Summary: It's not hard to understand the popularity of The Sims - the chance to play God, create characters and use them to tell stories has a certain appeal. While it's fair to say that it's a 'love it or be indifferent to it' kind of game, The Sims 3 builds on everything fans love about the franchise.

After thoroughly enjoying my time in New Orleans, I'm finally ready to go see what Edward Kenway has to offer.
Excerpt: The Sims 3 Midnight Hollow is the newest addition to the Sims 3 franchise and includes tons of great new content to explore. Welcome to Midnight Hollow, a dark and haunting town, that will lure you in with its beautiful yet disturbing charm. The town is buried deep within the mountains and radiates gloom with its dark colors.
Excerpt: A lot of changes have happened since we saw the very first creation of a sim type game called Little Computer People way back in the 80′s. Maxis took hold of sim games by the scruff of the neck when they first produced Sim City and have never looked back.
