I never did get the opportunity to play this EP as I came into The Sims when Sims 2 was out and just before Sims 3 was released. From what a very dear friend tells me it was one of the best EP’s The Sims had made.
If you’re like me and have no idea what this EP was all about, SimGuruLyndsay is having a broadcast on February 27, 2014 at 10 AM PST. You can join her on The Sim Twitch channel as two special guests and she play this iconic EP.
Here’s a little history lesson on The Sims (or commonly referred to as The Sims 1, TS1 ). The Sims is an actual spin off from Maxis’ co-founder, Will Write’s game SimCity series. A single player life simulation game, you are able to (as with following TS games); create your Sim, their home, build their life. In essence you (the player) are God. There are seven expansion packs for TS1;
Living Large (in the UK Livin’ it up)
Vacation (in the UK On Holiday)
The Sims 1 was released on February 4, 2000 and was the start to The Sims series as we know it today. The Sims 2 (TS2) released in September 2004, The Sims 3 (TS3) released in November 2006 and upcoming The Sims 4 (TS4) set to release fall of 2014.
You can join SGLyndsay on Twitch.TV February 27 at 10 AM PST. I still have this nagging question tho. Why? Why are they doing a live broadcast on this EP and why now? I guess we will find out in due time if there is indeed a reason or if it is just a trip down memory lane.
