People LOVE The Sims. The best selling PC game of all time, The Sims allows people to watch their Sim characters go through their simulated daily lives - eating, sleeping, socializing, etc. Sounds a lot like reality TV, right? Both have manufactured drama, and satisfy our desire to eavesdrop on other's lives. Is Sims the ultimate reality television show? Watch the episode and find out!
