I grew up playing this game, and even now I still play it. I had all the expansions for Sims 2 growing up, but my all-time favorite expansions have to be Seasons and University Life for Sims 3. I loved being able to send my kids off to college or celebrate Christmas with a gift-opening party with my friends. This franchise is one I can play for hours on end, and I honestly love it. I now have moved on to Sims 4, and the only disappointment is how expensive the Stuffs packs are, and how the previously mentioned expansions may not be implemented. Nonetheless, I love the customization aspect of the game, and how you can make it unique every time you start a new family.

I use to love this game back in the day.  I even got my son playing until I would play his toon, get him abducted by aliens, and pregnant.  It's also cool to be able to design the houses and landscaping.  Of course there is a code to give you unlimited cash so you could afford everything.  It's also really cool that you could upload clothes and other items designed by you or other players to use in your game play.

The original Sims collection is SO GOOD. Vacation and Pets are my favorite expansions, by far, but even without the expansions, this game is golden. Not to mention how great the soundtrack is. Everything about this game series takes me away to my happy place. I highly recommend.

I've never been a big gamer, but this game is one I could play for hours and hours (or even days and days). I love all the options and how much you can customize. I love the challenges and how many different personalities and outcomes are possible. I have been playing the sims since the very first one came out when I was a child, and will continue to play for years to come.

Oh lord where do I even begin with this infamous game!?? I remember when I first got the sims, i would play for what seemed like days at a time! It is such an addicting game and even sitting here writing this review, it is seriously making me want to whip out my games and re-download them ALL! The original sims was so cool! I LOVED The Makin' Magic expansion the most though! The original series had SO MANY different expansions that everyone could love and find an interest in!

I had this game as a kids. It is so addicting. I played it everyday, and even had almost all of the expansion packs. for some reason I would always lose the main game so I would have to buy a new one. I still play the newer version today. Just wished it was a little cheaper since it not the newest version out. Electronic Arts The Sims (PlayStation 2)

okay, can I just start by saying I've wasted so many hours just creating the perfect sim, and the perfect household. This game is not only fun, it's extremely ( and I emphasize extremely) addicting. The possibilities are endless, I would definitely recommend this game to anyone that wants to ruin there life.

Aww . This takes me back and warms my heart. The sims two ( that is a different story altogether) is my favorite but this is the one that started it all. I was getting out of my doll phase and found this . Kinda helped me transition into a teenager. Special special place in my heart

Is there anything better than Sims? Is there? It's such an addicting game. I love how they've updated it over the years, made it better, and continued to give people what they want. I can't wait for the Sims 4 Pets expansion pack. I love it! Would definitely recommend.

Do you base your Sims off existing characters or people or do you create original ones?
