Sims 3 Is Evil

if there's any game i have lusted after since as long as i can remember, it is Sims. it has always been my dream to control the entire lives of human simulations and make them do as i please. with Sims 3 being the coolest version yet, i was positively drooling for it. but since it was pretty expensive and my brother had already used up his all the 'money saved up for PlayStation 3 games' that we had accumulated on some other useless game, there was no way to obtain Sims 3.

'til yesterday, that is. my brother had found out that one of his friends owned Sims 3, and she was willing to let him borrow it for a little while (i.e. till she came back from her vacation in a few weeks). she came to our house last night and handed the CD over. as soon as she left, i snatched the CD from my brother and stared at it in all its glory, in half excitement and half disbelief.

yes, this was my exact expression.

we instantly put the CD in our PlayStation and began playing. the feeling of joy i had at that very moment was indescribable. i created an entire household that looked (almost) exactly like the members of my family. i built a home and furnished it. i played with my little Sims and controlled their every move, just as i had always desired to. what happened next looks like this:


i must have spent a good two hours on it, struggling to keep my eyes open (it was late at night) before i finally decided to go to bed and continue playing the next day. i then remembered the existence of my phone, and when i checked it i was surprised to see loads of missed calls and this:

well not exactly this, but you get the picture.

i was totally engrossed in the game, so much that i ignored almost every call and text message on my phone. i was so completely lost in the lives of the Sims that i had forgotten the fact that stuff happening in the real world was way more important.

i suddenly realized what i had done. i had ignored everyone just so i could play a measly game. never mind the fact that i had waited to play it for a year, or that i would have to return it soon. my heart had been replaced with the Sims 3 CD. i was a horrid, terrible, evil person. BAD DOBBY!

this was me when the realization had struck.

anyway, i apologized to everyone and then made the decision that i would no longer play Sims 3 ever again. it was just way too distracting, therefore making me unable to talk to/text anyone while playing the game at the same time. i applaud everyone who can handle their Sims' life and their own and not be an epic fail at either one. i had my share of playing it, and now i have given up the responsibility to my brother. so today, the entire day, my brother has been handling the household i created and is really enjoying himself (and his friends don't mind either). 

moral of the story: SIMS 3 IS EVIL AND DISTRACTING. 

or maybe this entire thing proves that i suck at multitasking. oh well.

Russian Bear said...

Fahham Asghar said...

Same goes for Black ops , but its too much funn !

Fiona said...

I've never played Sims, but I really want to. [:
And I don't think you should NEVER EVER EVER play it again, because I've heard it's a really great game. Maybe play it in moderation?

Felicity said...

lol
I loved the post. :D

ZoeWrites said...

I've just finished playing on the sims!
I killed my sims accidently on purpose (locked them in a room until they starved)
Ahh, I manage to text/chat to people while playing on sims!

Kiran Ashraf said...

Agreed Sims is reallllllllllly distracting. I remember forgetting to wish my friend on her birthday...God it was horrible...she was totally pissed off!!

Jodie-AnnDuhBawwss. said...

LMAO! When I play Sims 3, I can't stop.
The first time I got it, I played till two something in the morning. And I had gone on it at like 3 o'clock or four in the day. :o

Delilah said...

Never played Sims. I'm assuming its that good =D This is next on my list.
And LOL furree. I'm sure your friends will understand.
If you like it so much then maybe you should just send them a text before you start playing saying that you'd be gone for a few hours. You might want to play it again before your brother returns it =)
LOVED the cartoon you as well. *bear hug*

mayen said...

i feel guilty, I am obsessed with sims 3. I play up to 4 hours a day when I don't have to work. I sometimes ignore text messages when I'm playing. lol. but i still love it. I'll never get tired of it, I guess...

kayren said...

oh those games are addicting. i was once addicted to ragnarok lol. glad i've gotten over it!

p.s. i like that its your pretty face i see first every time i view your blog. (;

eddiesdomain said...

Smokey_Cat said...

When I was in college, SIMS made me fail a midterm.

:S


It is evil. This is what happens when you try to play God with computer simulated humans

Multibrand said...

After reading your post I will not to play SIMS3.

ovais said...

I've never played SIMS :o
SimCity, SimTower, and SimSafari, yes.

But, um.. try 'pausing' the game every ten minutes to answer all the texts.. Or tell everyone to text you later, you're "busy" :p

I chuck my phone under my bed when I go off to play Golden Eye, Assassin's Creed, FIFA, or NFS :p
Try it.
After all, life is a gift which has to be enjoyed, right?

Leah said...

Ohhh.. I've never tried playing SIMS. But most of my friends recommend the game. Im not sure if I wanna play it, though.. seems sooooo addicting. LOL..

Ash said...

Your pictures never fail to be awesome.

Rebecca said...

I've always wanted to play on a Sims game. I wanted to create my own house and people too! But I never have to this day.

cricketfreak said...

I love SIMS:) But since I always play it on the phone, my people always die of fire:(

Maryam A. said...

I can totally relate to this post. OHMIGAWD.
I love your doodles. I loved the first one where the 'Furree' is drooling. xD

Twefrence said...

hahaha
I know Sims jz has this appeal to some ppl.. I used to play sims everyday too (back when they had individual names) on the pc
and thn I kinda outgrew it.
Last holiday me and a couple of my friends started playing sims 2 and basically it was the majority of our "get together time" haha

I do hv to say though, I can handle my "real life" while playing sims =P

chocolatemilk said...

Hahaha! I LOVE the Sims. I used to play Sims 2 a LOT on PS2. Havent playd Sims 3 on Ps3 though. Its probably much better :P

Whoa, didnt know someone could get THAT distracted by a game, especially being a girl. Girls HATE video games :P

ishashime said...

i absolutely love Sims! i have both sims 1 and 2 (sadly no 3) installed on my laptop and i have the many versions (castaway, nightlife, etc.) for the PS2 as well as the PSP version. hahaha. xD
surprisingly, i manage to keep up with all that and my real life. or maybe i just don't have as many friends as you do. or they don't care about me. huhu. :(
kidding. oh well, at least you tried. :)

PeaceLoveandSharpies said...

Lol, I have never played Sims.
But I have heard stories of how addictive it is.

:D

I guess I should follow.
It would be insulting my Desiness if I didn't. :D

However, I think that the fact that I can't make chai for my life suffices in doing that...

Yours Truly said...

lol! your little cartoon pictures make laughh! <3

Hamza Bin Ladin said...

Never heard a girl been so passionate about a play-station game! Whoa!

LOL, I must get my hand on this baby too. Sound pretty 'intriguing':P

Katherine said...

I love your illustrations. They're totally cute! :)

I haven't played Sims 3, nor am I a fan or any computer game or video game. We used to have a Playstation, too. I was 11 or 12 then. That was the time when I loooooved playing PS games. :)

Go on and enjoy playing games. Just don't be too occupied with them :) And your friends who texted and called you? I don't think they'll be mad at you for long.

Zy said...

Sims truly is distracting. Love your drawings!

normal.is.overrated. said...

I LOOOOVE sims for some reason or another,I love controlling them and making them do as I please :p I don't have 1 myself but whenever I visit my friend, we always end up playing for an hour or two :) what I do't like is the fact that I can't understand what they're saying!

Maryam A. said...

Hahha awwww. Doodles are love.

You have been awarded. Check it out asap.

Amy said...

I LOVE the Sims 3 and I completely agree that it is very distracting. I have been known to be engrossed in hours-long games that make me wonder where the time went. But I definitely don't consider it evil...I think it acts as a much-needed distraction from real life once in awhile!

hijabi hippie hypo said...

Try playing real life sometime. It's like you're living for real.

I am a victim of the Sims as well, albeit in a different sense.. Man, your blog is like a cure to my writer's block. This is fun to read.

Wish I could do quick and awesome illustrations like you do. -_-
