I've been around the Sims forum communities and apparently EA has no current plans on releasing The Sims 1 on Origin, because it's "too old". I think that the game should definitely be released on Origin like The Sims 2 Ultimate Collection was. I'd buy it and so would many other die-hard simmers!
Both were published by EA (click the links to the game titles to see screenshot evidence from origin itself), so the excuse of The Sims 1 being "too old" isn't a valid enough, since it was released in 2000.
EA, please consider releasing the first sims on Origin. I will dip into my pockets to purchase purchase it for sure. I own The Sims 2 Ultimate Collection, all of The Sims 3 EPs/SPs (currently working on owning the store and all worlds), and most of The Sims 4 packs (currently working on saving up to buy the missing packs I don't own) on Origin and am intending on purchasing The Sims Complete Collection in the near future. I know I'm probably betting on an impossibility here, but Electronic Arts, I know y'all aren't against making more money and plus, if the game is added on Origin for purchase or even better--an anniversary promotional event like y'all did for TS2--it'll be a convenience for simmers who have bad luck with keeping up with their games or bad luck with horrible computers. There's a huge benefit of having games connected to Origin: if I were to ever lose a pack or two or if my laptop crashed, I could just easily log back into my Origin to re-download my game library.
This is coming from someone who plays The Sims 2, The Sims 3, and The Sims 4 and loves all of them for different reasons, since each is special in their own way. It'd mean so much to many simmers if The Sims 1 was released on Origin. Please consider.
