Play simulation games - be someone or something else
Want to be another person for a while? We've got hundreds of ways for you to do just that! Simulation games let you step into someone else's shoes and try out a new life. Whether that's in terms of career, dating, skills, or something else. One thing most of these games have in common is time pressure: you need to get the job done as quickly as possible to keep as many people as happy (and paying you) as possible – see, simulator games are just like real life, indeed!
Sometimes life simulation games give you the chance to play a role you'd never want to play in real life – learn what it's like to live the Douchebag's Life or be a Douchebag's Chick, without the pain of actually having to be that person. (It's just a simulation – everybody chill.) Simulator games will also let you try on a new job for size, running an airport in Frenzy Airport 2, running burgers and other snack foods to tables in Go Fast Cooking Sandwiches and Cinema Panic, or trying out the Tattoo Artist profession. Build cities in the Epic City Builder series, learn dentistry in Doctor Teeth, or survive killer robo-toys in the Five Nights at Freddy's games.
And of course there are also dating simulation games, like Miraculous Hero Kiss, where two superheroines might hide their faces, but they can't hide their passion for each other. Or, on the naughtier side, Emma Cheating on Liam lets you play the girl who wants to have her cake and eat it too. (Poor Liam.)
So step into a simulator and be someone else for a few minutes or a few hours; you decide how long you want your break from lame-O reality to last.
