Then it throws random costly medical bills at you, accidents, HUGE bills, etc... the guy who made that game didn't want you to Win.. is the point.
Don't hurt yourself now.
The game is RIGGED.
The rent in the game is $700-$800 dollars, something that you would see in a larger city... or for a Really large apartment in a smaller town....

The game we ALL are playing in is rigged, and we can't win unless we join the inhumane society.
So where/ how do I sign up for that society?
Not kidding I am ready to trounce anybody who stands in my way. Do I qualify?

Granted I didn't have kids or anything...anywhoo,long story short,I don't feel bad for the poor.Life is what you make it,there's always options out there.It's up to you whether or not you choose to take them and have a better life.
Ps... being poor isn't like it is in a video game.
ETA : Played the game. It's so unrealistic it's not even funnyedit on 26-9-2011 by nightstalker78 because: (no reason given)
I work retail, and am paid roughly $2 above minimum wage and I don't make $1200 a month, personally, as a part-time manager. I generally make 400-700 a month (with two pay periods), and when I'm lucky, I have a 600-1000 month (3 pay periods). We couldn't make it depending on my income.

You don't have a degree. You're not qualified to make "diagnoses".
So, please knock it off, m'kay?
