    Who can help me start this petition?

    I personally find The Sims to be exceptionally anoying and lacking in creativity. I would compare it to the rush of ads for Psychics a few years ago and all the coffee stands that infect cities now days.

    Nice sentiment, wrong approach. Start a petition to prevent any more Sims games period.

    We could do that instead. I have never played a sim game that I truly thought was original and good. I am of course referring to the genre of sim games and not to simulators.

    I'm sure many Mac-users enjoy Sim games such as SimCity and The Sims. I don't see why these games shouldn't come out for MacOS just because some people don't like them.

    I just think there a lame over worked genre. If they are going to do it they should do something new and inspiring instead of releasing a mod of a mod of a mod of a mod of a.......

    I didn't actually create this thread to stop them bringing over the sims games I did it more just to get a reaction from people. It's kind of an over worked piece of sarcasm. Okay!?

    The best solution is just not to buy the game if you dont like it. I dont like it much but I would not ban it. The Sims is the best selling game of all time and if the Mac does not get it, then it will do a lot worse than it is doing now. I know one person that wanted a Mac but almost didn't get one because someone in a PC shop said you can't get The Sims for the Mac. They did get a Mac in the end because I showed them you could get Sims for the Mac. Also it is a very popular game with the female demographic, aages 11-35. about 45% of people that play the Sims are female and it is one of the only game women actually play in large numbers, so I doubt it will get baned for this reason allone. The game market is already too male orientated.

    Then why'd you go through the trouble of making a post about it?

    Seems like a waste of time.

    To screw with ya. It's working isn't it.

    Also I saw the thread about the poll for The Sims Online and I thought to myself what about those of us that hate The Sims and hope they would just vanish from existence. Thus this thread was born and a whole new way to get people all worked up was formed.:D

    as much as I like the game it is kind of sad that people spend so much time nurturing their "family" and "interpersonal" relationships on the computer and ignore the real world

    you must be really bored eh? I say if you dont like something as meaningless as a video game then just dont buy/play it, I personally dont worry about what other people spend their money on or what they play as long as it's not hurting anyone.

    Oh and try reading a book with your spare time.....

    (just adding to your "trying to screw with ya.." sentiments.....)

    I just hate people that want to ban something that lots of other people like. As long as it does not do any harm they should be allowed to do it. There are some people that will try to ban anything that they find the slightess bit annoying. For example, in the UK people have tried to get the tennis to be shown on satelite or not shown at all because it often replaces more popular TV programmes if it over-runs. At the moment it is shown on the BBC, which everyone in the UK has access to, but if it was moved to another channel then a lot of the people that like tennis would not be able to watch it.

    What is really funny is that I figured the thread would die as soon as I admitted that I did it just to get people worked up but I was wrong. People are continuing to post about how they hate people for this or that because they don't like something they like or something. Well people let the thread die. It was a joke. Get it I was just trying to get a reaction. Some people are really dense.

    I am just trying to say why people get worked up against it, not trying to have a go at you.
