Which Sims game is the best?

    I own 2-4 and The Sims 3 wins. I still play it every day during this Corona time mess. I love the open world, endless customization options, best expansion packs, HOWEVER, its impossible to play without a nice PC and nraas mods. One must own a nice PC and, at minimum, install the Overwatch mod to clean up the glitches or the game isnt even playable.

    From 2009, if I told you guys the thousands of dollars we have spent to buy computers that can handle this beast...The mods have been a lifesaver or The Sims 3 would be the worst rated as a stand-alone game.

    I think that Sims 3 is the best! That's the one where I really spent my days playing.

    If I vote just on content - Sims 1 had the most, hands down. Sims 2 was the only one so far that actually felt like an upgrade. I have zero opinion on Sims 3, other than gods awful hideous sims. Never played it because of that. Sims 4 is fun, and a favorite of mine - but it definitely feels light compared to the first two editions...especially Sims 1.

    Myself and a few other friends are arguing about which Sims game is the best. We want to settle this argument. Whichever game has the most 'votes' is the game we decide is best. Tell us your favorite Sims game and why it's your favorite (if you want to).
    I can't grammar to save my life. :/

    Then, I will "grammar" for you.

    Well, there was a copy of The Sims expansion pack at my local public library, but I couldn't play that version on my computer at the time because it was just an expansion pack and required the base game. That event occurred during the summer of 2006, between my sophomore and junior years of high school. In late 2006, I did my own research about The Sims and noticed that The Sims 2 was available as well. I read extensively about The Sims 2 on Wikipedia. The Sims 2 had aging, aspirations, wants, fears, life stages, genetics and generational gameplay, and I was sold! I got The Sims 2 for a Christmas present, and was instantly hooked.

    Then, I went out and bought The Sims 3, and I loved the fact that The Sims 3 was like a mini package of The Sims 2 with bits and pieces from various expansion packs. It was a tremendous upgrade to what I had at the time, which was just The Sims 2 and The Sims 2 Best of Business collection pack (Open For Business EP, H&M SP and K&B SP).

    Then, EA released The Sims 2 Ultimate Collection in 2014, and I downloaded that from Origin as soon as possible to upgrade my game to all expansions and stuffs. And just recently, I got that Frances J Worthington III in La Fiesta Tech to get into the Secret Society so I could explore the Secret Society for the very first time. I still have lots more to explore, though, like werewolves and vampires and zombies and the other Secret Societies and the hidden vacation destinations.

    The Sims 3 is endless fun by itself, but I also own The Sims 3 Seasons and Pets expansions, and they really expand the game in so many ways! I'm hoping to buy The Sims 3 Generations pack soon, maybe in the Expansions bundle so I can get the World Adventures pack as well.

    The Sims 4 is okay, but with The Sims 4 Get To Work EP and Seasons EP installed, I get a lot more features.

    It's quite hard for me to pinpoint which The Sims game I like best, because I like them all. EA/Maxis makes the best games ever, IMO. I have played with other simulation games before, like the Tycoon games and Oregon Trail, but the Maxis life simulation games are awesome!

    I'm between Sims 2 and Sims 4, those are my favorites.

    Btw, I've just found Jerry Martin's page which is the composer of the sims and he is sharing his music for FREE!
