    I've played the odd sims game except for 2, and they are quite fun at times. It's hard to believe they're 20 years old though but it shows they have some lasting value.

    If only the DLC weren't so expensive and numerous haha.

    Great article Saelanna

    I remember buying the first one at release. At the time it was something new, and being such a fan of Sim City, I was a Maxis fan anyways. Wasn't to happy when EA got involved.

    It is fun to play... I know EA often rehashes them with a new number and spits out the same type of content... but still fun nonetheless. I have all of The Sims 3, I plan to keep playing that until they're done spitting out Sims 4 crap and move to Sims 5, then I'll get all the Sims 4 stuff.. lol.. but I have played all the previous ones including the original 1.0v hahaha... still doesn't get old when the Sim catches fire miraculously from the stove though and doesn't know what the heck to do but wave their arms, huddle and then turn into an 'urn'... then your house is haunted... xD

    That's a whole different story, and one of the favorite games at the time it was launched,

    I hated SimCity 4. Breaking the cities into smaller suburbs was awful.
