I imagine that parents get struck with a revelation in the process of rearing a child that helps them appreciate the enormity of the task before them. I say “imagine” because I’ve never had a child. At least, a real one. But I was struck by that revelation recently thanks to a small, weird Nintendo game of all things.
The Sims 4 will have no toddlers. None. You can look in ball pits, on precariously high tables, at Lego-eating conventions—anywhere. You will not find them. Many players are upset. How will the game work without that crucial stage of development? Like this.
It's genius, what arfmoochikncheez has discovered. All he does to get his kid to stop throwing a tantrum is ask her to do something completely unrelated to what's happening at the time, and boom! The tears are gone. Magic. Also, hilarious.
