Yo, the Sims 3 is a pretty amazing game if you can get past the fact that to play the entire thing costs an arm and a leg.
My simdude got married recently, packed up his shit and moved to the New York style map. He'd earned a fortune in writing novels and selling sculptures so I was able to buy the biggest lot and build a $500,000+ house with enough left over to buy a bunch of real estate in the city. Since I no longer have to work I just send my dude wandering around town, being a rich and famous celebrity. Also thanks to various perks I've bought he's immortal and never ages past being a young adult. He's going to end up a one man corporation and have total control of the entire town before long.
Why is this game so addictive and great
