14+ Times 'The Sims' Was All Of Us IRL

Diply 17 Jul 2018

Anyone who's played any version of The Sims can tell you that a lot of unexpected things can happen — much like real life. I guess the difference is that real-life people don't tend to glitch into horrific nightmares, the likes of which Tim Burton couldn't imagine.

But for all the random, ridiculous ways that The Sims can simplify or distill real life, there are moments that are not only hilarious, but absolutely relatable. Let's see if we can't find some aspects of our own lives in this digital world.

1. First, you gotta think about who you really are.

And the fact that they even have these personality traits to choose from is pretty telling. I mean, this list alone describes over half my friends and myself. Can they add "attention seeker?" Perfect.

2. Yeah, I'm a heavy sleeper whenever I'm not actually supposed to be sleeping!

When it comes to getting enough rest at night, I can't count the times I've just stood through my bed, thinking of my house or da Vinci's artwork.

3. It's tough to make friends out there, okay?! Lola is doing her best!

So, yes, the new friend is technically a ceiling fan, but that should still be chalked up as a win these days!

4. Okay, this one just hurts a little.

I'm brave enough to admit that my dance moves probably look even worse than this, but it's a party! I am not responsible for such seductive movements after three or four vodkas.

5. Ah, yes, the ol' Taco Bell dash. I've been there too many times to count.

Not the most flattering moment in life, but it happens to the best of us.

6. Listens to My Chemical Romance once.

We all have an inner goth/emo kid just waiting to break out — I don't care how old you are. Embrace that dark side!

7. Tragic that in this day and age, we still push these standards.

I mean, how are you even supposed to get the eyeliner just right to make your eyes pop like that?

8. Then again, it is good to have goals from time to time.

They say picturing your ideal self will help you to achieve that body. I'm not judging what anybody's "ideal self" may be.

9. There's a lot to be said about inner beauty. Apparently you can't have it both ways.

Hey, I don't make the rules of the fairy kingdom, I just make fun of 'em.

10. It can definitely be awkward when you first try new things.

You're not going to get it right on the first try, but you get back up on that horse and try again! Or, you might just defy all physics and manage to stay on the horse somehow.

11. When you start taking on new duties at your job and have no idea what you're doing.

Whatever your job is, I'm sure you've had to do something that was totally out of your element. Maybe not this extreme, but still!

12. I'm no handyman myself, so I can relate.

In fact, I can definitely understand being so frustrated that you end up crawling in the sink and smashing your head into a mirror.

13. Sometimes you just don't know when the right moment is gonna pop up.

Maybe this is just one of those incredibly romantic proposals where they hide the ring in the food?

14. For the rest of us, though, dating can be very tough.

Like when you've wanted to go on that first date for so long that you just skip the much-needed trip to the emergency room!

15. I mean, that's gotta sum it up right there.

Whether it's a bill payment or putting out your burning baby, everyone procrastinates now and then. Most of the time, things work out on their own...not a burning baby, but you know.

16. And, of course, social responsibilities. Those can be skirted more often than not.

Yeah, I could be out there talking about phones with my friend and his terrible haircut, OR I could read a book and forget that noise!
