    The Sims Stories (Life Stories, Pet Stories, Castaway Stories)
    Castaway Stories is my favorite game because the sims can discover new life away from modern society.
    It's a very different experience from the usual urban life in The Sims.

    Castaway for the Playstation. It is different from Castway stories in that you do not have to follow a storyline, but instead get a list of objectives that unlock more objects and places. They also have to build (and later on repair) the walls, roofs and windows of their huts themselves (I don't remember if that was a feature in Castaway stories, too).
    my sims blog alternates between gameplay with the Villareal and picture stories with my Detroit (android) sims

    The Sims Stories (Life Stories, Pet Stories, Castaway Stories)
    I loved Castaway Stories. Played it on PC and DS. I was always curious about the Urbz.

    Less stories, more Castaway. Basically the era of Sims 2 spin offs. Love the Urbz and Medieval, too. Wish they would come back.

    The Urbz: Sims in the City
    I actually had a hard time picking between Bustin' Out and Urbz. I loved them both and if they were to port them over to PC I'd be in heaven.

    I haven’t played with any of the ones mentioned - bar Medieval, which I enjoyed well enough, both on pc and mobile.
    Aren’t the other mobile games spin offs as well? Free Play, The Sims Mobile? I did explore both but I’m not really into mobile time management/ quest games on small-ish screens (or in general).

    I never owned console (except Atari/ Sega) although I would love to check out Urbz and Castaways at some point. They seem to be popular classics.

    The Urbz: Sims in the City
    The Urbz. It's too bad that EA and Maxis had apparently forgotten about it to the point where there's nary a reference or Easter egg of it in either TS3 or TS4.

    The Sims Medieval
    Medieval. I didn't discover it until I was looking for a new time-killer during the spring of 2020...and ended up putting 400 hours into it before I felt like I'd played it to death.
    And remember this above all. Our Roman gods are watching. Make sure they are not ashamed!

    Castaway on PlayStation.

    You had to craft your clothes, your hut and gather your own meals. As you explored your clothes got torn and you would need to craft new ones. It was a fun survival game. It would be great if they remaster Castaway for the newer consoles.

    The Urbz: Sims in the City
    Couldn’t decide between Urbz and Castaway. I loved the city vibes of Urbz and Castaway had an interesting premise and some survival gameplay.

    The Urbz: Sims in the City
    The Urbz was my favourite Sims game growing up, wish they would remaster it or even just adapt it for the new gen consoles or PC, it's so hard to find these days 😭

    The Urbz: Sims in the City
    there is few not on the poll too
    like ts1/2 for ps2 are different to pc version
    or that cool strangetown psp thing+others that i never got to play

    but medieval and urbz (ps2)
    are 2 big vibes for me

    urbz won this round though because as much as i like medieval i do still feel slightly sad it was made in ts3 style instead of ts2/ts4 style

    and theres always the slight feeling of " but it could be better"

    where with urbz its like " well dang they surely don't make em games like this anymore even if they tried the vibes would simply not be the same" :sweat_smile:

    The Urbz: Sims in the City
    This was a difficult decision between The Urbz for Nintendo GameBoy Advance, DS and GameCube; and The Sims Bustin Out for GBA/GameCube, but I chose The Urbz because I am still able to play this game on my 3 different DS systems. I no longer have a GBA to play Bustin Out or the Urbz for GBA. I enjoyed all 4 games though. I also briefly played The Urbz on my GameCube but didn't enjoy it as much as the handheld versions.

    The Sims Medieval
    Sims Medieval. I would love a remake!

    The Sims Stories (Life Stories, Pet Stories, Castaway Stories)
    I still have my original Xbox so could play The Urbz and the other early games if my TV still had the proper connections but really enjoyed Castaway on PC better which was probably more suitable for my intelligence level! See something, pick it up, use it!

    I would have loved Sims Medieval to be like the Sims iterations. We could then have gone through the centuries with expansions, one by one, bringing us eventually to the 21st century and then beyond. Plenty of Expansions there for EA before giving up! Something we in the UK are used to as we have buildings from all those centuries still being lived in, conserved on the outside but brought into the modern age inside.

    The Sims Medieval
    Sim Medieval was so fun. I'm still hoping they have some kind of medieval pack for Sims 4 inspired from this. I also really liked Castaway.
