"The Sims" is a close up look at a family of Will Wright's critically acclaimed "Sim City" series. In this game you create a family of "Sims" and build a house for them on the lot they are put on. As the game progresses, your Sims lives take a turn for better or worse. You get jobs and earn money, buy equipment to increase your skills, make friends with other Sims, fall in love and get married and ultimately have a bouncing baby Sim. However, disasters do strike in the Sim world; pipes can burst and start floods, fires can break out and burn up things, you can get robbed by burglars, and if not properly taken care of; your Sims can starve to death. The game includes many real-life aspects as realistically as possible. Who knows? Maybe your Sims will finally be able to buy that Plasma Vision Widescreen TV some day... Written by jondaman816

Did You Know?


Will Wright wanted a unique language for The Sims that was filled with emotion. Gerri Lawlor and Stephen Kearin, actors from the San Fransisco Bay area were brought in. They created "Simlish" through improvisation sessions in the studio. See more »

Someone finally made a game for women, and it was a bestseller.
16 July 2002 | by (Baltimore) – See all my reviews

A game company finally made a game that women and girls really enjoy, and it's not a syrupy-sweet Barbie adventure, nor is it some journey into feminist history. Instead, it features the things that we really like, such as relationships, clothes, interesting careers, building and decorating homes, and trading items online with our friends. > The Sims has been the best-selling game in the country for years, and it still has the field to itself. Somehow the rest of the computer game industry hasn't caught on to the fact that there's an enormous market waiting for them if they can just manage to produce fun games that don't center around killing and which have a palette beyond the army fatigues and blood mix that makes the screen a misery to look at in so many of the games I see my boyfriend playing. The Sims impresses me more than any game since Oregon Trail (and that was in the eighties!).
