Hi, i'm Rosie!

I'm from Manchester, UK, i'm 19 years old and my hobbies include singing, dancing and acting. Also, i like playing with my dog- Bobin and my guinea pigs- Brock and Badger, going to the cinema to see lots of films and reading!

My favorite Origin game and also only origin game i have played is The Sims! I would like to see if there are any other games out there that i may enjoy (recommendations welcome). 

A gaming experience i remember was when i was in year 8 and first started playing Sims and thought i was weird for making all these diverse sims with complicated relationships, whether that was because of affairs in families, same sex relations, making them have lots of babies... i thought i was the only one! Until... me and a friend from school confided in each other and found we both did the same! It makes me laugh to think about that memory as it seems so daft now! i couldn't give a fook! 

I love origin because everything you need is in one place, it is a trustworthy system and is organised well.

A feature i'd like to see- more free stuff and speedier downloads!


I want to make friends through this! Standard smile

Hi Rosie,


Welcome to the Community! It's lovely to have someone here that's into the performing arts. That does make me curious.. since you're into gaming, would you ever consider doing voice acting for a game? Or do you prefer physical acting?


I also love the names of your pets, by the way. Especially BadgerLarge smile


If you're looking for friends, then be sure to also leave a reply in our Origin - Find new friends thread. I know for a fact that there's at least one other Sims player in there! But it would also be a good idea to just join in on some other topics in the General Discussion, as that is the easiest method of getting to know other players.


Like you, the EA office where I'm at is full of Sims lovers! So since you've asked for some other tips on games, I've asked around for you to see what some of their other favorite Origin games are, and the general consensus was on the following games:


What I would personally recommend is to try out a month of Origin Access - it's a membership for £3.99 / month £19.99 year that you can cancel at anytime, where for as long as you are a member, you can play all games in the Vault. Our Vault currently also includes Unravel, Plants vs Zombies, Sims 3, as well as SimCity. So, if you really wanna try out something new, then this is probably the easiest and most cost effective way of doing so - as a bonus, it also happens to give you a 10% discount on other purchases in the Origin Store.


I would say the best thing about Origin Access is that you can try out many of our games for a month, without having to fully commit to them. If you've got any questions about that, let me know!


In the meantime, I hope that you will enjoy the Community forums, and thanks for stopping by!




(forgot to add: @MerrierSimmetry that did a post just above yours, is also a Sims fan! You can tag a user by writing a reply and using the @ immediately followed by the name of that user, as in my example in this sentence - it will let someone know that you've talked about them here on the forum).
