Had a blast back then playing Sims 1 and even the DSI version, but when second came out it started to lose its charm.
Don't get me wrong, I still own Sims 2 and 3, but the time I played them is so insignificant compared to the first one it might as well be non-existent.
I wonder if we could "measure" popularity of this series, how would the graph look like?
Does anyone seriously care anymore? I mean other than core audience.
A lot of Sims user "content" feels like "Baby shark, Nursery rhymes, that Spiderman/Elsa themed videos that exploited young children watching YouTube etc.
Played it a little back in the "dialup" days, but since you couldn't nuke something, why bother.
Now, I'm sure there are a ton of mods/cheats to do all sorts of things, but like everything else,
it is probably "woke".
