Play as yourself?

    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. :p

    Never made my simself, probably never will. Too self-conscious for that sort of thing and besides, I think my characters are more eccentric and interesting than myself lol.

    Mine is sortof based on me but better. I usually give her the name of my sign/birthstone or my part native heritage. Then I give her way more skills & traits that I don't have. Oh, & some secret occult traits. Sh don't tell anyone. :D:p

    Yea I've made a sim-self and played them, both in Sims 3 and 4. It's never my main save, I usually have a legacy or some other long-term challenge that I put more time into. But I usually keep my simself as a side save. I like making myself and my husband and letting our sims go on vacations that we can't afford to go on IRL, and building dream homes and "hotel" stays. :D

    All the time. I've never played a single save throughout all my Sims games that didn't include some version of me. In TS2, there was even an entire neighbourhood inhabited only by different versions of myself and their different families, pets, lovers, and what have you.

    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.

    I do, and I have the same feelings as misty4m and GrumpyGlowfish, although I've never made more than one of me at once. It's an interesting idea.

    Whenever I’m in CAS trying to create my simself I always get distracted and end up creating a whole different person. I’m sure at one point I probably did make myself, but I find making other people much more exciting haha.

    Although, one thing I do love adding to the game is my irl cat!!

    A little, no where near as much as 10 years ago however. Not necessarily even the main focus or someone I play, just having boring old me mixed in with a bunch of crossovers, weird face morph nightmare Sims and witches is an experience.

    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.
