The Sims 3 (PC)
Advantages: Time passes quickly
Disadvantages: Too addictive!
I have been played the sims for about 10years now. I brought the original "Sims" and thought it was fantastic! Theres no other game like it! You could create your own sims and build them houses, get them jobs and aim for the high life. Then along came the Sims 2. Which was better but took a little getting used to as the camera angle was differnet and they added a lot more new features. There were hundreds of extension packs such as pets, open for business, university, vacation.. you name it and i'm sure there was an extension pack for it!
When I first got the sims 3 i didn't notice that much difference between sims 2 and 3, but now I realise it's a lot better. I got an extenstion pack for the sims 3 and it allows them to get jobs such as firefighter, tattooist, ghost hunter and you can go to work with them and make over a persons home or put out fires. Which is a new aspect of the game as before you couldn't go to work with them.
You can also create a much better personality, and can assign them starsigns, likes and dislikes and theres a lot more clothes to choose from. You can decide if they are going to a be a loving mother with 10 children or a home wrecker who loses her job all the time. It's so much fun deciding what you can do with them all.
An aspect I like with the sims 3 is that the sims age and eventually die, and it helps you create a family tree and the money(if they are a rich family) will continue to grow!
I'm looking forward to a new expansion pack coming out later this year which is a sims 3 pets, I really enjoyed sims 2 Pets and I think the sims should have pets and so they are bringing it back! Another One I really liked was sending them off to university, you can choose which degree they study for, they should make that available for the sims 3.
A negative of the Sims 3 is just how long you play it for, your days slip away! I always say "oh, i'll just play until they get married or until the baby is born, or i'll just redecorate their house" By this time 5hrs has passed and you realise nothing has been done! I can play for hours at a time for weeks at a time and then I eventually lose interest, but then about 5months later I decide to play it again and i'm hooked once more!
Summary: Love it
