The Sim's

The Sims is an odd one. There's no action, no big bosses, no confusing puzzles and no power ups but it's still really cool. Instead you make a sim-family, design a house for them to live in, pick a job and help keep their life on track. Watching the whole family run around, burn dinner, break the TV, have parties and generally live it up is really, really, cool. These little guys are way cooler than virtual pets and they have stereos that they'll play your MP3's on.

The Sim's is a neat game with tons of cool stuff for the Sims to do: raise families, have kids, get jobs, commit crime, buy furniture, etc... All you need to make it a truly excellent experience is a bit of imagination to bring your sim-family to life.


The Sim's aren't for everyone though. It takes some time to get into it and start exploring the endless possibilities. Once you get used to it you'll be hooked.

    Most people say that Links awakening was the best, and that is mostly true. My favorite gots to be ocarina of time though, I am more into 3d things then this 2d stuff. I do really like twilight and skyward sword but everyone seems to hate those. My second is legend of zelda wind waker. Mostly for the same reasons as ocarina of time. Hyrule warriors is really fun though, it's very short of a LoZ game. and I still have yet to play Majoras mask but that has to be a really good game at the most too.
