    I have so many in Sims 4. I guess that's due to the CAS and the ability to make such a variety of sims.

    I suppose my most favorite would be Hannah, the simself of my rl cat. Hannah died shortly before Cats and Dogs came out at the age of 18.

    I was 19 when I first saw the game, in its huge box, at BJ’s. I hadn’t any clue about it and was not aware it had come out, but I do recall seeing, “from the creators of SimCity”. Despite the fact that I was dead broke I grabbed it and boy am I glad. These past 20 years have been an amazing ride. I could not see my life without my beloved Sims. There is no other game I have played this long and that still captivates me!

    Happy 20th to the Sims and may there be many more!! 🎉🎊

    Love the idea @MelissaStarbees!!

    I don't have many pictures from past Sims, but one of my favorites is the Sim I created as my simself when The Sims 4 came out:

    c0a9sd9bsu42.png

    She has lived many different lives the past 5 years, that's what makes her so special!

    From the ones not created by me, Bella Goth is definitely my fav!


    Happy 20th birthday The Sims! :smiley:

    Choosing favourite Sims is always tough for me, but at the same time it is kind of fun. These threads are also really great to see some incredible Sims, so I hope there are many more posts to come!

    These are some of my all-time favourites.

    4lXWDWx.png

    Females: Sky Connors, Blu Baylee, Mallorey West and Kendi Chase.
    Male: Daniel Fisher (the first male Sim I ever created in TS4, only tweaked over the years), Chayton Dakota, Seyithan Avci and Phillip Erwin Kaine.
    Ha! The guys are really bearding it up! :D
    If I just posted an outfit you like, I have good news - there is more where that came from!

    I do happen to have one from the vaults. I tell this story a lot when I remember back when I first started playing. I spent ages building a house, moved my family of 8 in. Forgot to put in a smoke alarm. A couple of minutes later, the house went up in flames, leaving only 2 family members. I went from shock/kind of horrified to laughing in a few seconds. Whenever people ask why some players like disasters in this game, I tell this story. It's because of things like this. It was the way things were and I love it for that.
    It's not a very good screenshot, but I don't have many left as my external drive where everything was stored bit the dust. But I do actually have some of my original .FAM files. I was thinking about installing TS1 on this computer and moved those files over before the external drive died, so I've still got those.
    Hahahaha.jpg



    This is the 4 version of my very first sim, Kitty. She adopted Calli the stray in 1, so here they are together in 4. Kitty lives kind of a colorful life!

    China Pries. ONe of a hundred. She was born in game during my 100 baby challenge, (baby 42 if I remember right? ) She moved to Sulani and is now married to Erwin Pries and they have 3 kids together.

    Connor Quinn, a teen from my original Sims 4 family who I still play daily. She was born in game and like her mother, has a real love of the jungle and archeology. This is her with her mum on a mother daughter jungle trip they took as a bday gift when she first became a teen. She has 5 younger siblings.

    Camille and her step daughter Conventry. This is quite a blended story. Camille is the mother to 6 kids but none biologically. She originally adopted triplets (Corey, Courtney and Caitlin) and was a single parent to them but she's now married and her husband James has 6 kids from a previous marriage. Coventry here is the youngest and she and older twin brothers Kade & Eduardo live with Camille and James and the triplets, but James' other three kids (another set of triplets named Luna, Lloyd & Gwendolyn) live with his ex. They visit on a daily basis though and join the family for all outings. James is secretly hoping to have custody of them one day after the older kids move out.

    I started playing in November 2000 at the age of 5 (this super cool username actually dates from then lol), because my cousin got bored of hers and gave me her copy. I still have that original CD! Anyway, because of that and my short attention span, I've probably had tens of thousands of Sims, and thus don't have a ton of pics for all of them. Many I couldn't even tell you what they looked like or what their names were, but I can remember their stories. Also, unlike a lot of people, I don't really make "stories" in the sense of taking screenshots and writing things down; I just kind of go with the flow and live their lives, but that makes remembering them years later quite hard.
    I especially like playing premades, so lots of these are premade families. (It frustrates me to no end that I always have to make a Sim before playing a game on TS4, when I want to play with premades).

    The first family I ever played was the Goth family. They, especially Mortimer, remain very close to my heart. I think I'm attached to Mortimer mainly because he looked a lot like my dad, just with fancier clothes lol. In any case, I must have played them dozens of times and spent hundreds of hours with them overall. I do remember one occasion where Bella got abducted by aliens and, this being after TS2, I couldn't help but laugh and relate it to her disappearance.

    One of my favorites was a family I had in Makin' Magic, which was the first family I was able to afford to move into the magic realm (or whatever it was called lol). They had a cute little house and gnomes to protect it. I actually remember very little else, just an immense sense of pride that I made it there.

    I also had a save with the Burb family; they ended up having a daughter, so she and Johnny had to bunk in the same room. I remember I, without thinking, had them set off fireworks in that room... the whole room caught fire and it was not pretty. I felt bad for Brad and Tiffany having to live without their kids. But I made it into a story, and they later had another kid, and I like to think they were able to start to heal.

    In TS2, the Broke family has always been a favorite of mine. I always take pride when I can get Dustin to turn his life around, become a straight-A student, help out around the house, and become a really good big brother. Beau is just adorable, and I like to experiment with different paths for his life, and then the baby always amuses me, being Brandi's clone (though sometimes I cheat to re-attach the kid to Skip).

    I also like the Ottomas family, despite them being pretty ugly (thus making them disliked by many, especially given the glitch they originally had). Managing to take care of them all was always a struggle (thank goodness for CC bunk beds, or I wouldn't have been able to fit them all half the time!), but rewarding. I was always so sad when Dora died, and sometimes made her drink so much Elixer of Life that she would end up the same age as her son (because he'd age during that time, unlike her)

    Another favorite of mine was the Striker family from TS3. I had one save that I played them for probably a few weeks, which is exceptionally long for me. They got a butler, had twins, were very successful in their jobs, Sebastian became a child and was thriving... and then I had a glitch where Richie vanished from the game entirely - no cheat or mod or anything could bring him back. And because I had an auto-save mod and hadn't realized he'd vanished (his icon was still there), I'd let the game save after he vanished, so he was lost forever. I think I kept playing and got Stella remarried, but it never felt the same after losing Richie. RIP Richie :lol:

    One of my favorite families I made for TS3 was my 100 baby challenge family. I think I only got to about 20 or so before the house caught fire and like 7 of them died. I think I tried to keep playing after that by going back to a save I'd made a few Sim-days before, but sort of lost interest. It was neat, though, as I'd downloaded some baby daddies, and one was the son of the Grim Reaper so he had that glitchy, pitch-black skin, and she had triplets with him, so there were 3 Grim Reaper grandkids running around lol. I actually do have screenshots from that family, thankfully (and wow, just looking, that was 8 years ago this month!) I even have pics of the fire and its aftermath.

    As for TS4, one of my favorites was my Bob's Burgers family I made after Dine Out came out. They ended up having 6 more kids (I had a mod for quadruplets, quintuplets, and sextuplets at the time and they had sextuplets!), which did not make their lives easier lol. Gene grew up to be a hunk somehow, though, so it was okay :lol: I'm certain I have screenshots of that family somewhere, probably backed up on my external hard drive (I purge my screenshots folder every year or two because it gets so full, and only keep the ones I really like).

    Those are all I can think of off the top of my head, and this is already a really long post (sorry, got nostalgic!) But thanks for the trip down memory lane, and for everyone's posts thus far. They've been really interesting to read!

    Happy 20th Sims! The game has brought me much joy over the years :)
    I only played TS1 briefly and remember finding it difficult to keep my sims happy but I enjoyed it enough to try TS2 which I played until the release of TS3 which I have played ever since. I plan on playing TS3 as long as I can :)

    Although I moved overseas half-way through my TS3 years, I brought all my sim files with me. I have several sims who have been played many times in both The States and Australia :) I won't post pics of all my favourites because that would be overwhelming :D

    I'll start with my simself. Although she rarely plays a major role in my saves, she has acted as nanny in many saves and helped to raise hundreds of sim children. When I recently tried the Daycare Profession for the first time she got the job :D
    48352917946_c7469931d8_o.jpg

    I started making Spike and Angel sims several years ago. I was happy with Spike from the beginning and he has been played many times. I was never happy with how Angel looked until my final round of tweaks last year. I am yet to play him but am looking forward to it :)
    49206014136_122174ac1c_o.jpg

    Paul is another sim who has been played a lot. I remember using him to test University when I first installed it :)
    45594722892_553129f940_o.jpg

    Jason was made in the last couple of years. I wasn't sure if I would play him but decided to turn him into a genie when I first installed Showtime and he was perfect for the part :) In recent times I also played him as a human sim :)

    32119820698_f0b0b5411b_o.jpg

    Jensen and Jared have also been played many times since their creation, in fact I am currently playing them :)
    48934993546_da268819b3_o.jpg

    Ian, another favourite, has undergone a lot of changes over the years and here is a fairly recent version.
    47066127501_e9431202a0_o.jpg

    I made Josh for a Facebook friend a few years back but he is a joy to play so has featured in many of my saves since then :)

    I can’t do it on my phone but when I get onto my computer, I will share a few of my favorite Sims. Some of you already know my Sims but I think it is so fun to look back and reminisce.
