Do you ever go back to an old game?

I had this legacy that I LOVED but for various reasons I stopped playing it in 2015. I just started playing it again, right where I left off, and it's so fun. I'm on Gen 4 now.

Do you ever go back to old saves?

    Yes :smiley: In fact, I'm reinstalling some packs right now so I can get back to my LEPacy challenge save file that's currently sitting on Gen 8. Had to uninstall when I switched around some computer parts and then took a S3 break. Can't wait to get back into the game.

    It can be a little confusing trying to remember where you left off with an old save but at the same time, kind of fun. :p I don't know about you or anyone else but I usually have small stories that go with my sims and goals to achieve. Looking back at my blog/simblr helps.

    I have a few older saves I go back to, depending on what I’m in the mood to play.

    I always go back and forth between my new and old saves. I actually have a problem playing the same family for a long time lol

    I have old saves from as far back as 2009. I reopen and fix them so they are playable again using NRAAS mods. And I add sims from them to new games and even add them to new families. I have developed a Big Game over the years that started out with a sim trying for the badge that requires a sim to have 15 children. She didn't get me the badge but I'm using her and her children as the basis for this Big Game. It is only possible with the mods I have, but I've got over 700 sims in it now and they live in 13 different worlds - and I add new worlds as required. The original family is only on generation 4 at the moment. So far they are all still alive but the oldest are getting very old now.

    Of course, although there is one save/family in special that I go back to more often.

    A few days ago I bought the University Life expansion and, instead of continuing on my generational game, I went back to this old save to try the pack. So I aged up a fairy teenager and her witch sister to take both to the university. I hadn't played that save since January.

    I have a save that I come back to since 2017. I'm basically committed to play it once a year. LOL

    I have several saves backed up, but my oldest was played in 2015. Unfortunately, I lost the others before that.

    I have about 65 saves and I pick who I want to go see, I keep careful notebooks for all my challenges in progress.

    I have 65 games I rotate with on this computer - a lot more on my other computer but it was damaged and I need to work on it then transfer them to this one

    Theses days if i walk away from a save its usually because i have lost interest.

    Although a do have a couple of really old saves i occasionally go back to the only reason i do not play them regularly is because the files are to big/bloated, there all over 2.5GB. They still work fine its just having the time, since they take around an hour to load and can only safely play for 60 to 90 mins before saving and restarting to avoid error 12.

    I always save my favorite households in my library so if I want to replay them, they are always available. And I do replay them.

    I like to go back to them and sometimes change what I'm playing and I'm playing my Evermore Falls legacy challenge which I loaded up earlier.

    I have several families from old stories saved for when I can add all the EP's and store back into a new puter and I hope it will work out that I can play them again.

    Recently, I have. But I don't continue them. By that point, I've long lost interest, so I "recycle" them. Use that save as the setting for another household.

    I don't feel any great attachment to saves but I do to sims. I didn't bother transferring my saves when I left America a few years ago but I did bring my sim files. As long as I have my sim files I am a happy simmer :)
