Hello everyone! I'm Corinne from Indiana! I have been playing Sims since the start. I was around 13 at the time and I remember playing Sims as soon as I got home from school and when I turned around to take a break the sun was back up and it was the next day! It was love at first gameplay I guess you could say. Being a teen mom at 16 my daughter and I spent a lot of time playing Sims 2 to occupy our time. She is now 15 and a Sim lover as well. I am also a stay at home mom with 9 kids ( 4 under 4) so if I get down time at night Sims is my relaxation. I love everything about the game so I do not even know where to start with that topic. I own all the games but right now I am playing Sims 4 one household for one year to see how far I can go. I enjoy building, posting to the gallery, and reading/watching all the amazing YouTuber content that is out here on Sims! Hope to make some Sim friends and share my stories with you all soon!

Hi everyone, I'm Brianna! I'm actually new to Sims and Forums. I saw Sims 4 on sale a few months back and decided to give it a go and now I'm obsessed. I'm a mom of 3 toddlers, so I can only find time to play once they're asleep. It causes me to probably stay up later than I should since I get so absorbed into the game! Looking forward to making some friends

Hi. I go by Baniduh Aine nowadays, but you're welcome to abbreviate my name in any way you want since I know it is a mess.
I've been playing the Sims ever since I stumbled upon Apartment Life some years ago, I don't actually remember the year, but maybe 2008? And so I've been playing it on and off for years, until the events of these past 2 years lead to me playing more and eventually get into creating stuff.
I exclusively play the Sims 4 these days, since my computer really doesn't like running the Sims 3, and may or may not have a slight CC addiction... Kidding, I have so much stuff I have to wait ages for the game to load every time. But I love it.
I find that the love for this game gives me an easy way to interact with other people, since being on the spectrum has always made me doubt myself when trying to communicate with others, and since I've been talking to other Simmers more and more I figured might as well get into the forums as well.
I hope to make some friends here or at the very least share the love for the Sims 4 haha

I’m here on the forums because I LOVE the sims. I may not have been around when the sims 1 came out. I’m mainly here to read stories but will occasionally post

Hi everyone! (Warning: I’m a bit bad at introducing/talking about myself) My name is Yanet and I’m new to the sims forum (even though I have the 9 year anniversary badge). I enjoy drawing, simming, and reading books from time to time.
I’ve just recently started using the forums, but I’ve been playing sims ever since Sims 2 pets came out on console for ps2. Being an animal lover myself you know I had to have about 5 dogs and 2 cats I currently play on PC and have all the expansions, I even have a tumblr where I post my pictures for others to enjoy. I’ve been playing the same household for about 3 years now I believe (i’ve taken small breaks in between due to rl) currently on generation 4 of the family.

Hey all, I’m inametaphor here and pretty much everywhere else too. I’ve been Simming for a few years now, but just starting to connect on the forums (though I’m in and out on the Reddit sub). Sims goes in boom and bust cycles for me - I’ll play for months at a time and then play some other games for awhile, but I always come back.
I split my time in game between building (especially community lots - how many museums does one simiverse need anyway) and starting long, drawn out challenges. Finishing a challenge is, uh, something I definitely want to do someday! Until then, I’ll continue juggling several different save files.
The most interesting build I’ve done recently is a medieval-ish manor for my wife’s D&D campaign. They’re having their players give me ideas and I get it decorate all the rooms. It’s definitely sent me digging into Build and Buy looking for hidden gems, and the players are super excited to have such interesting visual aids for the game.

Hey y'all, My name is Matt and my sims story is some what of a long one so I'll try to sum it up into a short story so theirs not to much of reading to do. (don't wanna bored you guys out) So my family of 10 have been playing the Sims since 2004 when the sims 2 came out. I remember my Mom & Dad going to Future Shop with us to buy new laptops when my Mom saw the Sims 2 on display and thought it looked interesting so she decided to buy it. Over the years of watching my siblings play the Sims I always thought it was a boring game and never showed interest in it and to be honest thought it was a girly game, lol. My Mom instantly got hooked onto the game as well as my siblings and soon later bought the expansion packs and new games as they were being released. I still showed no interest in playing until 2015 shortly after the Sims 4 came out. Here I am alone in my apartment, in my 20's with nothing to do that I decided to install the Sims 4 and give it a try!. To be honest I actually enjoyed the game and found it pretty fun and loved how creative you can get in the game. (what was I missing all of these years). Since then I haven't stooped playing the Sims and am still lovin' it!. I came here to Join the Sims forums mainly to ask a question about a Laptop I am wanting to purchase and haven't had much success finding my answer anywhere else so I'd thought I'd try here but I saw I needed to get points in order to ask a question so I thought I introduce myself and see where things go from here.

Hi, I have been playing the Sims since I was about 10 - Sims 1. There was a long spell of not playing... briefly I played it with my brother on the Playstation when I was about 16 or so. Then 2 years ago I got the sims 4 on sale and have been playing it in a more grown up way than when I was a kid.
Because I'm stuck inside most of the time with the pandemic, I build places that I miss going to. I have built my grandma's house, a friend's house, a palace that I really like, the new building across the street, and several places that I've lived. I also built the Simpsons house.
I also have created a me that's sick me (as I am now) and the me that I would be if I didn't get sick. They are twins, living in the same house, with different lives. It's kind of therapeutic. It's a thought experiment.
When I realised that there's so much cc and mods out there for free, that really levelled up my gameplay. There's a dearth of good curly hairs in the base game, so some good cc for curly hair has been the most recent thing to delight me. I only just recently bought some expansions/kits/whatever they're called. I do find them pricey but given I spend so much time on the sims, it only just about feels worth it. Maybe I'll get one a year...
I find that it's really good escapism. Even if I can't leave the house or socialise much because of this pandemic, at least I can pretend to be someone else, someone carefree. The Sims will never have to worry about a pandemic.

Hi, I’m RoseRyder, I received the Sims4 for ps4 for Christmas and I have no idea what I am doing lolz. Coming into a community this storied is like going to someone else’s high school reunion, everyone knows everyone and everything and you sit at the table wondering what is going on. Playing this game was instant addiction and I put in 56 hours of game play the very first week before I realized I needed to pace myself and not try to learn 20 years of game play all at once. I’ve been reading and watching a lot of tutorials and I feel like I sorta know what I’m doing now though obviously I have a lot to learn. This seems like a friendly, warm, super creative community and I’m excited to be here. Better late than never.
