Love this game, I play it almost daily. It has a great online community that helps with any questions you might have, and where you can find neat things other players have built. In the game, you have many selections of how you what your character to look, and the type of person you want them to be. Not to mention all the different types of houses and decorations for the houses. You can even changes on patterns on the furniture and clothes. It's a great game where you can play many different ways

I don't think my childhood would have been complete without the Sims. I probably put more game play hours into this game than all other games combined. It's completely addicting! Of course you use cheats to get as much money as possible because waiting around while your Sim has a job is so boring! I loved making the houses more than taking care of the actual Sims!

This is the most addicting game I've ever played in my life. I don't even know why it's so fun but it is. It's like having your own little computer family that you can do whatever you want with. The awesome expansion packs they have now make it even better.

When my younger brother and I were kids, we could waste hours playing the Sims or Roller Coaster Tycoon on the computer. For me, I loved building/designing houses, while my brother just liked to watch the Grim Reaper show up! The graphics on the original weren't fantastic, but they worked for us back in the early 2000s! It was a fun way to bond with my brother

The original Sims game got me addicted to Sims gaming. Sometimes I design houses in my sleep! The only bad thing about Sims games, is they are huge and usually my computer can only handle them for a while before the game starts to crash upon startup. I own Sims 1 with all expansions, Sims 2 with many expansions, and Sims 3, and I can't play them because my laptop can't handle them. The game is so much fun though. You get sucked in and don't realize when you've been playing for 4 hours straight!

The Sims are so addicting because you can create a virtual life you want at a rapid speed. You can literally do anything you want, if you want to start a family boom you can if you wanted to be an FBI agent boom you can if you wanted to own a business you can!

We are a gaming household! All of us play video games and we have a LOT of systems: Nintendo 64, Nintendo ds, Leapster, Xbox, Wii, Playstation 2, Xbox 360. My daughter LOVES the Sims games! She is 13 and loves being able to set up a house, "buy" a pet to take care of, etc. I think it makes her feel grown up and like she gets to make decisions on her own ;-)

The sims, a great game where you can live out your dreams before making them happen irl!
Making yourself , friends and family, or even going the complete other way and making random sims and creating a life for them to live! On the plus side there is always great expansion packs for them as well which give more content and more things to use, create or do!

The Sims game is a realistic game that when you start to play the game it almost feels real. I know when I play this game I can play for hours; so I need to set a timer for myself. When the Sims 3 game came out a couple of years ago, I was super excited to play it. The Sims can walk around the city and do multiple tasks or activities unlike previous games.

I have loved the sims since they first came out. I currently have Supernatural Sims on my mac and I LOVE that you can create your own supernatural character (werewolves, fairy, witch, etc) and different goals and aspirations will be able to be achieved. My sister has the Katy Perry Sims version and that one is just as fun! The online store can get you free products, along with giving you access to new and exciting items as they become available. I highly recommend Sims games for all! :)

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