A few months ago I put The Sims 4 back into my gaming rotation in anticipation for the new Realm Of Magic DLC. If you follow my Twitter account at all you might have noticed my predaliction for making Sims based off of 90s sitcom stars, then forcing them down a lucretive career path of non-stop professional gaming. Many die in the process. Jerry Seinfeld died in a house fire one morning after trying to make a grilled cheese sandwich in between streaming sessions. His son George Costanza doesn’t make it either. A casualty of electrocution-while-fixing-a-laptop, George had taken over the family eSports business before being taken by the grim reaper. A commentary on eSports in a post-capitalist society? Perhaps.
But more importantly, I think wistfully, imagine how much better it would have been if they’d also been wizards. The Sims 4: Realm Of Magic is out today.
