If only Brian knew how much time he'd be spending in his apartment in 2020.

The Sims is a horror game Also Brian you've pretty perfectly encapsulated the feelings of alienation under capitalism that's killing us all so that's... depressing but pretty cool

I love this video because it explains through satire why I absolutely hated the Sims when I played it and why I have never touched another version of the game since; when creating yourself to the best of your ability leads to watch a depressed person killing themsleves, the flaw is apparent. And whether the flaw is with you or the game, the game brings no joy.

We now know why his sims personality traight was books... it makes so much sense he was hiding it and didn’t want to spoil the video, but sims him knew. Because sims him was him, so of course he would read, he only read one book series.

Just as another commenter earlier said... this video really struck a chord with me too. I’m not a danger to myself or anything. But the despair of loneliness is real. Especially in the digital age where we are fooled into believing we are being social by using text messages. Anyhow, this video got me. Side note, whoever writes your scripts is funny AF! Love it!

Abram Francis Black
Preferring browsing the internet outside to being miserable in my living space is surreally relatable. My circumstances are completely different to yours, but I know exactly what you mean. And I love how you tie it together with a bow of people who care about you. That's probably the element that I'm for some reason ignoring. You're a beautiful person, Brian.

I practically ended every relationship I had until I could manage my BPD. Some offer to help but I was too ashamed to let them. I came here to distract myself from the pain and I tell you, I didn't expect to be called out.

I started this video thinking I’d be in for a good time but then 6:12 “even death has forgotten me”. I finished it and now I’m emotional for a different reason.
