I remember all of the time I spent on this game when I first discovered it - it truly is unlike any other for its time. There are so many options and customizations you can make and you easily can lose track of time while playing this game. Although I do enjoy the Sims 3 the most so far out of the series - any Sims game in my opinion is worth spending the time and money on.

Sims is the greatest game ever invented. I swear I can never get tired of playing sims even with all the add ons and new games it just keeps improving. Even the characters and the whole game just keeps getting more realistic and I can wait until I play the new one.

This is my all time favorite game. I've played others genres but I always come back to The Sims series. I think one of my favorite things about the games is that it's a highly advanced, adult version of a dollhouse. There are endless possibilities in the games and I love to try as many as possible. When I play this game, time FLIES by. What feels like an hour can actually be 6.

When the Sims first came out I had to have it. I was probably seven, and it was so much fun. From creating the characters, to getting the newest expansion, to building your dream house, there was always something fun to do in this game, and I played it for hours on end. I am still playing the Sims series for hours on end, and cannot wait for the Sims 4 to come out in 2014!

I have played many different Sims on the PC and two for PlayStation2. The PC games get an A from me, the ones for PlayStation get a C because they had a building limit unlike the PC Sims. These games are seriously addicting and I love that when playing on a PC you can download user created skins/clothing/hair. I would like to see online play integrated in the future.

Ever wanted your own perfect dream house? With the Sims you can build it. They have so many expansions there is something for everyone. Pets, vampires, business, vacations. EverythingHaving owned every Sims game since the first one, I can wholeheartedly recommend these games. They are amazing. With so many options for what your Sims look like, what house they live in

This game is excellent. i recommend not buying the expansion packs at a store where you buy the original one because it could be very expensive my recommend place is to get the used ones or at garage sells online and other cheap places like that because you are not going to need it that long so its pointless to get a brand new one! save up that money of more games! haha

I have been an addict of this game since day 1! I don't know what it is about this game that makes it so addictive? It's just fun. I recommend playing this game if you HAVE free time. Don't sit down and think "oh, just a few minutes", this game does not work that way. Minutes turn to days, days turn to months, etc.

P.S. I think the best platform for this game is PC.

The original that started it all. I'm not sure how enjoyable the game would be now if you didn't have the nostalgia factor, especially if you're used to a newer version, but it's hilarious in its simplicity. Build things, play God over some fairly unintelligent people that you created, and 4 hours later you might find that you've stayed up way later than you intended.

I love the Sims. I used to play this for HOURS when I was younger, and I still do to tell you the truth! This game is super addicting and I would recommend it to anybody! The only reason I gave it a B though is my game always seems to crash whenever I play, and nothing I do is resolving the problem. Other than this issue, I love the game and it's great for a rainy day!

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