What about over-eating? I was told that the sims can get obese but they get to that stage of fittnes (which isn't fit at all) and then if they keep eating they still won't die. It's what happens in real life you know.

I like the idea of over-eating...

But before anyone argues that they "wouldn't want to be playing their game and then a message came up saying 'Your sim has died from over-eating'", there could be a moodlet and a timer like there is for stuff like drowning and starving. To make the moodlet go away, you have to do some exercise. If you keep eating and not exercising, then you will die. The timer could be a couple of days or something.

Just so you people don't have to sqeeze any of these thoughts out of your puney minds here's a lot of things that are not realistic about the Sims 3:

Running in high heels, females having their monthly's (you know what I mean), wearing the same clothes everyday unless you change it, there's no drugs, no booze, no preschool for toddlers, no washing machiens, no floods, no wagging, no murders, no guns, no mugging, no internet bullying and heaps others.

Would you like me to continue?

murders, guns and mugging would make the game "M" rated.

Since Sims 3 is after all, a LIFE SIMULATOR, I think it would only be right that it be more realistic.

...and terrorists and breaking your legs/arms/ribs and being bitten by a wild animal. You could write a whole book about this!

You're obviously very hard to please, Nancy!

It could all be put into an expansion pack so you have the choice if you want it in the game or not. That way if parents didn't want their children seeing car crashes and whatnot then they just wouldn't buy the expansion.

There you go! Problem solved

But the game is already M rated because of woohoo, naked (well, blurred to be picky) bodies and kissing that sort of stuff. But kids still buy it.

Its not M rated up here in North America. Its rated Teen

for Crude humor
sexual themes
and
violence


only if you in down under (and you are there in Down Under I checked) is it rated M since down under doesn't have a Teen rating.

It's rated 12+ here in the UK, but a lot of kids who are younger buy it.

Anyway, back to the thread, I think the game's really good as it is. After all, most people buy games for fun and to escape from the real world and war/disabilities/car crashes/other depressing things.

I know some people would want those things though, so having it in an expansion pack is a good idea.

No some stuff like disabilities could be in a expansion pack but other stuff that is Mature like can't be add to an expansion since all the expansions tie together but 1 mature ep equals to the whole series being Mature.
