German site published a short article with a number of pictures that briefly covers The Sims franchise over the course of its 10 year lifespan. - 10 Years of The Sims

For Will Wright has been his persistence with the Sims-genre more than paid: In 2002, he was inducted into the Academy of Interactive Arts and Sciences Hall of Fame, where he comfortably alongside greats such as designer Sid Meier and Shigeru Miyamoto. In addition, he was able to meet with Spore’s design dream of his life, even if it is commercially light years away from the ledge. But Will can now be no matter: After all these years after he used his head-sized glasses, and his mustache has separated Weird Al, he advantage of the situation, left EA and formed his own “think tank” called “Stupid Fun Club” – The Others responsible in an advisory capacity for EA. Thus the circle closes again. Thank you, Will!
