The Sims [PC Game]
Developed by: Maxis - Electronic Arts (2000) - Life Development Sim - Rated: Teen
The Sims is a life-building simulation with emphasis on intimate details of individual characters rather than expansion of an entire
society or civilization. You are in control of nearly every aspect of the lives of the individuals who make up your chosen
population in the neighborhood. Characters are developed from the ground up and you infuse and mold them with personalities,
looks, desires, moods, urges, living arrangements, career and personal choices, life styles, and reactions. Five personality traits
are rated from zero to ten and include basic areas of sloppy to neat, shy to outgoing, lazy to active, serious to playful, and
grouchy to nice.
Management in The Sims revolves around decision-making. From physical environmental layouts (homes, rooms, paint, tiles,
floors, walls, window placement), to mental outlook (personalities, motives, needs), emotional makeup (jealousy, marriage,
having kids) and skills (cooking and mechanical abilities, charisma, mental and physical levels of development) of your Sims, you'll
be immersed in their daily lives. Activities include buying and placing up to 150 unique items for households and offices, selling
and replacing worn out furnishings, and otherwise building and maintaining the world in which your Sims live.
The interface is mouse-driven, with points-and-clicks that works in conjunction with a myriad of development tools offered for
use in establishing your Sims' environments. Placement of walls, windows and doors, floor layouts in homes, terrain adjustments,
water and pool tools, fencing options, balustrades, columns, wallpaper, stairs, fireplaces, plants, roofing, furnishings, and
second-story dwellings are just some of the hands-on development options that will need your attention.
You'll guide your Sims in life-development phases such as having children, feeding hungers, basic survival needs, hygiene,
comfort, energy levels, fun, social interaction (e.g., dancing, affairs, marriage), body-building, cooking, skill development, and
even bladder control. Chemistry between your Sims is a product of your manipulations as well -- slippery, smooth, introverted,
extroverted, positive, and negative thinkers -- all form the level and style of interaction through conversations with other Sims.
