All about The Sims: what is The Sims?

To start this guide with everything about The Sims, it’s worth understanding that The Sims is a series of life simulation games developed by Maxis and published by Electronic Arts. In the game, you create and control characters (sims), design their homes, satisfy their basic needs and guide their daily lives.

In practice, the characters can work, socialize, develop relationships, build careers and achieve personal goals.

And would you believe that The Sims is over 20 years old? The game was created in 2000, and since then it has had 4 main titles (The Sims, The Sims 2, The Sims 3 and The Sims 4), each with various expansions and game packs. The franchise also has games for consoles and mobile versions, such as The Sims Bustin’ Out, The Sims FreePlay and The Sims Mobile.

How The Sims works

In order to understand how The Sims works, it’s worth first considering the game’s two main modes: Create a Sim and Build Mode. In the first, you create your family – you choose the name, edit all the appearance details, the clothes, the family ties and even the personality traits – and in the second, you build the entire plot (which is usually the family home, but you can also create commercial plots, such as restaurants, bars, etc).

The game starts at the Create a Sim stage, so the first thing you do is create the character. But if you prefer, you can also choose ready-made sims, play with families that already exist in that world.

What is the purpose of The Sims?

You define the objective of The Sims: when you create the characters, as well as choosing the personality traits, you also select the Aspiration (which is the Sims’ long-term desire, and represents their personal goals and objectives in life).

The aspiration could be to reach the level of a certain career, earn a number of Simoleons (The Sims currency) or even meet a soul mate.

What is the history of The Sims?

That’s what sets the game apart. Instead of trying to understand what the story of The Sims is, the idea is that you create your own story, because there is no linear narrative with a defined story, like most games.

Although it is mainly known for its sandbox gameplay, in which players have the freedom to create their own stories and experiences, over the years some parallel or pre-configured narratives have emerged. A notable example is the Coffin family, one of the pre-made families present in The Sims base game.

The PC version is the most traditional and offers the full game experience, including all the expansions, content packs and additional features, but the game has also been released for consoles such as PlayStation, Xbox and Nintendo over the years. Games adapted for consoles offer a fine-tuned experience.

As already mentioned, there are also versions of The Sims available for mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets, but the experience is much reduced compared to the PC games.

Curiosities about The Sims

As well as finding out all about The Sims, it’s worth keeping an eye on the curiosities! One of them is that the concept of The Sims was inspired by a fire in designer Will Wright’s house. He observed how people react and deal with stressful situations, which led him to develop a life simulation game.

Another of the curiosities about The Sims is that the Sims speak a language of their own called Simlish, which was created specifically for the game. This language is made up of nonsense sounds and letters.

Several real celebrities have appeared in The Sims games over the years, including Katy Perry, Avril Lavigne, Bruno Mars and more.

Over the years, more than 30 expansions and content packs have been released for the series, adding a wide variety of new features, items and game mechanics.
