This is a life simulation game in which players can customize and control avatars (Sims) through several stages of life and its daily activities. Players are free to pursue a variety of goals as they observe and attempt to influence and nurture families of Sims. These avatars often interact socially, which can sometimes lead to mild flirtation or more intimate encounters. Players can choose to “try for a baby” or “WooHoo” with another Sim. These two actions cause the selected avatars to jump into bed and go under the covers... the covers do move around a little bit, (but it's not very inapropriate considering you really can't see anything) until confetti bursts over the bed. Sims characters need to maintain their health and hygiene and do so by eating, exercising, bathing, and using the toilet, which is depicted by a blurred, pixilated effect and trickling sounds. Avatars can also vomit, emit flatulence, and wet themselves if no toilet is available or offered. As in real life, Sim characters can die of old age; they can also die as a result of neglect or starvation. Certain animations depict the avatars dying in fires, drowning in pools, and getting electrocuted by household appliances. My child is only 10 years old and I do not find this as an inapropriate game for my child. I bought Sims 3 at Walmart and when I was at the register I asked the Gentleman at the register if the sexual things on here were inapropriate and he said "No, I belive it is labeled that way to be on the safe side with some of the parents that are more protective of what their kids see."
