I know I haven’t written a post in a while and I’m sorry for that. I promise (well sort of) to be better at updating in the future. With the end and start of the year things get crazy at work. I’m finally catching up and can breathe for the first time in a month.
With that out of the way, I am a terrible sims player. I don’t know why I love these games when I cannot play. I like to create sims, and redecorate houses, but I’m a crap player. I don’t have the patience when it comes to waiting for them to build relationships on their own, so I force them to interact to a certain point in the relationship where they can get married, or have kids, or are best friends. Often before they have even walked into the house for the first time. Then I will only play then for a few hours before I’m making my next group of sims and doing it all over again. And yet I can’t get away from the game. It sucks you in.
I decided that with the new expansion that came out, “Get Together” I would try my hand at playing the game the way it was intended. Well the way the developers hoped people would play the game. I had my friend make me a house, and I created my “flower” child. I had her whole lifestory in my head and I couldn’t wait to create a garden club and spend hours in the dirt with all the other green thumbs in the game.
So I created my girl, moved her into her new digs and the very, I mean very, first thing she wants to do is cook a grilled cheese sandwich.
No problem right? It’s a simple enough dish, even with a low cooking skill. BTW, thanks Cassie for the awesome trailer! Okay so she’s standing at the stove scrapping the pan, like the sims do when this happens.
The look of fear on her face matched my own when this happened. I didn’t notice right away that she was on fire. I was sending my friend a text and when I looked up she was dance around and waving her hand in the air like she just didn’t care. Bad puns aside, I was terrified that she would die. I mean she just moved in and now I’d be forced to create a new character.
With the Sims 4 there is an option to extinguish yourself. That in it’s self was funny. After she was safely put out I was given this look and I think it says it all.
I had her take a shower before shutting down the game and walking away from my computer. I don’t know what it is about this game. And honestly I probably won’t play her next time because I’m embarrassed and pretty sure she hates me now.
