Once upon a time, in a galaxy far far away, … oops, wait, wrong intro.
Many moons ago, three young-ish ladies met on a sims forum. One is crazy, one has ADD (aka Sim Fickle-nitus), and one is a creative genius. We’ll leave it to you to figure out who’s who. Nevertheless, they bonded over their hobby and they soon became firm friends. Now, not so young-ish anymore but still crazy as ever, they decided to combine their creativity and share it with the world … or the sims community at least. And the rest is, or will be, history.
I’ve been Simming since February 4, 2000 – the release date of the first Sims game.
And since then, I’ve had no life.
Seriously, though: I’ve had a blast with this game over the years, and even more fun being part of the community, which never fails to amaze me with its awesomeness. I’m proud be a part of it, and to know so many talented, generous, and often hilarious Simmers.
Since I own all the discs, I assume it’s safe to say I started out with TS1 but I don’t remember anything about it. My real love for the sims started with TS2, which I dropped like a hot potato when TS3 was released. It was the open world that did it.
Met some wonderful people along the way and now I’m apparently a musketeer. And my parents thought I’d never amount to anything.
Who would have thought that Animal Crossing® could have lured me into the Sims? But it did! I hogged my kids’ Nintendo game and was obsessed with getting more stuff so I could sell more stuff so I could buy more stuff for my little house!
One. Ad. On. TV. That’s all it took. One ad for TS2, showing all the different ways one room could look, and I was hooked. (I remember it like it was yesterday. *sigh* )
Been simming ever since.
