The Sims 3

Does anyone else have this game besides me? It's SO addicting! I haven't pulled an all-nighter since college eight years ago, but here I was trying to get my Sims, Kirill and Tysyacha, engaged before I went to bed! *so tired*

Here is a video I posted on YouTube of my first two Sims, Lisa and Dan:

I'd love it if you'd 1) rate, 2) comment and 3) show me your Sims!

Yeah, I love it. I've been a Sims fan for years, but I know that this one got a lot of negative reviews from users because of Storyline Progression. Which is really stupid; of course your Sims will move! How else will the city stay afloat?

A few of my Sims: Scarlett, Breanne, and Scarlett's grandchildren.

I mostly play Sims 3 for the house editor. Right now I'm working on a fortress type home. With towers and stuff. I love the new building options (haven't played the Sims since the original and a couple of it's "expanions").

Hooray for cheat codes.

I've got it, but it's so friggin' buggy that I decided to take a break until a patch comes out. It kinda seems to me that the Sims 2 were overall much better.

I started to play, but I didn't even get through sim creation, takes way too freaking long. I know they look much better in this game and I like how your attributes or whatever aren't based on your zodiac sign this game, but overall I think sim creation was better in 2. I could actually make one that looks like me.

Fixed!

I got this game but it kinda annoyed me. It just wasn't co-operating.

Thanks, Tysyacha! I wish I could make some videos myself, but I'm having too much troubles with my graphics card (getting it replaced next week). I can hardly run it on all high, but I'm just too used to playing it that way. Funny how I still play The Sims 1 and don't have a problem with the graphics at all. Although, speaking of the Jacuzzi, I do miss it. That and the piano.

Just played with Bella and Mortimer recently: Clickity Click and click.

How cute are they?! *HUGS to both* By the way...NICE DIGS!!!

By the way, has anyone made a mod to "unpixellate" your Sims in the game?

I'm not exactly sure if I know what you mean; I use these for my Sims, except for the face textures. Didn't really like them myself. And speaking of mods, there is also these new default eyes. And have you used the Awesomemod? It helps out with little quirks inside the game; such as spontaneous births with no father, or mother, and other little bugs like that.

Helpful! 
These games are too time-consuming for me. They are pretty fun, though.
