Abandonware DOS title

The Sims

The Sims, released in 2000, marked the beginning of the iconic life simulation series. Developed by Maxis and designed by Will Wright, the game quickly became a cultural phenomenon and a best-selling title.
In The Sims, players create and control virtual characters known as Sims. They can customize their Sims' appearance, personality traits, and aspirations, shaping their lives and interactions within the game world. Players are responsible for meeting their Sims' needs, such as hunger, hygiene, socialization, and rest, by directing them to perform various actions like cooking meals, using the bathroom, and interacting with other Sims.

The Sims review

Computer Gaming World (2000): "So, if you’re able to engage THE SIMS at one or inure of these levels, it’s a totally addicting, fascinating, charming, and - in small and unexpected ways— enlightening experience. That a piece of entertainment software is capable of evoking so much from its players is rate arid praiseworthy. But when one considers THE SIMS’ other achievements - among them, vigorously affirming the commercial viability of non-competitive games, enlisting players as co-creators at an unprecedented level, offering long-term support and extension of the game universe (for free), and, perhaps above all, getting garners to think about things like hygiene, nutrition, and a good night’s sleep (not that. it’s had any real effect around CGW)—one realizes that what we have in THE SIMS is an Important Game, one of those rarities that will make an indelible mark on our hobby. Such games only come around once in a while, and shouldn’t be missed."

Retro gamer collector's corner:

The game disc contains 37 tracks, of which 15 were published in 2007 as an official soundtrack album.

The Sims had a total of seven expansion packs released in its lifecycle. Each expansion generally adds new items, neighborhoods, characters, skins, and features.
