Don't understand why "REE-L gamerz" like to bash Sims players.
It's very much a sandbox game, people take pride in Elder Scrolls toolboxes but Sims is "not a real game"?
Yeah nobody is gonna be doing an E-Sports event with Sims (I am assuming they don't exist?) but I am honestly extremely impressed at the homebrew games and just pure mass carnage people create and share online.
I just watched someone create a prison for hundreds of Sims to starve in.
And someone who created a series of Sims that earn wealth from absolutely nothing.
Then there's the 100 Baby Challenge, which I am playing right now (though I cheated on some aspects, because I am lazy).
Plus the Polygon video where the host uses the game to assess his apartment and life??
I'm just saying, games don't need to be competitive to be games.
Solitaire is a game. I sat alone at a hostel playing it in the dining area, no one but the receptionist around me.
Drawing finger turkeys is a game, especially when you start trying to use the shape of your hand to predict your future when you're 10 years old.
Neopets is a game. I mean, some of us would rather spam the hide and seek or fashion page to earn those coins even if you don't get real scoreboards from it.
I believe that you don't need to go to the Olympics or whatever for it to still be a game. Not all games require prizes and glory.
