut oh! I peed on the floor again. Poof! Oh there’s my mop! “Singing in the rain… Singing in the rain…”
Isn’t life with the Sims easy? I would think so. Maybe it’s a little too easy. Granted I’m sure it would get old after a while. But at the end of the day. It’s a video game. Like other video games, it’s a fantasy world. If it were that easy, it would be kinda boring. Life on the Sims kinda reminds me of the Enzyte, natural male enhancement guy. “Look at Bob, he’s happy….” If you haven’t played it, be sure to check it out
