With the release of 'The Sims' in 2001' the gaming world was tantalized with a new found power. We could control the Sims we only wondered about in Sim City. But with the game, came an evil that plagued the world for as long as one can remember. Addiction. For many, it became an escape from theire problems. It was a fascade we could hide behind as our real lives crumble around us. But now... a tale is told of a new evil, an evil that could upset the delicate balance of lives. The world of 'The Sims' is now being put online. Now tens of thousands can interact with tens of thousands more. This will prove too much for many. They will decide that this electronic world is better than their own and the latter shall be neglected. Girlfriends will have left, jobs will have been lost, and lives will have been broken before many wil realize their addiction. And for Lowang's sake, speaking as one who will also but the game with the rest of the "modernized" world... PLAY RESPONSIBLY.

Molotov, Welcome to the world of FOG, quite a reasonable first topic.

OhÖ you think that Simís is addictive, wait till you have spent a week at FOG, then the true addiction will start.

Donít say I didnít warn youÖ
