I saw a promo the other day for the latest expansion pack installment in the Sims virtual reality game series. This one is called The Sims™ 3 University Life, so naturally, it caught my eye. I haven’t played it, but the Sims 3 promo trailer gives quite a bit of detail about what gamers can expect as they build a college experience without setting foot on campus. Unfortunately, it is apparent from the dorm room scenes that the rendered residence life furniture isn’t exactly up to University Loft standards. Thus, The Sims 3 University Life isn’t as realistic as it could be; after all, with University Loft student dorm room furniture on about 1,200 campuses, it IS reality for tens of thousands of college students across America and around the world. And for good reason(s):
University Loft furniture for dorm rooms and residence halls is made from solid wood. Not just any old solid wood, either; it’s solid environmentally-farmed hardwood, and it’s stronger than northern Red Oak! Throw in University Loft’s state-of-the-art college furniture construction techniques and you get real quality. Nothing “virtual” about it.
And if you want to configure your real-life dorm room to your liking, University Loft student furniture makes it easy. Thanks to our modular furniture designs and the Tool-less system for University Loft student bunk beds, the possible student room furniture configurations are virtually (there’s that word again) endless. Can The Sims 3 University Life boast that kind of customization potential?
Anyway, if you want to build a virtual life, The Sims 3 University Life takes you to a make-believe campus. If you want to get a real education in a real university with the best college furniture, choose one of the hundreds of colleges with University Loft furniture in their residence halls.
