I play as me made my BF and my BFF in game too haha, and our cats! I think its fun, cause I can live the life I want in game, it's not weird, its part of the experience of a simulation. I can think back to a few Black Mirror episodes where their avatar was the exact same as them in real life.
This. I made my myself, as well as my boyfriend, & we live in a house that we wouldn’t be able to afford in real life, along with a dog that we’re hoping to have one day, haha. My boyfriend is always amused when I tell him all of the silly things that our simselves do.
While this may sound extremely narcissistic, I don't think it is. I'm not a fan of my real self or my real life, but The Sims gives me the opportunity to pretend that I'm an awesome person living an awesome life. The only problem is, I can't decide what exactly that should look like, and some things are mutually exclusive. Do I live in an old-fashioned witch's cottage in the woods, or a futuristic apartment similar to the ones on the Citadel in Mass Effect? Am I a professional novelist or an astronaut? Is my boyfriend an angel or an android? So many questions!
The entire point of my neighbourhood of simselves was to figure out which was the perfect life of my dreams, but I still don't know. So I'll probably keep thinking up different versions of myself until I die.
Something wicked this way comes!
I don't use MCCC.
Edit: so I did. Never mind 🤦🏻♂️
marry my sim Dad (sortof based on my real life Dad RIP) get married & have baby me (sortof).
Although, one thing I do love adding to the game is my irl cat!!
Exception includes the Sims 1's Get a Life mode on console. The story begins with your own mom yelling for you to get out of bed to get a job and move out already. If that didn't make Sim-Me more relatable for younger me to play, I don't know what wouldn't.
