  • I think out of Island Paradise or University then go with University; there's really so much more content. Out of everything though I'd recommend World Adventures - there is so much milage here and it's generally the most fun I've had with any expa…
  • Oof! This was a difficult one for me, and reading through these posts has made me even less decisive! I think TS1 and TS2 both have some absolute tunes. The menu music for TS1 I think is better, although both are stupidly nostalgic for me. TS2 h…
  • I mean, I've definitely clocked more hours on TS2, and then probably TS1 as a second, but I only play TS3 now.
  • This is an interesting poll. I'm 27 and have been playing since TS1 came out (can't remember if I got it in 2000 or 2001...), but yeah I've pretty much been hooked since then. I'm still playing TS3 regularly.
  • You (by the sounds of it!) WMLT win an argument on a topic they know nothing about?
  • I never realised until very recently that some sims have a hilarious post-woohoo strut, instead of walking normally. Don't know how this one slipped by unnoticed for so long but it really made me laugh!
  • I have yet to play TS4. It didn't grab me the same way the other games have, mainly in that there didn't seem to be anything new or innovative. By the looks of things in this thread, people felt the same way about TS3, but I really felt like EA dr…
  • Again like a few others have mentioned, I try not to really use cheats these days, just because the pay off of a successful family feels greater when you've really earned it yourself. That being said, I sometimes relapse and go for a cheeky motherl…
  • I think I used to be way more into creating people I know, so would use real names. These days I'll try and be a little more imaginative and come up with names I haven't really heard before.
  • I just remember seeing the first SIms game kicking about in a few different PC shops. We had a Mac at the time and it was cool to see it being sold for Mac as well as PC - there were so few games that were built for Mac. I was also already playing…
  • I remember thinking TS2 graphics were still pretty good. Booted it up after playing a lot of TS3 and found my memory had just tricked me. TS2 was great at the time but I don't think it has aged well - the gameplay is still solid though!
  • Oh awesome! I didn't realise they were that rare, but yeah I never experienced anything like that in TS3, or again in TS2 for that matter.
  • I personally love The Sims from a roleplaying perspective, while having all the creativity and customisation you could ask for. I think as a lot of people have said in this thread; it's an amazing tool for helping people develop and learn about cer…
  • I would probably end up paying for it. Does anyone else get scared about playing it now and feeling disappointed? I don't know if I'd want it to taint my nostalgia...
  • I feel that the way I end up playing almost always leads me to revisit the same family about once or twice a year. It always feels oddly wholesome to return to an old save.
  • I had a single guy sim who got abducted by aliens, got pregnant, and gave birth to an alien son. Don't know if this happens a lot but it was certainly a surprise to me!
  • Don't get me wrong, I absolutely loved TS1, but TS2 gave the opportunity for so many more meaningful moments. Having an actual life cycle, family trees, aspirations, and the university expansion were all killer additions that made TS2 so amazing.
  • Going a bit old school here but The Tragic Clown from The Sims 1. I know you were meant to hate him... it was very effective. It was made worse due to the fact that at the time I had no idea why he appeared, or how to get rid of him! He ruined so…
  • The Sims 1: Making Magic The Sims 2: University The Sims 3: World Adventures I have yet to play The Sims 4... I thought these would be difficult to answer but actually didn't take long to have a think back and really know which are my favou…
