Agreed, it seems that no matter what choices you make you're going to get fucked one way or another. Aside from all of the bullshit scenarios/choices others have mentioned, here are more that pissed me off: -I specifically chose to live as close to work as possible in case I couldn't afford/something happened to my car. Sure enough, something did. Yet the game didn't give me the choice to walk/ride to work despite the fact that's exactly why I chose to live so close in the first place. -I elected to pay $300 dollars to get my car fixed (Which, according to the scenario broke down while I was giving my kid a ride to school. Why the fuck can't my kid take the bus?) since it was obvious the game was making me keep the car running despite the other choices I made. Two days later I get a call from a collections agency asking for a payment. Fuck that, had I known my car was a single payment from getting repossessed I wouldn't have paid to repair it. I'm generally a soft-hearted liberal type, but that game frankly made me less sympathic to poor people. If the multitude of bullshit choices were presented in the fashion they were because that's how your typical impoverished person thinks then they can wallow in their own self-inflicted misery. I'm all for helping out the less fortunate members of society and am willing to pay higher taxes to help fund social services programs that do so, but on the other end the people that receive such help need to take some measure of personal responsibilty to improve their own situation. That game certainly doesn't impress on that side of the coin at all. Focus: I've been pretty fortunate in my life and have never had shit hit the fan all at once in such a live-impacting way. I make life choices to minimize such things from happening as well, but I can't say I've been particularly unlucky.
