Started with The Sims just as The Sims 2 was coming out. After a few months got Sims 2 and fell in love. Spent way to much time on the game and became too attached to the families. Would literally morn over the loss of some of my familys. I did not go to The Sims 3 till Dec 2014 after my Sims 2 stopped working. I like a lot about the sims 3 but not as attracted to it. Probably a good thing. I am a 53 year old grandma of 13 and mother of 3. Retired photographer, now just babysit my grandkids.
