This is no joke. Guess what I did from 3 o'clock in the afternoon till 8 o'clock at night? I sat on my very uncomfortable computer chair and played on the Sims. No just any old Sims. Sims 3. Could this be a review? Tottaly irrelavent to what this blog is about. Live with it :)
I remember the old days (about 6 years ago) when my mum bought me my first ever sims; the original sims. I adored it! The power to become god? Hell yeah! Setting the whole house on fire. Murdering the sim by letting a cooking newb fry up a sophisticated dish of some food I can't remember the name of. Life was good. Until Sims 2 was unleashed. Life became even better!
At this point, I didn't care for creating havoc and mischeif. Downloading custom content was the only reason I even bothered. So many clothes. I finally could reflect my own style on my sim. I remember finding this GORGEOUS casual outfit that consisted of grey skinny jeans, red and white striped vest top, navy blue boyfriend blazer, topped off with loads of gold jewellery and heels. I downloaded everything - from clothes to lingerie.
But then I got bored with just dressing them. So I searched 'sims 2 furniture downloads', just on a wim, not knowing what the end results would be. I was amazed at how many links my eager cursor could click on. I downloaded more and more furniture and less and less clothes - i kept the best, of course. I was hooked on Sims 2 interior designing. Creating houses and furnishing them took the longest amount of time in my opinion. My favourite provider - http://www.simsinparis.net/ - I was speechless at how amazing people were. I even favourited a Sims 2 magazine that specialised in interior and exterior designs. www.mackat.dk/livingetc, i believe was the website. Absolutely stunning. It is a Sims 2 architecture and interior design addicts holy bible.
Time went by and the new craze, Sims 3 was released. I was xSparkage talking about it and I wanted it. Reaaaaaaaal bad. So I went to my local HMV and bought the damn thing for £40! I arrived home and went straight to the computer. It didn't take long to load. Well. Not as long as everyone was saying it was. To this day, It's still pretty quick *thank god* I arrived on the unfamiliar home screen and thought 'WTF', I didn't know what to do or what to press. It's so jam packed of things to do and endless possiblities that I was gobsmacked. I'd never taken so long to create a sim, build a home and furnish it. It actually wares you out, by the time you actually get to start some gameplay, your out of breath (not literally) and tired from playing.
I see what Leesha means. It's so crazy and you have so much to do that you end up being sick of hearing the background music. However, I love it still. The choices given to you makes me feel quite blissed. I don't have to worry about not finding the right colour or not liking the pattern. Your limited when it comes to type and style but you have so much fun in the process of creating everything you forget about it :)
I'll put some photos up later - probably after this one.
Anyone think that it's an extremely annoying bother, when you write an essay on here and you want to put images or graphics at the end of your rant but you have to drag the images to the bottom. :
I'll see you guys soon, hopefully with a video of some sort
