    I agree with you full-heartedly! There's also nothing wrong with guys who play a game like The Sims! B)

    I remember playing TS1 when I was a teenager. Took a break from it missing TS2 and TS3. But back at it with TS4!

    I got into the Sims when i saw my brother play sims 2 or 3 (i dont remember) and i would always wanna play and create sims but he got annoyed. But in November last year i started watching Sims 4 streams and videos and i decided to buy it^^ I thought more teens played it but I'm happy the community is so diverse <3

    Welcome to the Sims community and the game! I think there’s lots of teens that play it, but they don’t know about the forums or something. I started playing in December 2017 and didn’t know about the forums until a few months later. I finally joined the forums on my birthday.

    Yep, I started playing at 12 and only joined the forums at 20 years of age.

    Been playing sims for years. Out of all the games I play, I can't say this is #1 in my life, but I do go through stages of obsession every now and then where I can't put it down lol Like now, for example

    It's neat seeing a lil clipping of our community here. It's hard to imagine who's behind the screen sometimes, so this is a neat way of seeing just how dynamic simmers are!

    Looking at the results, it's kinda sad how much this game tries to cater to an underaged only audience.

    Perhaps true. But I'm even more saddened by the content of the game.

    To me the results only show that the majority of forum members are in the older age groups and the demographic they market to, 13-19, teenagers, don't spend much time on the official forum.
    Do more of what makes you happy. 🌞

    Yep, I've played The Sims throughout my teenage life and joined the forums at 20. I did occasionally google things like bugs I encountered in TS3 and so on and always found answers on the forums, but I only felt the need to join after I decided to start writing SimLit. Still, there are MANY adults who play, but the problem is that they can't put adult-related things in a game like this, where there are so many underage kids who play. That's what mods are for, lol. I just wish we get more content in general.

    That makes sense to. I hardly touched forums when I was in my teenage years and, heck, I didn't join the sims forums until recently. lol Does make you wonder what the different would be between simmers who use forums and simmers who don't. (Although I'm sure a majority of simmers have at least poked into the forums for help)

    I've been playing video games since "Pong" and "Jet Pack" so that dates me. The Sims and SimCity games got me through illness and I've bought everything since. :)

    Insightful poll.
    I am sure EA is mostly interested in the 13 to 19 range, because they want to them to go on to be 20 to 60+ simmers.
    So if this Site is mostly dominated by older simmers, it's probably not as important as other ways to communicate with younger customers.

    I'm old enough to remember pumping quarters into an Atari Sprint Car video game at the movies. Now I'm old enough to have a Wheel Stand Pro and a Thrustmaster T300RS racing wheel with the upgraded pedals and shifter to play my racing games.

    These types of posts always raise a red flag for me. Questions about age, location or any personal information may seem innocent but are not always appropriate.

    They have to have that data, I think you put your birthday when creating an Origin account, right? What I’m almost sure is that older players purchase more. More money = more sales.

    Believe me, age has nothing to do with playing video games or not - except one slows down a bit so is easily killed off! The Sims games are absolutely just right for older Simmers, except a lot of my contemporaries (including my own brother) are a bit frightened of computers, not being introduced to them at an early age.

    (My own library was one of the first to trial something called "Oracle" in the 70's when it was mooted that it would cost 1 uk penny per web-page. That was before the WW Web). I think it was too expensive!

    I definitely had no bad intentions - in fact, I only wanted people to vote and not specify their exact age. I originally wanted to make this poll an anonymous one and I probably should have.

    On the contrary. It is nice to know that there are many older Simmers. Maybe the lack of those under age contributing is that they are conforming to the rules. :) If they know my age group they can ignore me as an "elder" as they want. No problem.

    This Forum is much safer for young people than Facebook, Twitter et al. as you can see in this thread.

    Definitely - I've never seen anyone here disrespecting anyone else, save maybe a few comments and none of them was age-related. There was one underage child that revealed his/her age here, which is why the poll got moderated, but it wasn't a major deal. I never see anyone posting anything regarding age, which is why I created the poll. As long as you don't reveal things you know you're not supposed to, like your full name or address, you'll be fine.
