I think it would be nice to allow those with a hancicap have a sim that is truly like them. i dont think it would be offensive to add this to the game. its actually offensive to NOT have it.
Yes that is right to them (the disabled) its offensive not to have it yet we can have gay sims? That seems almost as dumb as getting conversational over a doll that does what some babies do with their parents. I want disabilities.
And how exactly would EA animate a deaf Sim to behave any differently from a hearing Sim?
Given that the game is primarily visual and sound is secondary to gameplay does it really matter? Use your imagination.
i was reading this thread 'til page three. One thing i would like to say is I have known many people who were deaf, blind, bioplar, and myself asperger symdrome are able to as those without disablities. I would love to see sims with disablities in the game. There are many ways a blind person can see and a deaf person can hear. Just because they can't do those things the way most people them doesn't mean they can't. The sims would not be any different.
oh god... a Sim in a wheelchair is one thing, but a deaf and/or blind Sim is just taking it a bit far. :roll:
