The Lovers: Whoever you want


If The Sims is ultimately a social reality simulator, then I suppose it could be argued that whatever relationships brew in the game are about as authentic as they can get. Considering that you've got to make the Sims spend time with each other, work through their incompatibilities, and all sorts of other mundane things, it's actually pretty realistic. Sure, not everyone's true love dies because someone took the ladder out of the pool, but all the steps of courtship are present in the old digital dollhouse.
