Yes, I remember when computers in your home were a new thing and I was eager to experiment with all that the machine could do. For me - and so many others - The Sims was our first venture into a new virtual world.
That's right - you could create a character and live a fantasy life. For example, I could be a radio announcer on a popular station, marry a beautiful woman, and live in a vibrant, downtown city.
Wait, that's my real life. In "The Sims," I could play guitar on the toilet or get the plague from a guinea pig! That's just some of the weird stories shared by a Sims developer in this wonderful post.
