I Played The Sims Yesterday

I got my ancient Windows desktop working yesterday, and while I was doing that found my old Sims disc! It was amazing playing that game again after so many years. I had forgotten how many of the Sims 4 features were actually in place in Sims 1. The music really made my heart sing. ❤️
Ooh Be Gah!! Whipna Choba-Dog? Whipna Choba-Dog!! :smiley:

    Yay for you! I missed the Sims so much and my newer computer couldn't run it so my wonderful son bought an old Dell computer with XP on it so I could play it again! (I don't remember it being soooo hard!!) :smiley:
    I agree with you - the music does make a heart sing!! Have fun!!

    I wanted to play TS1 a while back but I couldn't find my Superstar CD's, so I gave up. I love the music in that expansion.

    Hoping I can get my old windows computer to work so I can play :)

    It would be cool if I can play as I miss it so badly.

    I spent more time then I care to admit to get this game to work on my Windows 10 laptop. It really is still a fantastic game ❤

    I miss playing the classic! I regret letting my friend bend the disk awhile back. Otherwise, I'd have owned the whole collection by now.

    Yes, it still has a lot going for it.

    I love the original series! Once I get my (very old) mac mini with me, I hope to be playing it again soon! :smile:

    I've also returned to the sims. Starting with The Sims 1, I will go through all of the series. There are still interactions i've not tried yet.
    It's fun, I'm feeling childhood once again. :smile:

    If you are lucky with your computer it is possible :)

    Yep! And now I’m playing The Sims 2 on my laptop. :)

    I would love to play TS1 and 2 again! So many memories. Wish EA would put them up on origin...I can dream right? lol

    How to make a dream come true:
    Find an old XP machine. They are out there, it just takes time and persistence. I still have mine and it still runs faithfully after 20-odd years.
    Get the disks. Last I knew ebay has oodles of them, along with the books. I consider those paper gems essential.
    Set up, fire up, load up, and you're in Simvana.

    I have tried so hard to get TS1 to work on my PC, and it makes me so sad that I have yet to be successful with it. I really REALLY wish they would make it available for newer PCs, because I want so badly to play it again.
    It's not a party if you don't do something that scares ya.
