First, there will be no pics in this post. It's just going to be rambling. Why not pics? Well, my home PC (yes, I finally have a working home PC--it's been a LONG time) has no internet access at this time and I'm too lazy to drag pics to another computer to share them. That and I really haven't taken any. Ok, I took two to check out how the pic thing works (but more because I had an elderly alien visit my household the very first night I played and I got the family cat, Hypnotoad, to greet the alien--it was worth getting a pic).
So, no pics.
I was going to do a list of what I like and don't like but it was boring. So I'll just boil it down to this:
Sims3 seems to be a bridge between PC and console. It really has feels of both. Right now it's a matter of NOT comparing it to sims2. It really is a whole different game. I noticed it the most with the socialization aspects. You have to really work at that crap now. No more talking on the phone with a sim for hours and hours one night then inviting them over the next day and BOOM you're best friends (or lovers, whatever). And with the story progression on, stuff changes. Sims aren't just going to sit around single waiting for you to pair up with them.
So, about the sims I'm playing. I have one household in each neighborhood.( Collapse )
So far, I'm enjoying sims3. It's fun to have a game to play again but I don't know that I'll be obsessed with it like I was sims2.
