A while back I wrote about Sims 3 Legacies getting me excited to play Sims 3 again and I played my heart out. After a pretty long Sims 3 drought/burnout, I finally was enjoying the game again. I’ve been running only the base game and Pets with a Stuff Pack or two and some custom content.
I was having a blast.
And then EA announced the newest Sims 3 expansion pack: Showtime and I just got so damn tired. Maybe it’s because I write about games–not just Sims 3–and I know things have to keep moving forward but it’s just so freakin’ endless. Just when you start to enjoy a game, another comes out and there’s something new to try.
I’m usually game to hop on that wagon and go along for the ride but Showtime just leaves me feeling…blah. It’s that “blah” feeling that makes me wonder if it’s not so much the marching on of games that has been getting me down as it is the next expansion.
Showtime doesn’t DO it for me. No fuzzy feelings. No “HOLY SHIT! THAT’S AMAZING!!!” moments. Know what would give me that feeling?
If this bear was real and not just a prop:
Basically I’m waiting on a trick performing bear. Give me that and I might be drug by my the heels out of this funk.
