What is it? You’ve been living under a computer-less rock if you’ve never heard of The Sims. It feels like almost everyone played the early editions of this as a kid. For the uninitiated, it’s a life-simulation game where you get total control over the life of your custom-made Sim.
Why play? It’s a serious power trip. You rule in The Sims, controlling your character’s personality, the environment and pretty much everything else. There’s endless fun to be had toying with your little creations but you might find the allure of power goes to your head – when you start putting your Sims in the pool and taking away the ladders, it’s time for a break.
