Little Computer People

from the there-they-go dept

I have to admit that I’ve never played the Sims, though, I can clearly see how it could become addictive (which is part of the reason I’ve never played it). The Guardian has an article that looks at the history of the Sims and suggests that many people in the gaming industry never thought it would succeed because they didn’t understand it. Watching “little computer people” run around your screen didn’t seem like the type of game people would buy.
