The Sims 3 Competition

Posted by GG Goblin On November - 16 - 2010

After a long wait, The Sims 3 has finally arrived on the consoles. We have a spare Xbox360 copy to give away to one lucky reader.

 
In The Sims 3, the player creates a character, or a whole family, and goes about everyday life whilst trying to fulfill their Sims needs and wishes. As one of the most popular video games ever made, The Sims series is now in it’s third incarnation and has spawned numerous expansions and content packs.

 
With this latest version on the console, Players will be able to create their Sim and control them within a living neighbourhood. The addition of the new Karma Powers will spice things up by allowing the player to bless or curse their Sim, all in the name of fun.

  108. Jamie-Lee Beacher Said,

    Players can choose from a good selection of careers in The Sims 3. Which career, either in the game or not, would you want to choose for your Sim?

    I would want my sim to be able to pick a career in the games industry such as a games designer, this is becuase I like like games myself and would allow me to pick it for female aswel as male gender sims. This would repersent somewhere that I want to get more involed in in the future years to come. It also is a unusual to have a game with a games career in.
