Sims Community

A game that’s done an incredible job of building an online community is The Sims.

My wife is playing, and trying to get the kids into private school. To get into private school, you have to invite the headmaster over and show him what great parents you are – by having a nice house, making a greater dinner, and having kids with great grades. But the headmaster is not awarding her any points for for the meal – even though she’s making one of the best meals (Lobster Thermidor).

Searching for “Sims Headmaster Food” finds over 10 thousand pages.

I get more answers to this virtual question than I get for a lot of real world questions.
