Agreed lol. My girlfriend is addicted to it and feels the need to tell me how her sims are going on a regular basis - she even texts me if they do some 'amazing'...so riveting!

Someone needs to make a version of The Sims where your sims go to war. It'll be a gradual transition from your sims being drafted, to full on FPS combat. The next thing you know Battlefield 3 online will be dominated by former casual gaming chicks!

I don't know why people say finding girls that play videos game as impossible. Most of the girls I know actually do play video games, or enjoy them.

You just have to find the right girls

They do this all the time.

I recall reading about a study that concluded that men like looking at breasts...
