Wow, can’t believe the Nintendo 3DS is only a week away. No money to get it, but I may get the game (when it drops in price).
The customisation is one of the things that always helps suck people into the game, and in the Sims 3, you can stamp your own personal touch on everything, from your Sim, to your bedsheets. In terms of customising your character, each and every Sim you create will be different – just like people in real life. When you put them together, you can choose from a number of individual traits that’ll shape how they react to things in the world, and affect their chances at everything, from getting the girl to fall for them, to simply not managing to miss the bus in the morning. Of course, you can always lean in if things start to go too far wrong (or right, if you’re a sadist), but sometimes it’s fun to just watch them do it themselves.
