And now, a heartwarming Christmas story.

So my brother (Luke, age 10) got a copy of "The Sims: Bustin' Out" (or something like that) for Christmas. He was quite excited. He loads up the game...

His character appears in a nightclub. Some of the female characters start hitting on him, saying things like "Come and kiss me" and "I can make your dreams come true". The whole family exchanges glances and we begin to question allowing him to play this at all.

Luckily, we've found out that there are more... appropriate places for the Sims to hang out. Like the house. We'll see how this all plays out.

(This ten-year-old also informed me, when I opened Halo 2, what an awesome game it is. So we'll see what my parents actually do about it.)
