In an attempt to escape the trials and tribulations of daily life, convenience store clerk Aaron Pike booted up his copy of The Sims 3. Unfortunately, as time progressed in the game, it was clear that Aaron was even worse at navigating the digital life of his character than he was at living his own pathetic existence. He held back tears as his character woke up, went to a dead end job, and had trouble making friends and meeting women.
Aaron's character had many aspirations, including becoming a musician and having a family. It was difficult to manage all of that while trying to pay bills on a measly salary. After a few hours, Aaron abruptly closed the game without saving, mumbling about the game being “too real”. He then proceeded to prepare a microwave dinner before sitting down to watch his recorded episode of The Voice.
