Nobody loves Kev

All adults in The Sims 3 have a lifetime wish. An ultimate goal that they want to achieve before the end of their life. Usually this is to reach the top of a particular career path, or become the best at a particular set of skills. When you create an adult Sim, you’re given a selection of lifetime wishes to choose from, which change depending on that Sim’s personality traits.

When I made Kev, choosing a lifetime wish was a little difficult. I knew that he was never going to be successful in a career, which meant that almost all of the options the game offered me weren’t going to be possible. The only lifetime wish available to him that I thought he could aspire towards while still remaining homeless was to become a ‘heartbreaker’. He wants to be the boyfriend of 10 different sims.

So while Alice is asleep on a bench somewhere, I send Kev to the park to try to find him some romance. However, due to either his inappropriate or insane trait, he turns up without his clothes.

Things don’t get off to a good start. He tries a pickup line.

That didn’t work either. We need an entirely new approach. For a moment I think Kev’s found a way to truly connect with someone when he makes a silly face at her, and she makes one back. Then she gets bored with his funny stories, so he talks to her about his conspiracy theories, and that really turns her off. She doesn’t like it when he ‘speaks madness’ either.

Bugger it. This is going nowhere. The only way we can salvage this relationship is for Kev to insult her appearance, slap her, and declare her an enemy in order to increase his mood.

Nobody loves Kev.

    My real name is Kev!

    Is this a foretelling of my future?

    This one was more of a narration of controlling a sim. It’s still good. And it’s amazing how the sims are basically creating a story.

    My stinky mad sim has the whole town in love with him and has over 100 children.
    Traits mean nothing in the game.
    There is nothing you can’t not do in the game with any sim, not matter what your traits, it’s just a matter of doing it slow or fast.
    This isn’t really a “game diary”.
    Its more a case of using sims imagery to aid a pretend story.

    I know all sims have a phone, but for the sake of the story, why would she have one if she’s homeless and has no money? ;)

      As others have pointed out, most people, even if homeless, will have some kind of mobile phone. It has to be a vital tool for trying to build a life with no permanent residence.

    I love insane Sims.

    Omg. Showing up at the park with no clothes on. That was scaring, but funny. xD

    What’s great about this blog is the writing. You explain things that are utterly hilarious as an impartial observer, like a scientist.

  16. 23 jack June 27, 2009 at 4:34 pm

    the first shot was perfectly placed

  17. 24 saw June 29, 2009 at 11:58 pm

  18. 25 nicollecrayola July 10, 2009 at 7:51 pm

  19. 26 GuardianDemon July 20, 2009 at 3:53 am

    His “shadow” looks to me like a pee stain.

  20. 27 cartoonfansparadise August 8, 2009 at 3:53 pm

    hahaha. the insane trait is what made him go there in his sleep wear.

  21. 28 Plasma_Ball1 October 1, 2009 at 1:27 am

    Where can I download that lot in the last picture?

  22. 29 douxdel April 7, 2010 at 9:32 pm

    Serves Kev right! Insane little wanker who doesn’t treat his daughter right.

    Anyways, I really like how this is turning out. Original and very intriguing. ^-^

  23. 30 Sam April 18, 2010 at 6:11 pm

    LOL Naked Kev!!!

  24. 31 Jess May 8, 2010 at 6:35 pm

    LOL!! Great chapter!

  25. 32 Karin April 14, 2011 at 4:17 pm

    I LOL’ed so hard!
    although I find it REALLY weird that my main sim has both the inappropriate and insane trait, yet she can keep a good relationship (minus the whole ‘s/he’s annoying’ part)

  26. 33 twinklestar25 October 1, 2011 at 8:39 pm

    LOL… Love the last picture of him standing alone, it made me laugh
