I was just thinking about when I first started playing The Sims. I was quite young, maybe 6 or 7. I remember making myself in CAS (or choosing a blonde head, lol) and cheating for money to get a nice pretty big house. I remember I kept trying to walk the superstar runway, wondering why I kept getting yelled at, not knowing I had to have star points. I took her out for mud baths, fancy dinners, winter wonderland vacations, I even got her a pet!
And then I decided to switch houses and throw a party. Baaaad idea. I got them a pool for the special occasion. Everything was going really well, until my sim showed up and decided to go for a dip in the pool. Needless to say she drowned and I actually cried. I had no other choice but to save the game because I had gotten so far with the other family... And that was the end of my very first sim. I never dared to make my simself again in fear that I would die tragically once again.
Feel free to share your first Sims 1 family stories here! Hopefully they aren't as tragic as mine.
