Best The Sims Games of All Time

The Top Ten
1 The Sims 3 The Sims 3 Product Image

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 Sims 3 has the best design and gameplay. The Sims here look the most realistic and the least cartoonish out of the entire series. The Sims 4 sucks and is so difficult to navigate. It's sad that they stopped making The Sims 3 expansion packs.

For me it's between 3 and 4, but I have to go with 3. 4 is much more fun to create with, thanks to better graphics, CAS, and Build Mode, but 3 just has so many more features that they for some reason cut (probably so EA could make it DLC and get more $$), most disappointingly the open world. I hate having to now go through a loading screen just to visit the house across the street.

The Sims 3 is much better than the sims 4. The sims 4 feels empty and kinda boring I have 650 hours played in 4 so I shuld know. I remember being so amazed by the open world and color palette. And the interactions and everything? The sims 4 don't even have thiefs and police or sea swiming... I still play it beacause openworld is important to me and not just it.

2 The Sims 2 The Sims 2 Product Image

While I enjoy all four sims games to a degree and the original being my nostalgic favourite in the franchise, Sims 2 is the best in terms of gameplay and story building. All of the wonderful details and animations make it charming in a way that the original, 3 and 4 just can't compete with. They all have good points and bad points; Sims 2 just has more good points than bad points compared to the other three.

Easily the most fun game in the series. Graphics are a bit meh and it doesn't have the open world thing in the same way but gameplay peaked at 2.

The Sims 2 is hands down the best The Sims game ever made, the amount of content is amazing.

The Sims 2 feels like it was made whit love and dedication, Is the most entertaining and the most realistic and complete life simulator, ever made.

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.

3 The Sims The Sims Product Image

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...

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

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 The Sims 4 Product Image

I don't understand why people always has to compare this game to the Sims 3. This game isn't the Sims 3 and it never will be because it's the Sims 4 it has its own identity. This game comes with more pros than cons but so does the Sims 3 sure open world sounds good in THEORY...but for most people it just didn't work. Don't knock the Sims 4 till you try it plus it is still getting DLC that continues to make it better and better!

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

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

Its good, don't compare it to the Sims 3, they are of different ages. But I can't lie. Without mods this would be boring ngl

5 The Sims 2: Pets The Sims 2: Pets Product Image

Really enjoyed the game and I loved the fact that the buildings would change with the more money you spent... I always oved this game

6 The Sims 2: Castaway The Sims 2: Castaway Product Image

Boring and not necessary.

Lots of fun and a great game generally, but pretty buggy and slow

My absolute favorite. but was laggy and hard to pick up some stuff, actually all stuff

7 The Sims 2: Apartments The Sims 2: Apartments Product Image
8 The Sims 3: Pets The Sims 3: Pets Product Image

Back when lets could get jobs. It was one of my favorite aspects of pet expansions

9 The Sims 3: Generations The Sims 3: Generations Product Image

10 The Sims Bustin' Out The Sims Bustin' Out Product Image
The Contenders
11 The Sims 2: Nightlife The Sims 2: Nightlife Product Image

My favorite Sims expansion pack yet.

12 The Urbz: Sims In the City The Urbz: Sims In the City Product Image

This game was literally my childhood, I used to play it nonstop. Pretty sad that the sequel was cancelled though...

Very weird when I first played it but thereafter I became the richest guy in less than a day

13 The Sims 3: Ambitions The Sims 3: Ambitions Product Image
14 The Sims Medieval The Sims Medieval Product Image
15 The Sims Freeplay The Sims Freeplay Product Image

The most annoying sims game there is. No question

16 The Sims 3: Katy Perry Sweet Treats The Sims 3: Katy Perry Sweet Treats Product Image
17 The Sims: Makin Magic The Sims: Makin Magic Product Image
18 The Sims Mobile

I think it's a pretty cool app. But sometimes it gives you too many tasks at once, which is a bit annoying.

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