Hi, I am a designer and I am addicted to The Sims.

They say the first step to approaching a problem is admitting you have one, right? Well, The Sims is a life stimulation game that came out in the early 2000s, and I can honestly say that I have been highly addicted to this game since…well, the early 2000s. Other than being in control of a little town, my favorite thing about The Sims series is the opportunities to express your creative ability. Like creating homes and neighborhoods, another one of my favorite features of this game is Create-A-Sim. Create-A-Sim is the process in The Sims series where you create your person, couple, and/or family. From selecting personality traits, clothes, and physical features, The Sims allows the game users to design detailed attributes through this creative process. Since the game first started, the Create-A-Sim process has evolved greatly and now allows great detail to help design the most accurate individuals. It’s quite exciting! Be sure to check out the photographs and video below to get a closer look at where The Sims started to where the game has come now, 17 years later in The Sims 4.

    Honestly? Same though. I haven’t played it for a while, but there are times I’ll sink into a week-long Sims frenzy. One of my favorite aspects has always been the ability to create the characters, and if you’d let me I’d spend the entire day getting it just right. If you give me a choice between two similar games and one has the option of designing my own character, you can bet that’s the game I’m going to pick.

    Same here, I have been playing this game since I was young. I can create my own imagination home, characters, and life on this game. It’s really fun
