I’ve been getting posts together for when I’m at E3 in a month or so and I’ve noticed a marked increase in the number of “pose boxes” that are cropping up for download.
While there’s still a TON of custom content being made that has to do with clothing and objects and such, “story telling” objects seem to be gaining ground. From “clutter” to very specific poses like lovers’ poses, I can’t help but wonder if the average Sims 3 player is actually playing the game or if they’re using the game to make machinima or to take pretty pictures.
I know when I play, I tend to get sucked into decorating the lot and customizing clothing and seem to forget the whole point of Sims 3 is that it’s a game…that I’m supposed to play.
I don’t remember having this problem with Sims 2 and I don’t know if it’s just me evolving as a Sims player or if it’s the general culture that’s been built around Sims 3.
When you play, what do you do? Have you gotten more into the machinima and videos and pictures or do you still play and interact with the sims you’ve created?
