Wake up, get ready, go to work, come back, level up some skill for a bit, eat some shitty food and shower, go to sleep, repeat until you receive paycheck to spend on AESTHETICS, do it all over again.

Why did I find this fun when I was younger? What's the POINT? Earn virtual money to CONSUME virtual decorations? For what purpose? Nice """escapism""" Will Wright

*urp* i turned us into SIMS morty


>spending your sims' lifetimes and paychecks on aesthetics
>not spending them on grinding your gardening skill, eventually attaining economic self-sufficiency and discovering the secret of immortality through the life fruit
smh fam


Owning the means of production in Sims 2: Open for Business radicalized me


What is the point of any game anon? That's why they call it a pastime anon. It helps you pass the time.


The enjoyment of the game is that you can easily have a successful life and do a bunch of crazy shit and move into a mansion, unlike real life


Pastime is for fun and play. Not watching your virtual avatar grinding their life away for virtual decorations.

So just because it's too easy you say it doesn't qualify as a game.

Has anyone ever made a life on hard mode mode for the sims? That'd be pretty cool. If the game was always tossing really hard problems at you and your sims family. Trying to juggle raising your kids with wage slaving and etc.


>it's this autist again


Sims hasn't been a chore simulator (aka difficult) since the first game. The rest really doesn't require you to spend that much on routine.

>begging the question

I dunno OP. You found it fun because your brain was less developed? Because there's plenty of people that find menial chores fun, Sims doesn't even begin to compare to a game like Animal Crossing New Horizons. 20 million sales or so.


>The Sims barely even qualifies as a game
Then what definition would fit it best according to you?


I only play it for Wicked Whims


sounds like fun and play to me


/v/-tier thread but disguised as communist


Just because this is leftypol does not mean that every thread has to be about roleplaying as communists, you know.


No point in arguing with some schizo who chooses one definition to arbitrarily elevate over all others.


personally i just married a bunch of people, steal the wealth then murder then by starving them capitalist style


it doesnt mean we need to make vacuous analyses about how media is "consoooooooomerist" or whatever either


About as "fun and play" as following Instagram hucksters and then fantasizing about their lives.


Which is why jerma's dollhouse is a modern day socialist opera


I like Sims for Wicked Whims


your definition of a video game is even more arbitrary actually


whats up with channers wanting to pass their subjectivity as objectivity. do they need to cope with being losers that much. i consume better thing! just embrace it tbh, it will make it all much easier.


didnt he almost hurt himself in one of his dollhouse streams ?


Almost, but he nailed the jump

Found the real redditor.


youre literally as fragile as ledditors, congrats


TS1 is a better statement on consumerism than anything anyone on this site could cook up. Only when you find yourself, deliberately and "for fun", looking at a virtual representation of yourself enjoying itself playing a video game you yourself are not playing, will you truly understand. And then you yourself will stop playing and simply go consume something else, because no matter how many woke posts you make online, you are not free


a lot of the fun of the sims imho is escaping capitalism with insane hijinks. sims 3 is most conducive for this since you can revert to barter economy and do anything from gardening to freelance gem cutting to alchemy. sims 2 is still my overall favorite sims though, cause it has just such a tight few systems with a lot of interactivity, whereas the later sims are mostly just fun but disconnected systems you can play with. of course that is mostly the fault of the DLC policy of EA - hard to make a game of integrated systems when there is like a hundred pieces of DLC between store stuff and expansions. easy to pirate now-a-days though.
oh, and shoutout to doing home decoration, especially with console commands and mods to allow for more items on surfaces. I love just the serenity that comes from gradually expanding a room both in function and form.


Oh, and the last time he tried to break dance, he didn't stream for 3 months due to back pain. He


Sims 3 would be cool if the sims themselves didn't look like bloated chinless potato faced abominations


>Has anyone ever made a life on hard mode mode for the sims? That'd be pretty cool.
There are loads of mods for like, more expensive bills, less wages, you having to manually go out and buy groceries, ect.


This post is missing the most horrific part of the sims: absolutely terrorising them.
Random sims from the neighborhood will just enter your home, eat your mac and cheese, and there's nothing you can do to make them leave.
On the flip side, you can force your sims through a massive labyrinth, goading them on with the promise of a toilet.


Sims 3 game + CAStyle with Sims 4 CASim would be best game for me

does this mean that the sims is capitalist propaganda or does this mean that it's a critique? The games give me the vibe that they want us to think that meritocracy is real and that wage slavery is acceptable.


why do the girlies love sim
pls explain


Propably because it's playing house but you can pretend it's not actually that


neither really, cause especially with sims 2 onwards you can instead make a fucking garden commune and easily subsist off of it. in fact, in the sims 3 especially a lot of the "hobbies" you can do can end up being vastly more profitable than any job - a dipshit looking for rare rocks and metals in people's backyards will make more money than an army general with multiple raises who served all the way into retirement. likewise there is never any real "production" jobs when you think about it - your sims never get like, a job producing shit in any meaningful sense, so either they outsourced all of it to robots (which they very clearly have in abundance) or the games were never meant to make any kind of economical sense.


Sims 5 is coming and it will have online multiplayer.


Lmao can't wait to drown my friend in sims


Is not that girls love Sims is just that Sims is probably the only game in the world with an equal representation of male and female players


fair enough, i didn't think about that


use cheats
