Maxis performed an exorcism on The Sims 4’s damn main menu

Among the many unearned stereotypes about millennials, the unanimous truth is that we are appalled by unexpected phone calls. And do you get repeated unexpected calls? Well, I can just choose to throw my phone out of a window. Maxis has taken advantage of the original fear and brought it to life in the form of The Sims 4’s infamous “Ring Ring Girl”, which is now an official sim that you can download from the gallery and which announces a game update to the main menu.

That very reviled Ring Ring Girl has been on The Sims 4’s start menu for a while and has tortured players with her adoring look every time they start up. She may seem overbearing, even obsessed, but she honestly gave real advice that you can check your Sim’s phone to get them a job or call their friends.

Maxis rolled out a small game update yesterday to revise the game’s start menu and with the triggered Ring Ring Girl.

She’s everywhere. She’s calling you. Why do not you answer? Do not want to just look at your Sim’s phone?
