You guys are probably going to laugh, but I almost stopped playing Sims after I got Tropico.
I mean, now that I know about all the cool features of Tropico I go back to Sims and expect to find it there as well, but I don't.
"Hey, what do you mean their needs don't have importance weights? That's too simplistic!"
"I really hate this sim. Nobody should be this annoying. Maybe I should toss him into the dungeon. Oh, right, can't do that..."
"Hey, my sim's unhappy because he can't afford a wide-screen TV to have fun. I should raise his pay. Err, right, not up to me anymore. This is not fun!
Yeah, I know, they're different games and I shouldn't compare them, but I still find Tropico so much more fun. And to think I spent $50 on The Sims and got Tropico for only $8. Well, that's just plain unfair.
Come think of it, I should probably buy the expansions, even if they don't add anything. PopTop deserves more than $8 for this gem.
