As The Sims Turns

By Deane Barker on July 2, 2003

Wired News: Every Sims Picture Tells a Story: Players of The Sims online are using the “family albums” to create graphic novels of sorts:

“[Nicole] Service, known in the Sims community as nsknight, has created several albums that are highly ranked by her peers. Among them is her six-part Vanderbilt series, which took her months to write and stage and which revolves around the story of three sisters separated by the murder of their mother.

Other users have conjured up such storylines as a young woman’s drug addiction and recovery; an African-American girl’s adoption by a white family; and, naturally, poor girls falling in love with rich guys. “

It reminds me of Red vs. Blue, to which I am utterly addicted.
