Hey howdy hi fellow Simmers!
My name's Kendra, but of course, that name was taken, so I replaced one letter with another. I've been playing The Sims since... gosh, whenever the first one came out. (2000, seriously?? Wow.) Suffice to say, I've been around for a hot minute, and despite owning The Sims 4 since it was released as well, I've waited a long time to join the forums.
Most of the time when I was younger, it was playing The Sims for a few days and then forgetting it exists for six months, but now I've been playing a handful of families on rotation for well over a month, I think. I started many legacies. (Did you know The Sims 4 hates anyone that makes a Legacy, gosh, I've never had a game straight-up rebel against my plans as hard as TS4 does sometimes. One of my founders laughed in my face and turned out lesbian. xD Still love her tho.) I read the forums here a lot to find help and because there are interesting discussions, so I thought I might contribute sometimes.

Hi everyone! I've been simming since my older sister introduced me to the original Sims in 2002. I can seriously remember the awe when I saw the trailer for The Sims 2 when it was first announced. That's when I was really hooked!
I really loved TS2, and TS3 when it came out, but I didn't immediately grab TS4 when it was released. It wasn't until toddlers were added in a patch that I finally bought and downloaded the game (I am a very family/legacy oriented player).
I've been touch and go with the game since, playing every day for a few weeks and then leaving it for a few months, and then repeating the cycle. I really love telling stories with my sims, so I've decided to get back into play and start sharing on the forums!
Fun-fact: Even though I love playing legacies, I've never made it past generation six!

So hi. Giving this introduction thing a go. Hmm, what to say? Well, I've been playing the series since the very first one, loved Making Magic. That expansion turned a fun little simulation game into well... imo that was what caused the game to spawn into a franchise
I've played every iteration of The Sims except for the second installment, good old military service was keeping me far too busy for that at the time sadly (got straight into The Sims 3 when I left though). I've seen a lot of footage from it and read so many nostalgic posts from players, that I really feel like I missed out on what was probably the best all-round The Sims game thus far. Those sweet, sweet animations for just about everything, we still don't have some of that now
Anyhow, I digress, I've loved The Sims from the start and even though I sometimes get a little bored of actually playing it, causing me to restart over and over, I never get bored of creating. Whether it's lots or virtual people, I'm addicted to the creativity this game offers. Put a whole host of amazingly talented modders on top of what the game itself comes with and BAM, here I am, on the wrong side of forty, spending far too much time in a virtual world, creating silly things that very few outside of this community would understand or relate to. Gotta love The Sims

I'm fairly new to The Sims. I have always wanted to play it after seeing my friend play it, however, my parents didn't really understand the point of playing a simulation game where you watch sims do the exact things you do in real life. So when EA had that base game giveaway in May, I immediately installed Origin and downloaded The Sims 4. It's really fun to play God with your sims, and I am still amazed sometimes by the game. Let's not talk about the "Wohoo" option. Why is it called Wohoo anyway?? Since I don't have any packs yet, I am exploring mods and CC, and I never get bored.

I played sim city back in the day as a kid and slowly moved around to Theme Park and the others. Was obsessed. Now I am all grown up and have recent (in the last couple of months) found myself playing again. Still have not settled on a type of game play etc. Just trying out some of the extensions and packs. Look forward to meeting you all

Hello simmers! I'm new here but I've been a Sims fan for some time. I used to play The Sims 2 a lot back when it was new, but then I kind of lost interest with Sims 3. I've been playing again ever since the start of the year.
I think Sims 4 is definitely my favorite game in the series, although it certainly has its flaws, but I'm optimistic the game will only get even better with time.

> Hello @ElDimentio It is nice to meet you. Welcome to the forums!
> It is nice that you have been simming for quite a while and first started simming by enjoying playing Sims 2. It is great that after a break you are now back simming again this year and are playing Sims 4. Simming is fun!
> I hope that you will enjoy reading the forum threads and posting on the threads about what is happening in your game.
> Happy simming!
Thanks for the welcome! There's definitely some interesting stuff that happens in my games lol I am also hoping to get new gameplay ideas from other people here. I haven't been active on a forum in ages; to be honest, I kinda missed forum communities. There doesn't seem to be that many nowadays.
