I think what allowed me to stop playing the original Sims was the realization that I was spending a lot of effort keeping my Sims diligent about their chores, all while my entropy was turning my own domicile into primordial soup. Perhaps it was more of a chili. It matters little. I've been playing Sims2 occasionally and I'm feeling confident that it's similar enough to the first that it won't hook me anew. It is, however, new enough to warrant a thorough exploration. Some of the new events and animations are very amusing and I'm glad I decided to check it out.
Hmmm. In other news, this is likely my last post at GWJ. This place is incredible and I've had more fun than anyone really has a right to without getting a hangover. I just wanted to thank Certis and Elysium for making room at the table for me. I'd like to thank the rest of GWJ staff, Pyro, Spunior, ColdForged, Hoochie and 1Dgaf for raising the bar with every post. And I'd sure as hell like to thank you readers and forum folk, even you lurkers, don't think I don't see you back there in the shadows. My Xbox Live buddy list is a who's who of smart and funny gamers who actually like to play games. That, alone, is proof enough that GWJ is a success and is only getting better. I'll always keep a special place in my attic for all of you. Wow, that sounds terrifying if you don't know the context, huh? If you don't know it, just ask, someone will point the way.
