It's crazy that The Sims franchise is incredibly popular when it offers no escape from the boring routines of daily life. You'd think the game would have at least taught an entire generation of players how to build a successful career and budget effectively. Nope. The only thing valuable lesson The Sims taught us is: everyone is secretly a sociopath. Never swim in any of your friends' pools.

No one told me adulthood was going to involve replacing my broken sink. I mean, I guess I could have guessed from The Sims, but still.-- Mara Wilson (@MaraWilson) February 19, 2014
