Excerpt: I've always been one for video games. I had a Megadrive when I was pretty young, followed by a few other Nintendo consoles, but I've also been quite a fan of games for the computer as well. I particularly enjoy simulation and strategy games, and so The Sims was something I was desperate to get when it first came out when I was about ten. Unfortunately, our computer wasn't advanced enough to play it and it couldn't be installed when my parents kindly bought it for me.
A brilliant old game.. must have for fans of Simulation and Strategy type games

Excerpt: I was first introduced to the Sims whilst visiting my friend Chloe. Her brother was sat at the PC busily creating what looked like a virtual garden. As he placed the last piece of path and hit the play button little people sprang to life and came to inspect his work, nodding in approval and babbling away in some unrecognizable language, intrigued I sat down next to him to watch more closely.
Excerpt: This has got to be my favourite ever computer game and probably the one I've lost the most time playing. The Sims came out back in 2000 and was a huge hit with all ages. One of the first games of it's type, the Sims allowed you to create a character and live out their life. A simple sounding concept but one that has been really successful. I think the main reason the Sims has done so well is because of the escapism it provides.
Excerpt: The Sims PC I used to love playing The Sims on the PC in the evenings. After the kids had gone to bed and I had finished my tidying I'd switch on the PC and insert the disc. It's like having a little virtual life and you can create your own character. Male or female, choose the age, hair style, clothes, make up, star signs etc..
Think everyone should atleat try this game and run their own world!!

Excerpt: I first discovered 'the sims' 10 years ago when at just 16 and out of school i had a hell of a lot of time on my hands! Thank god really as had i have been working i would have found my self fired for taking a sick day to complete my sim lot! The sims is basically your world! You have a neighbour hood of houses in a town (the name of which you choose) and not only do you create the familys to live in the 'hood' but you get to create the houses from scratch.
Excerpt: I first discovered the sims about 5 years ago. I had always been a big fan of sim city. I had always thought it would be cool to control the people that live in the city you built. The happiest day was when The Sims was released. I went out and bought the game as I had waited for what seemed like years for this game to come out. I ran right home and installed it on my computer. I could not wait to see what kind of trouble I could get my sims into.
Excerpt: The original Sims PC game to me really is in essence one of the best PC games of all time. It was originally developed by Electronic Arts as apposed to EA like now. For its time the game had a totally original and almost inspiration concept of being able to run the lives of people, or as there called in the game (Sims). As I'm sure you know already, it is this concept that has captured the world in force to bring out a totally new experience for gaming on the PC.
An absolute classic, if you own a pc you must own this game!

Excerpt: The Sims is probably one of the most famous games ever. Two sequels have been released never mind countless expansion packs for each one. Basically in this game you are God, you create a family, choose or create a house and tell them what to do. You can help them become successful or you can make them set themselves on fire, it's completely up to you, there is no goal in this game. The graphics in this game are starting to look very dated but it is an old game.
