Much like our gameplay styles, the way that we got into the games is unique  bear

I remember reading a PC gaming magazine when I was about nine or ten and it mentioned The Sims being in development. I loved Sim City, but the idea of creating families and filling up a town appealed to me even more, so I would try to read anything that I could find about the game.

The game was eventually released rather conveniently just after my eleventh birthday (yeah I've been twenty-three since 2012) and that was where my birthday money went. I was addicted from the get-go and always hoped that it would rain so that I could play.

At some point over the next few years, we had internet installed and I discovered Around The Sims, SimsPlay (Shoukier), The Well Dressed Sim and several other sites. I would go online on the family PC, save my downloads to a floppy disk (or ten) and then go back upstairs to my own PC to install my new CC. 

Roll on several years and I've loved every sims game since and I'm still filling my PC with too much CC Smile

How did you first get into the game?

I remember seeing TS1 on the shelves at Best Buy when I was, like, 8 or 9, and my dad refused to let me buy them. (of course, Dad was there to do Boring Grownup Shit like buying printers. Lots of time to stare longingly at the cases.)

When I was 18--so 2010--my twin and I 'borrowed' TS3 from a friend after playing it at her house and now I've been simming ever since! I tried TS2 a few years ago and it wasn't really my thing--although, gosh, they had some outfits I would have loved when I was 12--and I also tried the TS4 create-a-sim thing and hated it.
