The Sims and the Simpson
I think I must have first discovered the Sims in my early teens, when the Sims 1 came out. Throughout childhood I'd always make up stories with their own characters. I'd draw them and describe their personalities in detail, so the Sims was a welcome addition to my leisure time.
Now, with the Sims 2, it's much easier to create varied Sims and have them lead varied and interesting lives.
I will finish this later, because I'm being barked at to get off the computer!
