September 24 - Everyone ready for the Friday Highlight? It's ready for you here!

Please re-release this game and its expansion packs as a “The Sims Classic.”

I’ve been playing RollerCoaster Tycoon Classic, which is also produced by Chris Sawyer by the way, and I own this version exclusively on iOS. There is something nice about taking an old game from your youth with you and it’s the actual game too. No mobile 🌺🌺🌺🌺 involved. No micro transactions or pay to win. It’s the full game and expansion packs (cost extra).

It would be amazing to see The Sims Classic come out for Android and iOS as well as another PC re-release. It worked for Age of Empires HD Edition.

It would awesome being able to play a Sims title on the go. I don’t see why the first installment into the franchise would be a difficult task to port over since its aesthetics and mechanics don’t seem to be a big setback.

Please EA, bring this classic game back for mobile platforms. Charge for the expansion packs again, I don’t care, mobile games don’t tend to be that expensive. RCT Classic was around $7.99 if I recall. This would be really amazing.

    I've played games such as Open Transport Tycoon that were desktop games adapted for mobile. Controls were a nightmare. I can see it working for certain games with more basic controls, just not the Sims.

    RCT Classic seems to have it down.

    The Sims is literally a point and click game so it should be fine.

    The FreeSO guy was already in the progress of doing just that before EA silenced him so now the only hope lays with them. Knowing how much they love to milk the cash cow until it’s dry, there’s likely zero chance of this happening now given how there won’t be any actually money in it for them because of no micro transactions. Because companies never released niche products before in their histories (e.g. iPod Touch, RCT Classic, Creatable World).

    After seeing the IOS version, my partner bought me RCT on Steam for my PC. I love it.

    It would need a graphical update, like AoE received. Plus a few pathfinder improvements, but I'd purchase it 👍🏼

    I would LOVE to see Sims 1 Complete Collection return to PC!
    Why do you hide inside these walls?

    I actually have the old Sims 1 complete collection working on my laptop.

    I wouldn't say it's impossible. It's possible to port The Sims 1 to mobile. Whether EA would find it worthwhile to do so and they don't put micro-transactions in or ruin the gameplay is another story.
