The Sims is a life simulation video game series, where the player creates virtual people called “Sims” and places them in houses and helps direct their moods and satisfy their desires. Players can either place their Sims in pre-constructed homes or build them themselves. Sometimes players get so engrossed in the game that it kind of becomes hard to differentiate between the game and real life. The players design the Sim version of themselves the same way they’ve always wanted to be. Therefore, the attachment. I mean, I’ve groomed my Sim more than I’ve ever groomed my own self.
Here’s a list of some hilarious Tumblr posts about the Sims.
