While we have to stay with us, many people are launched into the adventure Animal Crossing. Others have even downloaded or reinstalled the Sims 4.
It must be said that at the time of the confinement, all means are good in order to occupy our days. Even geeker to escape to a good time.
Naturally, some franchises are victims of their own success. In particular the new title of Animal Crossing : New Horizons “.
It must be said that the game had been expected for months already. That said, his exit is timely.
As for the Sims 4, the game is currently experiencing a second popularity, as if it were a new game. However, EA Games do not skimp on the promos to lure ever more players.
Therefore, some have been able to get the Sims 4 for a dozen eurosinstead of 39,99€ in normal times. What to do a hell of a savings !
But why, therefore, these two simulation-of-life appeal to them so much in this period ? Here are some elements of response.
The Sims 4 or play the real life during the containment
Many people regret not to be able to go out as before. That’s not a problem, the Sims 4, we can make a whole bunch of things that we can not do today.
At least, that is what the players are looking for, by killing the time to geeker on it. It is a way to keep the morale in these hard times, because the game is full of opportunities.
In addition to the more sadistic laughing to drown their sims by removing the ladder, many see it as a way to pass the time. It is, therefore, a way like another to continue to live, by proxy.
If it currently feels stuck between 4 walls, this was also the case of our companions virtual as it was 15 years ago. In fact, in the Sims 1, the name, our avatars could not leave their house except to go to work.
Does it remind you of anything ? Then, we could see them leave their home with the arrival of the opus ” Allowed out “ on consoles… The Sims had they predicted that we would need a certificate to do our shopping ?
This time, the roles are reversed. Our Sims can now go freely to party or take a walk in a park, so that we need a permit to get out !
