Best The Sims Games of All Time


The Top Ten

1 The Sims 3

Well, I have the Sims 3 now, and I must say it's way better than the Sims 4. There is so much more customization! It's more realistic! Open world is also very fun! I wish I never got Sims 4. I used to love the Sims 4, but now I might never go back to it (if I do, it will only be because of my legacy challenge). I feel like I wasted money on Sims 4. I got the Sims 4 when I barely knew much about the Sims 3. That was a big mistake. I probably only liked it because I never played any other Sims game (besides Freeplay) before it, but now that I have, I understand why people hate the Sims 4 so much. Also, I expected it to take a while to open like my Sims 4 does, but it doesn't. I also expected it to be laggy, but it hasn't lagged at all! Sims 3 is amazing!

Definitely the best in terms of variety, gameplay, realism, open world and customisation. So much to do, it never gets boring. Love it.

I really want to get the Sims 3, but I think it would be really laggy on my computer, so I'm stuck with Sims 4.

The only game with the real create a Style.

2 The Sims 2

The evolution of gaming both this and sims 3 are some of the world's best video games. Sims 4 is nothing compared to these and who cares if Sims 4 has best graphics because it's gameplay is nowhere near the level of 2 and 3

Honestly I feel like this is the best.. it's so much more charming than sims 4 and there are so many sweet details, like pulling bottles from beneath the counter and children dancing on their parents feet. I love this game, especially all the pre-mades and backstories. I think the pre-mades are 1000% better than the ones in the other games.

My favorite sims game I love sims 3 also

Love Sims 2 so much, but I don’t feel in the mood to write a long article about it!

3 The Sims

I Absolutely LOVE the original. So Nostalgic, it stings you! Love the danger music!

I remember playing The Sims 1 when I was a kid, It was the most fun I ever had at the moment, and I still remember that... - Valakaur

And I don't know what I can do

This is my fave always. Its when you realise video games aren't all childish. Even if they behave a bit stupid e.g. run up to the fire, the burglar obeys the police.

4 The Sims 4

This game is overhated I think its pretty good.

This is not as good as Sims 3, but still fantastic! - benjigoo

It shouldn't be on the top, and the worst Sims game is The Sims Online (2002) because you could only play it if you lived in America or Japan. They forgot about other countries that played it

Love The Game currently doing legacy challenge best sims game

23 The Sims 4: City Living

One of the best and most original expansion packs ever made.

24 The Sims Social

This was cool because The Sims Online only existed in USA and Japan, so other countries finally had a chance for an online version but you needed Facebook, sadly its no longer around.

26 The Sims: Makin' Magic
27 The Sims: Livin Large
