Considering our celebration of simulation games this month, we figured playing “Would You Rather” with an emphasis on the Sims franchise was appropriate. With everything you can do in the Sims games, there are plenty of ideas and what if scenarios for it. Starting off simple, Rachel, would you rather play the Sims by recreating yourself or creating brand new characters?
I would rather create myself. I like to give myself the life I believe I deserve which is an insta-writer and I can be a hermit. Kris, would you rather play the 100 Baby Challenge or challenge yourself to create every kind of ghost in The Sims?
I would go with the 100 Baby Challenge. Unlike most Sim players, I don’t particularly relish in the idea of killing everyone off on purpose, haha! That does sound interesting, though, to be honest. Rachel, would you rather play the Sims 3 with all of the expansion packs or just the base game of the Sims 4?
Um… I love the expansion packs, but there’s still a lot to do in The Sims within the base game. I think I would rather stick to The Sims 4 over The Sims 3. Similarly, would you rather only play The Sims 2 for the rest of your life or The Sims 4?
That’s actually a tough one. I enjoy the more controlled aspects of the Sims 2, but the Sims 4 definitely has more options when it comes to your sims. I think I would choose the Sims 4 as well, with its additional mechanics. Would you rather always have to find a creative way to kill your sims as soon as they become elders or would you rather be forced to finish playing only as them until they die naturally?
I’d rather play with my elderly sims until they die from old age… or they accidentally electrocute themselves. I’d rather squeeze as much gameplay from each of my sims as possible. Finally, if you were to get sucked in a Sims game would you rather be aware of it and be controlled by the player – whoever that may be – or would you rather be unaware that you’re living as a sim being able to make some of your own decisions but still being controlled by someone else for the most part?
Oh, God, that sounds like some sort of horror movie. I would probably rather be unaware and blissfully believe that I’m in control of my own life. It sounds rather much like today’s world, anyway, with my job and such, haha!
