Thank you so much for this!
The rules for this award are:
- Share the link of the blogger who has shown love to you by nominating you.
- Answer the questions.
- In the spirit of sharing love and solidarity with our blogging family, nominate 8-13 people for the same award.
- Ask them 3 questions.
Here are the question this time:
- What is one of your biggest in-game pet peeves?
In the Sims 3, the attraction system. I hate it so much! It gets in the way and makes random Sims send stupid love letters and ask married people out on dates and just in general gets in the way. I’m okay with an attraction system being in the game, but it should have been WAY better implemented.
In TS4, I’m not feeling the emotion-system a lot of the time. It’s too easy to manipulate and the feelings change too easily. Also I kind of don’t like how it makes my Sims’ feelings so obvious – although yeah, there is still much room for interpretation.
- What is one thing you’ve always wanted to do in game or in a Sims story, but haven’t yet?
Have Tad in Tango speak Finnish. 😀 Because considering his overly formal way of speaking, he would sound SO creepy in Finnish because he’d speak formal, written Finnish and very, very few native speakers speak in a way that’s anything close to formal Finnish (unless they’re making a speech or something… or in my case, for example, get nervous or sarcastic). So I imagine he’d sound creepily hilarious. This has a couple of major problems, though: first of all, nearly none of my readers could understand what’s going on or why it’s funny, as they haven’t really been exposed to Finnish. And secondly, in a written medium people DO usually speak Finnish more or less formally, so this whole joke wouldn’t work. So this is a thing that’s probably going to just stay in my head. Sigh…
Other things I might put here would probably be too spoiler-y so I guess I’ll leave those a mystery. 🙂
- If you could live in any one of the Sims worlds (i.e. base game, expansion, or custom), which would it be and why?
I really like Riverview from TS3, though I already live in a place like that (only bigger and slightly more urban) so I guess I should be more creative with this. Well, San Myshuno from TS4 has a super nice design (those mosaics, man!), and I like its multicultural feel. I imagine it has bunch of eco-shops and vegan food places for me too. Not to mention the flea market!
Okay, so there we go! I’ll try to get a Fey -chapter out soon. And start working on a new Tango -chapter and all. Have fun you guys! I wish you all the best!
