The Sims, the #1 PC game franchise, has become 13 years old! The game was originally expected to only sell a few hundred thousand copies, which ended up becoming the franchise we all know and love today.

I originally found The Sims in my dad’s collection of games, and installed it (also found SimCity 3000 too). Since then I was hooked on the franchise and have followed it through from The Sims to The Sims 2 and The Sims 3 – plus it’s many spin-offs such as The Sims Medieval, The Sims Online and MySims.

The Sims franchise is still growing as people discover the franchise everyday, and I can’t wait to see what EA and Maxis have in-store for us over the next year.

Here’s to 13th year of The Sims franchise and many more hours of Simming!


  1. I really miss generation 1! That was my start to the franchise. I used to make rooms with lots of “trap” doors ala the Winchester Mansion 🙂
