Sims 3 on MBP.

When I go to play The Sims 3 on my 2012 13" MBP my computer gets very hot to the touch and the fans kick on. It is so hot I can't touch it. Then while I'm playing the game it starts to freeze but it looks like I'm still playing since objects like the radio still have the music notes coming out of it. What is going on with my game? I have been playing the Sims for many years and I have never seen a problem like this before. Help?! Please!

I guess you have not been playing Sims 3 for that many years on the 2012 Macbook Pro. But if you have not experienced this much heat on your current 2012 model before, it could most likely be caused by dust build up inside your Macbook Pro.
