The Sims Memories.

So, for today's post I thought I would do something a little different. As I'm sure you're aware The Sims has come a long way since its original days and is now on its fourth edition having recently celebrated 14 years of The Sims. I'm aware that if you've never had an interest in computer games, then this post won't interest you but I'm hoping that just like me and my sister you were addicted to 'The Sims' since Bella and Mortimer first appeared on our screens. Despite the newest additions, I think my all time favourite series has to be The Sims 2. Also, please note these images are not my own. So, without further ado, here are my favourite memories from the first ever Sims.

The Original Families.
As I still play The Sims 4, I know that the original families from years ago still appear and are available to play - but in my eyes you can't beat the Goth family from back in the day. They're still around to this day but you can't beat the good old days!
The Village.
I used to love how there was just one simple village to choose from, with lots of cute little houses and the massive mansion in the corner. All you needed to do was to pop over to your neighbours for a chat, none of this changing worlds business!

Getting Married.
Do you remember how hard it was to get married back in the days?! You had to make sure that the other sim was well fed, wide awake and in a good mood. Even then, they'd come up with these terrible excuses, meaning you'd have to try over and over until they were finally in a good mood!

Creating A Sim.
These days we can even change the shape of a sims nose, mouth and ears as well as giving them pink highlights in their hair and adjusting the size of their muscles - but it wasn't always so creative! Remember when you could only choose from a simple head or an outfit?! How could I forget the mini bio we could make of each sim? I've always loved to write so plenty of tales were made up about each Sim.

Expansion Packs.
Quite possible the best games of all times. 1) Hot Date - making restaurants, dressing up, romantic meals and improving relationships. 2) Unleashed - Pets! The first ever pets to hit the sims. 3) Makin' Magic - This was my favourite game EVER. Making spells, going to carnivals, dualling with other sims: ridiculous amounts of fun. 4) On Holiday - skiing holidays, building snowmen, beach holidays, building hotels - the possibilities were endless. 5) Superstar - The chance to be a celebrity, we could even be Christina Aguilera! Remember the crazy obsessed fan who would follow you everywhere if you finally made it as a superstar?

Did you used to play The Sims? Are you still a Sims fan? x

  11. I love this! Old school Sims was the best! I stopped at Hot Date - I think my computer was close to blowing up so I couldn't add any more! I got one of the newer ones a couple of years back but it just didn't feel the same.




  12. Ohh I do miss The Sims. Half terms were made for Sim playing! There was nothing like having a baby after meeting 10 minutes prior and just from a kiss!

  17. Omg this takes me back a few years! I'm a Sims addict and I've just bought the newest one so this looks so strange haha. My favourite ever was Sims 2 Open For Business! I was awesome being able to open your own shop x

  18. I was completely obsessed with The Sims!! Love love this post. My absolutely favourite was sims 2 as well, the excitement of getting the toddlers and teens and all the new clothes was amazing. I think between 1 and 2 was where the biggest changes were. I used to love the stress of it all, so many kids of mine ended up going to military school! My favourite expansion pack too was making magic, I always wondered why they didn't do that in the later editions! I need to get back into it but I just really don't have the time!

  19. Great post - what funny memories. I must admit that I don't remember all of that stuff from the first Sims, but Pets and Makin' Magic were definitely my favourite expansion packs!

  20. Aghh back in the day when I used to spend hours and hours building houses and making families on the sims. I swear I was addicted !. I had every single one since the first one came out (except for a few expansion packs) and I gotta admit I loved them all x This was such a brilliant post :) Thanks for bringing back some sweet childhood memories !! ahahx
