I'll admit, I've never played the Sims. When the original was popular, I was not impressed by the graphics, so I never played. I see they've spruced things up a bit, but it looks so much like the Shrek movies, I keep expecting to hear Donkey yapping away during this trailer. But no, that fine voice-over is clearly Patrick Stewart. Glad he's getting some work out of this.
Maybe if I have a job by this spring I'll be able to check it out...otherwise, I'll be late to this mock party too. Better late than never, though!
