Fun Fact (If I am remembering correctly): I believe in Sims 1 you were able to paste a real picture onto your sim's face and actually create yourself or anyone you wanted. I'm pretty sure I remember trying to do that once and thought it was pretty cool that my real face was on my Sim

Maybe not the oldest NJSimmer as one friend of mine that plays this game and is a member of the group of Simmers I hang out with in the Sims 3 CAW forum is over 75.
Also back during late Sims 1 and Sims2 early days one of the Nursing homes I was a Geriatric Dietitian at introduced the Sims 2 to the residents of the nursing home as a REC Room activity study on people with memory diseases and found out the game triggered improved memory functions in the elders including short and long term memory. These often very old elders even well into their 90's surprised the staff by recreating their own selves and families where previously they had no memory of their own spouses or even any idea of their life. But after a relatively short time of a few months playing the game it opened up some of their memories and they were able to recreate it.
After that little private study I understand several other Maine Nursing homes have since added Sims 2 games and computers to their rec rooms. So apparently there are a fair number of elders playing and enjoying the Sims 2 anyway.
Also I saw a while back (about mid way through Sims 3) there was a Simmer in Texas celebrating her 86th birthday and another - also in Texas celebrating her 83rd. So I guess there is a fair number of older Simmers. I do not know though if those two Simmers were just Sims 2 players or if they played Sims 3 as well. I do know my friend Rukaya I mentioned who is in my Sims group does play Sims 3 and has almost all the eps, sps and a good amount of store content. She loves to make families for different Caw world creators to populate their worlds with.

Thanks for watching, @Jarsie9. I just went back and looked at what a mess that post was from the bad grammar to the bad link and I'm glad anyone paid attention at all.

Oh I know the Sims 1 and 2 were - but by Sims 3 I was working here in New Hampshire. Last I knew the Sims 2 was the game of choice and was also being introduced in special needs classes in middle school as well. I do believe it was preferred for the those learning from the game to be able to control all the households via a group of players with each student or patient playing a household. So with sp and open world that woud not have worked for these studies and classes. Besides there was a lot more to the family relationships and prioroties that was pretty much lost in the Sims 3. I have not yet seen that presentation - but will probably in the morning.
Thank you for posting that Green Xen.
