The Sims 3: World Adventures
Ever since The Sims 3 came out earlier this year, I have been hooked. The series has always been an addictive time-suck, but the additions and improvements made to the latest life simulator have kept me occupied far more than I would like to admit. Even if I put the game away for a few weeks or a month or two, I kept finding myself coming back, my head full of new ideas and unexplored possibilities—an awesome beach house that needed to be built, a young married couple that was one half evil child-hater and the other good, family oriented new parent; and the poor young woman who eventually raised a family and became extremely wealthy from her ever-growing garden. Yes, there were plenty of things to do in The Sims 3, but eventually, I did start to feel like I had done almost everything. Luckily, The Sims 3: World Adventures provided me with not only some new furnishings for my home and new outfits for my Sims, but gameplay different from any other Sims expansion before it.
