- I've made 94 movies, but only three have gotten a 3 star rating. (BTW, it's out of five.) My movies consistently open somewhere in top 20, but have no staying power and quickly fall in the rankings. No blockbusters to speak of.
- I've only gotten a handful of awards, and they've all gone to "best newcomer." I think that's mostly a result of me putting janitors into a starring roles!
- Out of 46 actors/directors in all of the studios and 10 in mine, my highest ranked one is a director at 16. Ouch. No people magazine covers to speak of.
- Well a huge quantity of bad movies does pay off. I've got $7.2 million, but there's not much I can really spend it on. I guess I could just build entirely new buildings to replace the aging ones that need repair, but who would take care of them? I guess I could pay my talent more and maybe they'd be happier, but they still aren't making good movies. But really, $7.2 million is a lot of dough... what good is all of this money if it can't really solve all my woes?
Sadly, I think I'm close to done with my current game... I think I'll play it until I can figure out what happens when I get to a little past the current time. (Are there features in the game that foreshadow the the future with things that haven't been invented in real life yet?) I'm not sure there's really an ending point, a point where I've "beat" the game, so I may just teeter out of this one... but I don't think I'm ready to quit playing The Movies. I think I'm actually nearing the point of starting anew with all the skills and knowledge I've collected. But I do like the game and it's pretty engrossing so I think I'll continue to play it... perhaps while basking in the glow of unemployment come June! Will listing "videogame blogger" on my resume get me a job anywhere?
