Gwendall Posted September 9, 2010 Report Share Posted September 9, 2010 One of the fun aspects to simulations, particularly life simulations, is becoming part of the story through your avatar. I'm curious, who do you like to play as? For instance, in a first play through of just about any game like this I tend to make myself. Well as close as the system will allow. When confronted with a system with negative traits, it gives you a good opportunity to look at and learn more about yourself as your story is told through the developer's world. A few times I sink, but overall the challenge of staying somewhat true to yourself despite what the world throws at you I find fun! It's also very interesting noting the concessions my character makes to cope with problems that I might not be able to overcome acting as I do. A tinge more diplomacy, study a bit harder, and sometimes just taking a chance. Most of the time, just that single run through will burn me out on a game since it's such an involved process. After that though, I do like to create a character and lore. Making a game within a game by creating a different moral center and skill set and trying to live through someone else's rules.
