If you actively play sims 4, when did you start playing the sims?

    It was somewhere in 2021 last year, when I played The Sims 4

    The Sims era (2000-2004)
    I started playing with the first sims game, and I want to say it was around 2002ish when I was 10 years old. My mom had just bought a brand new computer and the game actually came with the computer if I remember correctly. I was immediately hooked and have played the series ever since. 😁

    The biginning of Sims 4 (2014-2018)
    I actually started playing Sims 3 first (in 2015), but Sims 4 already existed at that point. I played 3 for a couple years before trying 4 (in 2017, I think) and I've pretty much never gone back to 3.

    Still remember getting the Sims (1) for Christmas, a game that changed my life. I prefer the quirkiness of the Sims (1), the lore of the Sims 2, the open world of the Sims 3 and...well the way the Sims 4 is going recently ha.

    I just voted in this poll and didn't realize it was so old. The results seem to indicate that the majority of Sims 4 players (who responded to the poll) did start right at the beginning with Sims 1.

    The Sims Mobile (2018-2020)+ sims 4 free download
    2016-ish I figured the mobile version would be the cheapest way to start out. Like most freemium games, it sucked unless you spent a ton of money.

    In 2018, I purchased TS3 on sale and loved it. Except at the time, the lower-of-mid-end consumer-grade PC I had didn't run it well.

    In late 2019, I finally purchased the base game of TS4 on sale. In early 2020 was when I really began expanding my game, and really getting into it. I still largely played TS3.

    In 2021, I purchased Sims 2 Double Deluxe at a yardsale for $5. I think it's what all the later games need to live up to. Haven't played it in some time, as Windows 10 (and I was stupid enough to upgrade to 11) on modern systems doesn't like disks. The refurbished Dell from 2012 this PC replaced ran TS2 without issue, as did my old laptop from 2011.

    TS4 has come a long way in the 3 years I've been playing it, but there's still a lot of catchup with TS3. TS3 could use some optimizations to run better on modern systems.

    I started playing The Sims with the Sims 1 which I had the most expansion packs for. I did purchase the Sims 2 which I have University, Double Deluxe and Pets. The Sims 3 only the base game. Sims 4 Get together and Werewolves. I enjoyed each one of them.

    The Sims era (2000-2004)
    I've been playing since the Sims 1. By the time I purchased TS1 I think TS2 was already released because I saw promotion for it inside the cover of my TS1 games. But I couldn't afford to get TS2 yet so I just mainly played the original until people were selling second hand copies of TS2.

    Sims 2 and 3 era (2004-2014) + Simsfreeplay
    My first Sims game with Sims 2.
    I got the base game, and pets was my first DLC pack. I ended up buying all of it, except for Ikea and mansion and garden.
    How I got into the Sims was seeing a Youtube video of Sephiroth from Final Fantasy 7 running in a field of flowers. I had to find the game that was used, and then got Sims 2.
    I do have Sims 3, but not all the packs. I don't play it as much, because my computer struggles with it a bit, but I do have Supernatural and quite a bit installed for it.
    I own most of Sims 4 for my PS4, and the base game for my PC.
    I missed out on the Sims, which I am disappointed about, because it would be nice to own the series.
