Sims Are My Crack

So how many hours have I spent playing The Sims 2 this weekend?

I'll just say this - it was here when I got home from work Friday evening at 5pm. I began playing and went to bed at 5am Saturday morning. I woke up at 7am and resumed playing - and didn't stop until going to bed last night at 9pm (only because my brain just wouldn't go anymore without a full night's rest and a few-hours-break from staring at the screen). After blogging this, I'm going to start playing again.

So what's it like? Remember when Nintendo came out, and the games - like The Legend of Zelda & Mario Bros. - seemed like the-coolest-thing-in-the-world? Then a few years later Playstation came out and the graphics on the games made original Nintendo games look like cave art? That's about a comparable difference with The Sims & The Sims 2 graphics. Amazing doesn't even begin to describe it.

I tried starting out with one of the "starter" families that is already in the game with an on-going life so I could learn my way around this new game. Don Lothario, however, was an unlucky guy in my game time. I had him make a toaster pastry in his toaster oven just before work - yet his carpool arrived before it was done so he left. Of course the toaster oven burst into flame and, of course, he had no smoke detector. So everything in his kitchen and the next room burned to the ground. Even better, the maid stopped by for her daily visit, walked right into the flames and died. Don was pretty upset about this since I found out from his past memories he'd been woo hooing the maid ('woo hoo' is Simlish for 'sex'). His maid is now buried in his backyard and I cannot get a female maid to come to any of the other houses.

For all you The Sims fans out there - Kat this means you! - do whatever you have to do to buy it. It's so much fun - extremely challenging - and I don't think I can ever enjoy playing the original The Sims again unless it's for nostaliga's sake.

Crack ain't got nothing on computer games...

    Currently it looks like Drupal is the preferred blogging platform
    out there right now. (from what I've read) Is that
    what you're using on your blog?
