Character creation menus will be the death of me. I love pouring my soul (and my time) into crafting the best-looking cat mage in Skyrim. Or a Commander Shepard in Mass Effect. Or a Jew in South Park: The Stick of Truth. The more complicated the interface and range of options is, the better.
In other words, this new trailer for The Sims 4 that details all the ins and outs of its character creation system is pretty much my dream come true:
Impressive, right? But when it comes to character creators, is it possible to go too far?
I for one couldn't watch this without thinking about the hours of my life that will soon be spent gradually sliding a nose-length meter back and forth, back and forth, back and forth...
At some point, I'll have to overcome my obsessive tendencies just so I can actually play the game.
Too much of a good thing? Maybe. But I certainly hope not, because I don't think I'm going to be able to hold myself back once The Sims 4 finally comes out.
