In addition to being a bookaholic I am also addicted to PC games. My particular favorite is Sims 3. I love playing God (or Goddess if you will) with an entire town of unsuspecting sims. I grant wishes and I take them away. Last week I gave a sim the life goal of super hero firefighter, and then I forced him to be a stylist. He spent his days giving people make-overs when he really wanted to be rescuing other sims from life-threatening fires. He died old and unhappy. I had fun ruining his life. I recently discovered that this game has a new expansion pack being released this fall. Here's the trailer:
I can't wait. I think the first thing that I want to do is turn a sim into a vampire. Or maybe a celebrity who lives in a penthouse and hits all the hot spots in town after dark. Of course I'll have to skimp on groceries and eat nothing but ramen noodles for a few weeks so I can afford this expansion pack on the day it's released (and then I'll get no homework done for a few days), but it's worth it. Isn't it?
