    Even though the graphics are not technically as good in a lot of ways, there are so many details and touches that are lacking from 3&4 somehow.

    I remember thinking TS2 graphics were still pretty good. Booted it up after playing a lot of TS3 and found my memory had just tricked me. TS2 was great at the time but I don't think it has aged well - the gameplay is still solid though!

    I like when video games look like video games. The later games I loved for gameplay and content, but none could beat the original for graphics. They were trying too hard to look like us, and not like video game characters.

    The Sims 3 by far looks the best of all the other games mentioned in the poll. I even like its art style a bit better than the Sims 4. I know that some people think that the Sims 3 is ugly, but I definitely don't think so. The Sims 1 by far looks the worst to me, and there are so few create a Sim options in that one that chances are you'll come across a ton of other Sims that look exactly like your sim anyway.

    For the scenery I prefer Sims 3.

    Sims 3 had cool unique worlds that Sims 4 still doesn't have.

    As much as I hated ts3 style, it is still better than the other choices.

    Thanks for everyone's responses so far. It's interesting to read everyone's reasoning and I'm surprised to see that the Sims 3 isn't winning by a landslide (although it is still winning). I personally don't have a preference, which is why I made this poll but I can see a point for all of the games.

    The Sims 1, to me still looks pretty good, isometric games look better to me then early 3d games. Although I definitely think some aspects like the Sims aged worse than in 2 or 3. @XnexusnyxX makes a good point too. When games try to look too realistic it ends up looking worse as it ages and can sometimes look uncanny/creepy later on.

    The Sims 2 also looks great for it's age when I can get it to run correctly with new graphics card. There's a ton of movement and details in the world maps that you don't get in the newer games. I'd argue that that the Sims look the worse in this game, but I never liked the design so it could be a bias.

    The Sims 3 definitely has amazing backgrounds and I think they look amazing still. The Sims are a bit too realistic so they aren't aging as well as if they had been more cartoon like, but they still look decent compared to other games. I think they look better than 2 Sims.

    It will be interesting to see how the Sims 4 ages compared to 5 if they ever make it.

    Sims 2, definitely. I hate the Sims 3 faces, and Sims 4 is just way too cartoony.

    I've always liked the color scheme of the original the most.
    I can't figure out how to put a picture here! Oh well.
