Kim Kardashian: Hollywood. I honestly regretted picking this game for this paper. The game has the most basic features of any game I have ever played. It gave me the feeling that I was playing the Sims on my iPod six years ago.
The game was made for one reason to make money. The whole game is about Kim Kardashian shopping around buying things, since she is super famous it works out perfectly for her since a lot of people would want to download the game and spend money in the app to play more. You start off with a lot of currency but as the game progresses, it starts to feel like you have to pay for the game just to pay it. That feeling is not very enjoyable because it feels like I cannot play the game comfortably. The visuals/graphics of the game are also fairly simple nothing about the game is too special, the challenge of the game is not that hard to capture either. The game just revolves around money even the storyline is pretty basic, I had to skip through it because I was so bored listening to the same story again. The game is definitely missing a lot to it and could be made a lot better if even I was to consider it art. The game in general could be considered a game because it just a time-waster in my opinion but at the end of the day it is in the app store and people pay for this app. The main factor that did not please me was the story. It was so plain and boring but it emulates what it feels like to be Kim Kardashian and her life in Hollywood which might be pretty cool to somebody but for me it is not that interesting. The game is an emulation of the life Kim Kardashian is living and her character is the main character and the main objective is to go around shopping around and doing things across Hollywood. It is a great game for anyone who wants to know how it feels to shop around and buy things in Hollywood, but it really is a big effect on the game is that you are really paying for Kim Kardashian to do that in real life.
Quite ironic huh? Anyways, at the end of the day it is a game and we can make whatever comments we want but Kim Kardashian just keeps getting richer. The way that gameplay works is very basic and could be a lot better, including maybe adding more factors to the game because it gets quite boring walking around with no money to play without paying over your weekly allowances to be ab le to fake buy things in Hollywood. Because we all know that none of us can afford to buy out anything in Hollywood yet. But I hope they really revise those settings in the game later on because it would make the game a heck of a lot more interesting.
