I'm not sure if The Sims game producers read these forums but I sure hope they do!

EA!! Why not allow us to download the original THE SIMS -- where it all began back in 2000 ???
That game is gold and it's the key point to your legacy!!!

Why not keep the memory alive by keeping the game as a playable game?

I've personally been dedicated to the game since day one in 2000!!!

I've purchased ALL of the content that you guys have put out from The Sims down through to the current The Sims 4 !!
Us day ones would LOVE this and as loyal fans we deserve a way to play!!

I have a pc with CD rom but as most of us, am using windows 10 and the game installs, but it just will not run AT ALL!!

Please help EA !!! Make your loyal fans happy and allow a download for the game with a windows 10 conversion !!

Sincerely yours with love,
A DAY ONE fan !!! <3

    I hope they do especially when switching to EA Desktop. I want them to make Sims 2 playable again too.

    Not gonna happen--video game companies only care about their latest release. Plus it would cost them a small fortune to make that game run on today's pc's, and they would not get a return on their investment

    I would love it, never got a chance to play it, but I’m afraid this pretty much sums it up...

    I want this. Eleventy trillion percent. It’s my favourite game of the entire series!

    Great idea! I wish there was an option to play the sims 2 as well! I started at ts3 but 2 sounds amazing. I contacted support a while back about where I could find it but no such luck! Would be great to be able to play all of them

    They could release it on GOG, GOG provide abilities for custom patches to make it run well on modern machines,

    I bought Fallout 3 on there and it ran on Windows 10 as soon as I install it(because it already has custom patches included)
    When can we get The Sims 3 Remastered Complete Edition 64 Bit?

    The original sims is a bit too outdated for my tastes, the entire box set sits on my desk shelf looking pretty though :)

    I would absolutely love a sims 2 version that can play on Windows 10. I have read about work-arounds for it, but never managed to get it to go properly on my PC since I switched from Windows 7.

    I play Sims 1 on my computer with Windows 10. Although it's a cracked version from an abandonware site. I have all the original disks from TS1, but those wouldn't work for some reason.

    Not entirely true though. There's a lot of original games over at GOG and EA could put TS1 and TS2 over there. I've bought and been able to play all the original Warcrafts and Diablo and those were around the same times as these games. EA just doesn't seem to want too, so while EA might only care about their latest games, there's a lot over at GOG who do care about their originals. ;)

    Indeed, some ambitious folks port old games to newer systems and place them on abandonware sites. Unfortunately it's not legit. The only thing that has been legally re-released so far is TS2 Super Collection for Mac only, which is still missing some DLC.

    They could do it if they wanted to do it. All they have to do is remove the SafeDisc copy protection from the coding which is on the CDs. Replace with Origin DRM. MS updated Windows 7 and built Windows 10 not to allow those type cds to run on any system with the Windows 7 patch and totally omitted the ability in Windows 10. ETA: MS claims the software allows a vunerablity in a system as a security risk. But we know it's because MS wants all software to be apps/DLC to data mine. As DLC that would not be a problem. Origin gives away a lot of old games so they can data mine your personal info shared with third party companies. That's how they make money on free games, so it's just a matter if they want to offer that game for free or not, and if the data mining would pay off.

    This isn't strictly true. Remastering seems quite popular recently. Even EA has had a go 🤔

    I'm on your "side". Remastered TS2 with all Expansions would be it for me 👍🏼
