Sims Through The Ages

Updated on July 2, 2012

What is The Sims?

The Sims is the most fun, entertaining and addictive game ever made. Almost everyone who plays it for more than 2 hours will get hooked and will forever love it. Sims is a game where you are the one in control over others; you control their motions, thoughts, wants/needs, actions, relationships, career and property. You could create a completely poor Sim, or a rich Sim, bent on taking over the world.

The Original ' Sims '

The first version of the Sims was created in 2000. It was originally launched on Windows based PC's and was a revolution because no other game had been quite like this one. It took off quickly, and the Sims was more popular than ever.
I was fortunate enough to play this version. It was amazing, though the graphics were nothing compared to those of today, it was still spectacular. It features expansion packs which you could buy and add into your game, making your Sim able to have pets (Sims Pets), or do magic (Makin' Magic). I must say, the best of those expansion packs was the one which allowed you to play with magic.
Now, the first Sims had errors, but not too many. It also had a couple cheat codes to give you money or other things. But none of those things could compare to the next generation of Sims: The Sims 2.

The Sims 2

The Sims 2 showed the world that even though the original Sims was popular, it couldn't compare to the SIms 2. It was released in 2004. People could now import things, get things off the internet, download them, add them to their game, and still had all those lovely expansion packs. It also features special supernatural creatures that your Sim could be transformed into.

The cheat codes for Sims 2 were everywhere, I could even recite some, such as: 'motherlode' which gave you 50,000 Sim dollars. The Sims 2 was even more of a success and therefore the designers had to create more expansion packs. Some expansion packs that were created were for special clothes, such as the H&M expansion pack, or the Teen expansion pack. You could still buy the classic expansion packs though; Pets, Seasons, etc.

Again, even though the SIms 2 was so popular, that didn't stop the designers from creating the SIms 3.

Which Version Was Your Favourite?

The Sims 3

The Sims 3 was an instant success, selling 1.4 million copies in its first week. It was first released in June of 2009, running both Mac and Windows versions on the same disk. Sims could now 'wish' for things instead of wanting or fearing something. By making the wish come true, the user would create good karma. If they gained enough good karma, they get a 'special power' to use on the household or a single Sim.

The Sims 3 was released for PC, Nintendo 3DS, Playstation, and Xbox all gaining it more and more popularity.
