SummaryWhy is this so addictive?
The GoodYou don't see this kind of thing often. For those of you who haven't played it, another appropriate title would be "Sim Daughter". The objective here is to guide the daughter, and then depending on your actions, she will end up in one of several professions.
It's an original concept that is rarely seen anymore, especially in America. Somehow, this thing is strangely addictive, and you'll find yourself replaying, wondering what sort of outcome you'll get.
The BadIf you're like me, and know little or nothing about Japanese culture, you're going to be exposed to some strangeness.. most apparently in the weight/height ratio of the child. When I played, she turned out to be 17 years old, 5' 7" and 97 pounds. With these statistics she complained about being "too fat" and the game would not allow her to wear some of the fancier clothes. I had to slim her down to 87 pounds to resolve the problem.
There's also the whole Child Pornography issue. Yes, you will see naked cartoon preteen art. At no time are sexual acts depicted, but nudity is not exactly scarce. It's my understanding, though, that the North American versions have been censored, and that the art for that is simply not available.
