I frequent a fairly well-known gaming e-zine/online forum. While I was checking up on a thread I created, I saw a thread about a new Sims 3 Pets Expansions. Since I’m fairly keen on the Sims 3, I entered the thread and found some truly idiotic responses but this was the topper:
MercurySteam: Who gives a crap about The Sims 3 when Gears of fucking War 3 comes out next week?
In other words; no, not really.
Now, this pissed me off to no end. Who is to say that Gears of War is worth more than the Sims 3? Is it because that Gears of Wars is about Über-testosterone and violencing the hell out of every living being?
Let’s analyse this.
So they’re very different games. One is a sci-fi game and the other is a simulation. They’re obviously not comparable so what makes one better than the other?
Simple answer? Nothing. It’s a matter of opinion. Although, it’s in the opinion of this writer than the Sims 3 is a better game than GoW. At least Sims 3 isn’t a dribbling, brain-dead love song to overly mucho men and how manly they can be.
