In the year 2000, a little game by the name of “The Sims” was born. This game has a special place in many people’s hearts. I can remember spending many hours on this as a young kid. By now, there are four Sims games, with the latest one having been released in 2014. Back when actual discs of PC games were in abundance in tech stores, you could always find a copy of the Sims. Like a handful of other games at the time, the expansions for this could be found on an entirely different disc when they were released. If you want to get your hands on a copy of any of the Sims games, your best bet is to go to the online store called Origins.
Now onto what the Sims actually is all about. If you haven’t picked up on what it is by just the name, it is a simulator for “people”, or more commonly known as your “sims.” There are many different things that you can do in this game. For starters, it is an option to create your very own sim. This entails things such as what they look like, dress like, and their traits. Once you have your sim(s) squared away, it is time to either move them into a pre-built house with your starter funds, or you can just try and make a starter house from scratch.
From this point, it is recommended to try and get the sim a job. Now this can be achieved by either looking in the newspaper or looking on the computer. By doing this, the sims will earn money and eventually get promoted in that job if you were to keep them in there long enough. If you don’t wish to start a sim from scratch, there are always pre-built sims already in homes that you can play with.
What I had just went through is the “proper” way to play the game. If you are a fan of the Sims, then I am sure you know exactly what I mean by this. The “improper” way to play the game is to try and sabotage your sims by being an awful human being to them. If that doesn’t tickle your fancy, then you can always put in a bunch of cheat codes to have all the money that you want.
