GI: If you are the kind of person who has trouble choosing a career, The Sims 3: Ambitions might cause you a small panic attack. Not only does it add five new career paths to the base game, but after following your sims to work and experiencing all the hijinks they get into while on the clock, you might never want to get a real job.
Just like the original Sims turned everyday life into a joyous waste of time, Ambitions makes work a fruitful experience in play. The expansion helped me confirm my childhood suspicions that firefighters have the coolest job in the world (next to Top Gun's fighter pilots). The game’s firehouse is filled with so many cool things to explore that I pretty much moved in. Seriously, I don’t think I went home my first week on the job – now that’s dedication.
