Game won't load after I click play in the launcher

Game won't load after I click play in the launcher

★★★ Newbie

My sims 3 game stopped working. It worked a while ago and recently I tried to play and nothing happened. I clicked play on the launcher and got the loading in backround cursor and then it stopped. I tried starting the game by bypassing the launcher and still nothing. I have uninstalled all of my games and have only re installed the base game and then updated it.
