The Sims Medieval seems custom made for a player that loves managing resources and time efficiently, but was chagrined by the directionless of The Sims. Using RPG elements like inventories and quests to tell funny stories with light fantasy elements and shape the life of your kingdom is a great way to introduce structure to tried-and-true gameplay. It’s not a perfect game by any means, but The Sims Medieval does enough right to keep sucking time from my life into managing an imaginary one.
