On Sunday, National Public Radio’s On the Media had a story about a computer game know to over a million players as The Sims. Touted as the #1 PC game, The Sims is a simulation game about a world that sounds very close to our own. An objective of the game is to acquire material goods, though I’m not sure this is a end goal is (?). There are many interesting things about this game (e.g., it appeals to females as well as males and it’s widespread popularity). It’s going to be interesting to see how this game and others based on this game evolve in the future, especially as the creators of The Sims get ready to release their online version (coming in the very near future).
