I am NOT part of anything in EA and I'm just a player. I try my best to answer questions in the Sims forums, and showing info about the Sims, even posting answers and thoughts of feedback! I have been playing the Sims 4 for 1 year.

    I'm still in the Toddler stage of my Sims lifespan, phew!

    Just 2 years ago I've played Sims 4! Sims is easily in my Top 3 franchises of all time, not joking at all. Maybe even second.

    Oh my god. That must be a REALLY long time! Congrats to all of you who hit 20 years, and even more then that! I've only been playing the Sims for (1) year, and it's really fun, but I've known every feature, almost every mechanic in the game, not to brag! Just saying!

    It was 1996 and was SimCity 2000 which was the second edition of SimCity. I used to imagine how amazing it would be if I could play with the little sim people in my city. You can imagine how fast I hauled butt to the store when The Sims came out! I couldn't believe it, and I was so freaking excited. It DID NOT disappoint.

    I started with SimCity 2000 using a Walmart display computer. This was '98 or '99. Moved to SimCity 3000 when the "Unlimited" edition came out, saw the Sims 1 trailer.

    I started with Sim Safari, Sim Tower, Sim Town, Sim Park, Sim City... not sure if those count or not? Maxis released those between 1994-1998 for Windows 95. That was when I really started with "simulations" But The Sims title itself, would be from TS1.

    How long have you been playing since you got your VERY FIRST sims game?

    played sims vacation and base game with my sister before since she had them

    but my first sims game was Makin' Magic in 2003 (as in that was the one i actually really wanted to have and i eventually managed to get my mom buy it for me)

    still my favourite pack ever tbh

    I don't really remember how long it was since I started to play first SimCity on my ZX Spectrum clone Didaktik M (probably only Czechs and Slovaks know what that was :D ), but I don't think it was over 30 years yet. It was, however, definitely over 25 years.

    What I do remember, however, was my first family in Sims 1 back in 2000. And man was that a mess. I made 8 Sims family with two adults and six kids and it ended with fire in which both adults died and only the kids left. The game still, somehow, allowed me to play them, but I didn't want to. Still, despite this catastrophe, I was hooked, but started to create smaller families until I got the hang out of it Nowadays, though, I like to play with big families :p

    Hahahaha.. Those were the days! I mean you went in having no idea what a tragedy that would be! I remember quickly becoming afraid to pretty much touch anything new with a sim I cared about. Before you did anything in Sims 1 it was like, hmmm, I think I will just save for the 400th time today..

    30 years till Simcity 1, dude!
    Sim City was my first game in the Sim Universe. Though, I didn't enjoy the genre as much as I'd hoped. I found what I was looking for when The Sims launched. I bought it on the first day and I've been with the franchise, in some form or other, ever since.

    Memory isn't as good as it could be but I do know that I was definitely playing SimCity well before I married. Since my son is almost 22, 25-30 years would be a safe guess :p

    Crashed Dad's work IBM-PC back in high school with MS-DOS SimCity. He really should've bought the Atari when we were kids. Probably would've been more of a console player, than a PC gamer, burning my eyes for hrs on end in the distant lands of RPG, simulation & time mgmt...

    I didn't play it very much, but I did play this on a Commodore 64 as a kid.

    After that I didn't play any other Sim games until 2020.
