I lost count of how many different The Sims games there are, but they're all awesome. Sims is a virtual game where you can customize your own characters, houses, love life, career, and much more. The series of The Sims has been getting better and better over the years so much things to do and have fun. I love to go explore and adventure out through the game, the graphics and realizations of the characters are marvelous! In my opinion, The Sims is for everyone no matter the age and recommend for all to play if haven't.

I will admit that I am OBSESSED with the Sims games. I never played the first Sims but I got addicted to Sims 2 and from that point on I was hooked. The Sims 3 is now the only game I play, I spend hours upon hours playing the game.


The Sims 3 is completely addicting and totally a time killer on Sundays when I do not feel like going out, my computer used to be filled up with memory from all of the furniture and clothes I was downloading but I started to save it to a flash drive in order to same my computer memory!!

I have always been a fan of EA games. I became quite obsessive with the Sims when i started playing them for PC long ago! Now they are everywhere! Its just so much fun to play! Who wouldn't want to buy/build a huge house, have expensive furniture you only dream of and hear the Sims crazy language. LOL! You have a choice to play the good ol' honest way or put in a cheat code or two. Still however you choose to play its still addicting. I know people think why make up lives on a video game, why not just go out and live. Well they haven"t played the Sims! Or maybe they have... it may not be for everyone, but it is sure worth giving it a shot! As for myself! I love it! I would definitely

Who could have know that this game would be the start of something bigger than life. The Sims game has opened up a world of possibilities that people love to see. You can play a Sim totally like you or completely opposite of you. You can be who you want to be and do what you want to do. Jobs are open with challenges, and daily life sometimes gets in the way. If I was going to vote for a game that has totally transformed the gaming industry with a new approach to the gaming world I would say this is the game.

I got the original Sims back in high school. And got every expansion pack for it. Then I got the Sims 2. And almost every expansion pack for that. And then Sims 3. And most of those expansion packs. Grad school destroyed all that free time I used to have, though. And now I work on a computer 9 hours a day - that leads to zero motivation to spend hours on it once I get home. But I will always have fond memories of The Sims, and will never uninstall it on my computer. I keep thinking "Maybe on the long weekend..."

I LOVE The Sims! You can customize every aspect of the game. i.e. your Sim's appearance, your house, your Sim's personality traits, etc. There is something so appealing about being in control of someone else's life...FOR ONCE! ;)
You haven't lived if you haven't played The Sims with cheat codes. I could literally play it all day long. All in all, this game is great!

I gave this to five star more for the memories then for the actual quality of this game. I remember playing this game when I was a little with my brother and we thought it was the most fun thing to do. We loved being able to build a house and tell our characters what to do. This is the original so obviously that's where it all started. I wouldn't recommend buying this one now because they're way better graphic versions of this one. But if you want to go back in time and play an old-school version then go ahead, this is for you.

I have every expansion disc of every Sim game that has been made. It is easy to lose yourself in this game. My sister pretty much only plays the game to build the houses in the different towns and then I will play the people and use what she has built. With the newer versions, it is much easier to get new accessories, objects, etc for the sims and share it with other players. Being able to add friends through your profile on the website also gives the option of being able to send gifts for your added friends.

This game is a money trap! Buyer beware! Haha this game is awesome in the fact you can buy expansion packs and that it constantly has upgrades out. The negative to that is always having to buy if you want it. The great part about this is you can treat it like a hobby, you decide how much you spend on it. It will work with the basics or you can vamp it up with different expansion packs. I've played this as a kid and an adult and love it although some things now may be inappropriate for kids playing it

I'm new to the Sims but I love every minute of playing it. I can totally see how you can waist a lot of time playing it because you get so involved in the game. I'm in the third one and planning to buy the 4th or maybe I'll a get coupon for free Sim's 4 game in a Voxbox wouldn't that be SWEET! @Influenster Let's have a sweet voxbox for us that love the Sims.

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