Which Sims expansion was your favourite?

Out of all the expansions for ALL of the Sims games which was your favourite?

(bearing in mind I was 11/12 when I got this one) I loved The Sims 2 Nightlife just because of the amount of stuff that one added. Me and my school friend both had it and we would often go round to each others houses just to play Sims. We used to love playing as a vampire and would always try and find one to bite our sims. Cars were also introduced and I loved the dance tiles and sphere thing that would spin when your sim was inside? Ah it was so good.

I also loved The Sims 3 Island Paradise because it was so different and the world was beautiful. I'm also a huge fan of snorkelling in real life and so I thought it was amazing when this was added to the game.

    TS3 Supernatural is my dream pack in all eternity. I never get enough of this.

    In the past it was always Pets and Seasons because my sim self family could do the things my actual family did. My daughter could make the snowmen she would make each year. Pets so I could add the pets that we used to have. If we ever do get pets, I hope we could have all the right traits to make my cat Trouble. Man he was a picky little thing and real handful, but man do I miss that cat!!!

    Ts1: hot date
    Ts2: bon voyage or pets
    Ts3: university or showtime
    Ts4: get to far?
    All time fave is probably any university or any EP that they travel as they always are nice short breaks from the rest of the game.

    Sims 3 University was my absolute favourite and I also loved pets, seasons and island paradise. My favourite Sims 4 at the moment is city living

    The Sims 1, Making Magic. That EP truly was...well, magical. The magic system they threw together im Sims 2 didn't even come close to the sheer variety, complexity, or whimsy of that EP. Adults and kids had separate spellbooks with different spells. You got I'm trouble for casting your spells in front of non-Magical Sims. Some of the ingredients for spells were really hard to obtain, and you had to either trade for them or do quests. And there was a while second money system. Some ingredients could only be bought with special magic coins, not simoleans.

    And then there was the amusement park theme, with some items having more of a circus feel and others having a horror house feel. And there were roller coaster rides you could send your Sims on!

    You also got a new baking ability in this EP, where there hadn't been one previously. There was a special recipe book for baked goods and nectars. And new objects to make some of the necessary ingredients, like churn butter or or press nectar. I think there was even a way to get or make your own honey...

    *sigh* The nostalgia is real. It's been my favorite expansion ever since it came out, and as excites as I was for things like seasons in Sims 2, nothing has ever yet managed to top the sheer wonder ans hours upon hours of fun I had with Makin' Magic.

    For TS1 it was Vacations, the closest thing to Seasons. I still love that you could stay on Vacation Island perpetually forever... as long as you could afford it of course. I just loaded the game today on Windows 10 and rediscovered all the Xmas items I downloaded, stuff like animated twinkling lights and an interactable Santa Claus.

    As an aside, speaking to the series as a whole, I love that all the community lots were always populated with lots of Sims.

    For me, The Sims 2: FreeTime was my favourite expansion pack from the entire series. I loved that my Sims had something to do in their spare time that meant something rather than just filling needs and possibly levelling up skills.
    Other EPs that I liked were University, Seasons, Bon Voyage, Apartment Life (Sims 2), Generations, Supernatural, Seasons, Island Paradise, Into the Future (Sims 3), and for The Sims 4, they're all good so far.

    Hard choice, but as much as I loved Open for Business of all the packs in any series, I will have to say Makin' Magic. I loved the music, the Magic Town, the graphics, the aura, the duels, the magic tricks, the crazy characters, the ambience, the objects you can use at home, like butter churn to make butter to trade for golden thread, lol, and everything that came in that pack. My grandmother had a lot of those things in that pack so it was a lot of fun to use those objects and then trade those things with the vampire or others in Magic Town to get the ingredients I needed for other things. It has to be one of of the best packs ever. Who doesn't want to turn their enemy into a frog. :p

    And the rides were hilarious.

    TS1: Superstar, I think. All I can remember from that time is constantly striving to be a star. lol I never did make it. I think Makin' Magic was fun due to all the items added in-game.

    TS2: Of all the EP's, I'd say Bon Voyage. In almost every game I played, I consistently tried to get as many of the vacation memento badge thingies for each sim as I could. I can't tell you the hours I spent waiting for that stupid ninja to collect the "travel like a ninja" badge. :D And meeting a furry friend (Big Foot), singing with the ghost pirate, etc. So. Much. Fun!

    TS3: Probably World Adventures, but I also loved Island Paradiso, too. Houseboats <3

    TS4: So far, I'd say Get to Work, but a close second would be Cats & Dogs. Brindleton Bay <3
