Hobby #2 on my list – Mobile Gaming.

So if you’ve been watching TV, Hulu, or Netflix, you’ve likely been bombarded with “The Sim, Free to Play!” commercials like I have.  And well, after seeing a commercial numerous times I decided to submit to the mighty advertising and give it a try.  I wasn’t a big fan of the mobile version.  My wife, however, has spend hours upon hours on it already. She already has about six Sims and is looking to upgrade her house.

So obviously the first thing, like any normal person would do, she does is have her Sims look for jobs.  She was highly frustrated to find out that once you send your Sims to work they are LITERALLY gone for 7 hours and return with only $135.  She was devastated because at this rate she would never be able to remodel their houses with only the finest digital wallpaper Sims money could buy.

Upon fiddling around with other money making options in the game she discovers that if you buy a bag of seeds for $40, you can grow $300 of potatoes in a mere 2 hours!  That’s a $260 profit!  But this is where our story turns into something straight out of Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events. It always starts off innocent enough.  But it always ends in horror…

She tells all the Sims to quit their jobs.  She pools all their money together and buys a new plot of land with no house on it.  She then plants 6 dirt patches and calls all the Sim’s over.  Finally she commands each Sim to tirelessly working the field, 2 hours a a time to bring in $1,560 in just 2 hours instead of letting them have a social life and bathroom breaks at a real job which would only produce $918 (among the six of them) in 7 hours.

Notice my wife's Sims Slaving Farm. Complete with a fence on all sides. Also protected against anything that might hinder productivity: Tv, Computers, Chairs, Human Resources Department, Bathrooms breaks, Talking, Questioning their Supreme Leader... But they can have all the potato's they can eat*!

*Limited to one potato per day.
