Game Revolution: "Relaxing video games have their place in the world, just like everything does, I suppose. I just didn't get the concept of these life-sim games. I didn't understand why anyone would want to spend their time walking around in a virtual world doing mundane things like meeting neighbors or planting flowers when something perfectly fine called real life is going on for them just this side of the screen. I didn't understand it at first.
But then while I was away from home, I remembered the Harvest Festival. I had to get back to the game as fast as I could. Without hesitation, I got in my car and broke real traffic laws just to make it home in time for the festival, and it was then I realized that I had changed. I had been hooked somewhere along the way, and I hadn't even known."
