“How ‘The Sims’ Made Me a Homewrecker”

Filed under: pop culture,Treats — posted by Breakup Girl @ 11:11 am

We enjoyed this ruefully sweet essay by Sofi Papamarko in today’s Salon.com, in which she gets sucked into The Sims as an alternative to her — she felt — stalled single universe, which appeared to be late in delivering¬† her standard coupled-up fantasies:

It is impossible to overstate how astonishingly easily my dream life came to me, how addictively its rewards added up. At the beginning of the game, for instance, I was given a charming little house in a nice neighborhood. Given! It was handed to me! I didn’t have to scrimp or save or deal with real estate agents or even apply for a mortgage! Landing a terrific job was as easy as showing up to the town hall in a pair of tight leather pants. I told my boss a couple of jokes and was instantly rewarded with a promotion and a healthy raise. In real life, my neglected tomatoes wither on the vine, despite my best intentions. In the game, I harvested huge, succulent crops after watering them no more than twice. I became a master angler and a gourmet cook, whipping up red snapper and catfish gumbo as if I were the secret love child of Nigella Lawson and Bobby Flay. Everything was easy.

And then I met Walter.

Ooh! Read the rest to find out how virtual Walter — and Bernie, and Jack — help Sofi discover that her reality is pretty fantastic, after all.

    wants to understand this topic. You understand so much its almost
    tough to argue with you (not that I really would want to…HaHa).

  32. I think everything said made a bunch of sense.
    However, think about this, suppose you typed
    a catchier post title? I am not saying your information is not solid., however suppose you added a post title that makes people
    desire more? I mean Breakup Girl »
    “How ‘The Sims’ Made Me a Homewrecker” is a little vanilla.
    You might peek at Yahoo’s front page and note how they create post titles to get people to click.

    You might try adding a video or a picture or two to get readers interested about everything’ve
    got to say. In my opinion, it could make your blog a little livelier.
