For the past 12 years, I have been obsessed with The Sims. Every Sims game that I could possibly play, I have; PC, console, the Life and Castaway stories, even the craptastic Sims Freeplay. Every computer I have purchased has been to replace a computer that could no longer run the game quickly. After the release of the Sims 2: Pets, I started speaking Simlish to my dog, calling “Hey, Flicka Flicka.” When the newest expansion pack came out, I got the shakes just waiting until the midnight release. My name is Ashleigh, and I am a Sims addict.
The newest expansion pack promised to add so many new features to the game, like scuba diving and a freakin' Kraken, that I have recently thought about what has kept me playing all these years. The answer? Control. I am a moderate control freak and with The Sims; I not only get to be a third person omniscient God for an entire family, I also get to use that family to torture an entire town. After the Supernatural expansion pack came out, I made a witch that went and tried to set everybody’s home on fire. With Island Paradise, I have released the Kraken on many a speed boat that I see racing past my home and even fought a shark!
