Best The Sims Games of All Time


The Top Ten

1 The Sims 3

The Sims 3 should be #1. It's the best of the series. Seriously. Everything about it is perfect, and you never run out of things to do.

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!

The best of this series. Hands down. It has the most to do, best graphics, best Sims, eye. This should be first

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.

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

The sims 2 had the most charm to it altogether combined with a really fun game, it's soundtrack is nolstalgic and brings back memories of me playing this as a 9 year old about 4 years ago

It is so realistic and there are lots of things you can build.

It is really old now. The sims use flip phones and Early 2000s computers, but it's honestly the most realistic, and unlike some of the other Sims games, the sims don't look like plastic without CC. And you never run out of things to do. It has so many expansions and add ons, and you can pretty much do whatever you want. There's a lot more gameplay freedom, and it's honestly worth the 10 minutes it takes to load vs the 30 seconds the later games take. - modern_music_is_stupid

3 The Sims 4

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

I personally think this should be at the top 'cause it has good graphics and game play! I don't have the game but my friend does and we used to play it all the time and I wish to have a pc or laptop so that I can play the sims 4! Please vote for this by far the best

This game is overhated I think its pretty good.

4 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.

14 The Sims 3: Ambitions
15 The Sims 3: Katy Perry Sweet Treats
16 The Sims 2: Nightlife

My favorite Sims expansion pack yet.

17 The Sims: Makin Magic
18 The Sims Mobile

A great game as EA is consistently updating it with new features, items and events. This game has SO MUCH potential.

19 The Sims Medieval
20 The Sims: Hot Date
21 The Sims 4: City Living

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

22 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.

23 The Sims: Unleashed
24 The Sims: Superstar
25 The Sims: Makin' Magic
26 The Sims: Livin Large
27 Mysims Kingdom
