I'm also wondering.. if you had to choose, from all Sims that you've played, what would be your favorite Sims moment ever?
Hard to choose, but I remember a great moment from The Sims 1. I was playing my very first Sim, who I put in a house that took up most of his starting money, and didn't know that the plants surrounding it needed to be watered daily. So they kept dying, which put the Environment score (which was a separate status bar then) in the red, which put him in such a bad mood when he left for work each day that he never get promoted.
So when I finally figured out what was happening I hired a gardener, who replanted all of his dead plants while he was at work. But this cost more money than he had, so she got really angry and announced that she was going to take something of his to make up the difference. She marched into his kitchen, picked up one of his two dining chairs and walked off the lot with it. Hilarious.
(Note that this same Sim had previously died on Day 1 trying to cook with 0 skill, and setting himself on fire. I chose to revive him by not saving. )
What brought you into the Sims series?
What is your all-time favorite Sims game, and why?
What do you think of the most recent game, Sims 4?
If there's anything that you can change about the Sims, what would it be?
Is there anything from past Sims games that you would like to see make a comeback?
Thanks this was great!
Well when we got Sims 2 and all the life stages were in the game, and sims were much more like us than they had been in Sims 1. I was so amazed by that I cried.
Then again when Sims 4 finally gave us the toddler life stage - I cried.
Funny thing is I am not a weepy type of person - but the joy was so great it was all I could do. I do love the Sims pc games.
I want to thank everyone that posted here for sharing their Sims experience, to @EA_Tom for creating this thread, to all those people that created and developed the series and to the modding communities that kept alive the older entries in the series.
So...Thank you, everyone!
I do not work for EA and i am not associated with the company in any way. I am a player just like you, trying to help wherever i can.I will not answer to any unsolicited PM.
@ivrognard, couldn't have said it better! What an awesome thread full of great stories, thoughts and memories!
Oh wow! What a story..
I'm quite new to the Sims (I knew the series long before, but didn't start really checking it out until Sims 4), so like you mentioned, I'm still learning new tips & tricks every day.
Don't worry about the long text, it was definitely word the read. Thanks so much for taking the time to share your thoughts and memories! It's clear that you care a lot about the Sims, which means that you're able to provide a good insight into the games, coupled with good constructive criticism.
I guess your story is another example of why the game is so awesome. You can have all kinds of unexpected funny or quirky things happening at any time..
I'm glad that you were able to bond with your siblings over the Sims. Thinking back, some of the best memories with my brother are when we were playing games together.. :-)
My parents didn't play videogames, but I can imagine that i'ts something wonderful to bond over with your children.. :-)
I chuckled at the reflection of happiness in your post. It's quite something special if a game can make you cry out in joy!

@EA_Tom good news! it's a pity that so far the game is available in Brazil. Wait... =)

Если вы оплатили покупку, но игра не появилась на аккаунте, пожалуйста, ознакомьтесь с темой. Там вы найдете нужную информацию.
It's just a soft launch for now, so the game will be available in other regions as well soon..
If you're really interested then I would recommend to subscribe via the website linked in my previous post. But I will also be sure to post updates in here whenever I've got something new.
