The Internet Generation

The latest Sims 4 expansion reduced me to tears

There is a little something to be reported for the power of nostalgia. A lot of of us in excess of a selected age have developed up with an appreciation for early video game titles that’s possible shed on the younger generation, and I come to feel that The Sims franchise is specially notable for this if you do not establish as straight. The newest enlargement pack ‘Wedding Stories’ delivers a host of marriage ceremony-unique characteristics, alongside positioning a exact same-sex couple at the front of most of its advertising and marketing, and as a queer lady that’s grown up actively playing the franchise from its to start with base sport, I was ecstatic. 

If your eyes started rolling at that, this piece in all probability is not for you – the Sims franchise is, of course, beloved outside the house of the LGBTQIA+ local community, but it retains a unique spot for queer and curious children who ended up capable to examine their sexuality, and I’m not going to shy absent from that.
