As we’re all feeling like our lives are not quite in control right now, and we’re (mostly) stuck at home and being told what to do and when… you could say that your life feels like a bit of a simulation. Yeah, that’s a really crap link isn’t it?
For this episode, Tom is taking Morgan back to the year 2000 and his teenage obsession with The Sims – the first iteration of the hugely popular Sims video game franchise.
We go through the first Sims era, its creation from depressing circumstances, its long list of expansion packs, what the heck Simlish is, and why it’s not a great party unless Drew Carey turns up.
