JUST GO AROUND THE CHAIR. IT DOESN'T NEED TO BE THIS BIG OF AN ISSUE.

1. When you can't customize your Sim just right and it ends up looking nothing like you.

2. When you have a really awesome story going, but then one of your Sims ages up or something happens and they end up looking like this:

"Well there goes that dramatic story line I spent 10 FREAKING HOURS ON. Whatever."

3. When your Sim gets stuck on something but there's literally NOTHING in front of them.

So you just sit there yelling at your screen. "JUST GO AROUND IT. STEP OVER IT. SOMETHING."

4. Two words: Free will.

"Why are you playing video games, Carl? You should be working on your mechanical skill. Shelly, you just took a shower, you don't need to take- CARL, YOU'RE GOING TO MISS WORK GET OUTSIDE TO THE CARPOOL."

5. That feeling of accomplishment you get when your Sim gets a bunch of money and you didn't have to use any cheat codes.

Normally, your Sim is only a control+shift+C, motherlode away from being a millionaire.

6. Wishing the Sims 2, 3 and 4 would use the music from the original Sims.

If you don't know what I'm talking about, take a listen to the magical soundtrack.

7. Trying to make all your Sims leave the room when a fire starts, but they keep running back in and pointing at the fire.

"Yes, I know there's a fire, now get outside before you catch on fire....aaaand you're on fire. I don't even feel bad for you."

8. Really wanting to buy another expansion pack, but not being sure if it'll be worth the $20.

"I mean, I don't really need it. I already have The Sims Late Night and The Sims University, BUT LOOK HOW CUTE THE KITTIES ARE! That's it. I need it."

9. You see all these awesome pre-made houses so you try to make one, but it always ends up looking like this:

"It looked really great in theory."

10. When your Sim has a baby and you realize that they may not have been cut out to be parents.

"The baby is on fire? Well then, I better play a racing game on the computer!"

11. And then you're not entirely surprised when that baby turns into a jerk.

How rude.

12. Saying to yourself, "I'm going to take my Sims' relationship slow this time."

But then your Sims end up dating, getting engaged, getting married, moving into a new house, and getting pregnant within a Sim day. Oops.

15. You wish they would have offered Simlish as a second language in school because you actually know plenty of words and phrases from playing for hours on end.

I can still hear the tune the children hum in The Sims Deluxe. You totally know what I'm talking about. Narbo Puhzed!
