    This ones been my favorite since shortly after it's release. I loved the first Sims game when it was out and Sims 2 also. I do feel like I'll be playing this one a lot longer than the first two games after it's wrapped up production though.

    I have loved them all, but Sims 2 was my first and is still my favorite.

    I will decide soon. I just started playing the Sims 2 again. I haven't played it in around eleven years so barely remember it. I will vote once my memory is refreshed. I loved it so much back in the day.

    For overall gameplay, 3, then 2. The quirkiness and attention to detail seem to fade a little with every version of the game, which is sad. That said, there was a lot of game in Sims 3. Color Wheel, oh color wheel, I shall never forget you...

    As a builder, 4, then 3. As much as I adore that color wheel, I adore resizing and moving rooms more.

    In Create-a-Sim, 4 and 3 are so close that I refuse to choose a winner.

    Sims 3 did not have the gender options, either for the Sims themselves or for their clothes, there wasn't much variety in body shape (blocky), but you could customize the ever-loving plumbob out of their hair and eye colors, clothing colors and textures. (Denim underwear? Leather? Wicker? Sure!) I could spend hours customizing my Sim's look, then giving them 5 traits for a young adult, plus the two extras I usually got in university. My sims were individuals. I could do the same thing over and over, but it would turn out different every time because the Sims were different.

    That said, there were people I couldn't make because of those gender restrictions, and that's a big thing. If it wasn't for this and the building improvements, 3 would be a clear winner, even with blocky potato-sims.

    Wrap up my rant with whatever moral you like.

    TL/DR: I refuse to choose.

    Creativity tools is where Sims 3 overtakes Sims 4. Sims 4 creativity tools are limiting as one cannot create beyond the static lots, restrictions on what can be placed in what neighborhood, cannot create lots or neighborhoods. I do like the building tools but for me Sims 2 is best but I can say what is best w/o feeling sorry and in those areas I mentioned Sims 3 takes hands down and I never had problem with how my Sims looked for I am more into what the game can do and play. Sims to me is more about artwork and I love gameplay over artwork.

    Sims 4
    My answer is based on which one I like to play the most.

    I love TS1 and it has a special place in my heart, but I usually end up grinding magic items or celebrity stars or something and it's much harder to keep my sims happy and I just find it hard to create stories in it, because it's a bit like the same day over and over again with different events, because sims don't have days off from work unless they go on a holiday and the sims don't get older and there are no seasons, but I love the world and the humour it has and the detailed weird items and things that happen.

    TS4 is more relaxing to play and I can actually create and play stories in it (though I'd love to see more gameplay options like animations and things to do and sims to have different personalities). TS2 is great too and I probably played it the most, but I don't know... my current playstyle suits better for TS4 and I really like the CAS options.

    While I love Sims 4, Sims 3 will always be my favorite. I played it for hours even though it had horrible lag on my old computer. I still love the game for all of the different things you could do. Sims 4 is definitely a close second place though, followed by Sims 2 in third.

    But Sims 2 will always have a special place in my heart ❤

    I still remember the story when you told us about your son with the burglars in the sims 2 , stealing his sims bed as soon as his sim got out it 🤣🤣, I had the mental image in my head and I couldn't stop laughing lol @elanorbreton

    Wow, fancy you remembering that! That game did bring me and my kids a lot of joy and laughter. We still tease my eldest all these years later cos he used to send his cat to work in a taxi while his sim lazed around at home and eventually he had his cat taken away from him for neglect :D

    Simply iconic. Sims 1 and Sims 2 invented everything we expect of a sims game.

    Sims Bustin' Out for PS2. A spin-off game, but it's near and dear to my heart.

    I have nothing but nostalgia for Sims 1 and 2 but Sims 4 is my favorite! I can't express how much fun I have just playing with my Sims!

    Been trying. I would love for the Sims 1 and 2 to be playable on Steam. There are a lot of old games I played as a kid coming on Steam and Epic Store. I'm pretty excited about Kingdom Hearts coming on PC.

    Yes I would love to see that one but EA/Maxis may strip that version of features. :)

    The Sims2 will always be my favorite. It had the best overall gameplay out of all of series and was more fun.

    Sims 3 & Sims 4 are both my favorite.

    Sims 2
    This is almost impossible for me to decide. :D
    Sims 1 for the nostalgia factor. Everything was new and never before experienced! At the time, it was out of this world to me.
    Sims 2 because it took everything the original had and made it 10x better - again making things never seen before.
    Sims 3 because of the open world, better graphics, and the CAS that was improved beyond my expectations.
    Sims 4 has its perks... but this is the first game where I felt like it could be improved with mods.
    Like Kpop? Like Greek Mythology?

    Sims 4
    After playing the Sims 2 for a few days and refreshing my memory of it I’ve decided that the Sims 4 is my favourite.

    I never really liked the Sims 1 because it lacked natural aging.

    I absolutely loved the Sims 2 back in the day and I still enjoy playing it now but not as much as I do the Sims 4.

    The Sims 3 I have always struggled to love because it’s never wanted to work well for me no matter what computer I have.

    The mobile games have both failed to keep my interest for longer than a few days.

    I had so much fun with Sims 3.

    The open world, the ability to live on boats, time travel, werewolves... it had some really fun features, but I think Sims 4 will catch up and overtake it eventually.

    Sims 2 is probably my favorite one out of the entire franchise. I remember being excited about the life stages on the game as well as playing in different neighborhoods. Other games I enjoyed were Sims:Bustin' Out and Urbz.
