The well known and well loved video game, The Sims, has just celebrated its 20th birthday. Many of us grew up “playing with life” and as the game grew and evolved, we grew and evolved with it, having new expectations, new favorites, and unchegabelty the same extreme amount of fun. What makes The Sims so special, or even the best ever? Gamivo has some answers for you.
It Lets You Escape And Make Use Out Of Your Imagination
It’s never good to run away from problems, but coming from 2020, who wouldn’t want to run teleport to a different, better reality, and escape from everything that’s been going on in the world for months now? While voyages to parallel universes aren’t possible yet, it is sure possible and much safer to just disappear for a few hours in The Sims world.
And the possibilities are limited only by players’ imagination. Some of them will focus on creating Sims, playing with every detail of their face and body. Others will open up the game purely for the fun of building and decorating, and thanks to the game’s still improving building system, it’s becoming more easy and more fun with every expansion pack, stuff pack and update.
And with The Sims 4, that definitely offers the best graphics yet, it’s pure pleasure to just dive into creating. Build a 4×5 home surrounded by Brindelton Bay’s forests, create a haunted palace on Windendburg’s hills or an A list celebrity worthy residence in Del Sol Valley. Or just go crazy, and be one of those simmers who recreate Disney Worlds, build whole medieval villages or houses known from Netflix shows and movies.
And once you have your sims and your house, start playing! And there is so much to do. Whether you like good old family game play, or you focus on achieving your sims aspirations, or you just want to see the sims’ world burn – get one of The Sims game keys we offer and help yourself!
Even Though It Can Get Crazy, It Still Simulates Real Life
Like we pointed out earlier, The Sims games allow you to go absolutely bananas when it comes to creating sims, building and storylines, so you can simulate whatever crazy and fun story you could ever imagine. However, first of all, it’s a simulation of life. And if you’d like to live vicariously through your sims, get the edgy haircut, build that dream house, get married and have those 6 beautiful kids, this is a way of doing it in the virtual world, and getting some satisfaction from it.
Make yourself feel good. Build your dream home or apartment and imagine yourself in it. Get that amazing job you’ve always wanted. Find the love of your life, adopt three dogs and two cats, move to a volcanic island and learn how to dance tiki. Be whoever you want to be in The Sims, and then remember, that yes, it’s easier to do all those things in a video game, but it is definitely not impossible to do them in the real world too.
It Has Its History And Fun Easter Eggs
This one will be especially fun to those who started playing in 2000, with The Sims 1, and stayed faithful throughout the series. Because whether you would prefer The Sims 4 to have an open world like The Sims 3, The Sims 3 to have graphics from The Sims 4, and all of the games to have insane storylines and sassy characters from The Sims 2, one thing is for sure. You love all the little details throughout the series, and the way storylines are entwined with each other.
The search for Bella Goth, the conquests of Don Lotario, the bony Bonehilda (which makes a big come back in The Sims 4 newest expansion pack!), the Simlish song covers, the painting of the Tragic Clown, the Social Bunny, and many, many more things, that make it all so nostalgic. If you hear music from The Sims 1 build and buy mode and don’t feel the need to immediately type in “motherlode” and buy everything you can, then have you even lived?
It Makes You Feel Things
Apart from simulating that dream life you want and getting nostalgic while hearing music from old Sims games, The Sims can really make you feel stuff in many different ways. Even if your style of gameplay isn’t the most “conservative” one and you make your sims do crazy things, you’ll still spend a lot of time with them and sooner or later get invested in their stories.
You’ll discover that you don’t want them to die, and so you’ll bargain for their life with the Grim Reaper, or you’ll simply cheat them back to your game. Those 3D simulation pixels on the screen creating a tiny cute kitty, will make you go “awww” the same way a real life kitty would. You’ll be sad when your dog runs away, and angry when your spouse cheats on you.
And while you are feeling stuff, your sims are feeling stuff too. A new, complex “emotion” system has been introduced with The Sims 4. It makes your sims feel a bit more real and almost like you can relate to them. Each emotion can also boost certain skills and affect sims’ work performance in a good or bad way.
Also their relationships with other sims can become better or worse, purely based on what mood they were in during the interaction. All of this increases the gameplay depth and makes it simply more fun. So if you still haven’t experienced what it is to live with your grandma’s ghost, go to space or become a superstar, buy The Sims key that Gamivo has in its offer, and give it a try!
