The Wrong Side of the Pixels.

“When you create a person in The Sims 3, you can give them personality traits that determine their behaviour. Kev is mean-spirited, quick to anger, and inappropriate. He also dislikes children, and he’s insane. He’s basically the worst Dad in the world.” Oh, think twice — It’s just another day for you and me in Sims paradise: By way of Web Goddess, an english game designer is chronicling the misadventures of Alice and Kev, two Sims she’s created to be maladjusted and homeless. I haven’t played a Sims game since the original iteration in 2000 — sounds like it’s come pretty far afield.
