Since its release in early 2000s, The Sims has enjoyed an enormous success. There haven’t yet been any serious competitors. The Sims is a unique game, but the life simulation genre continues to thrive. The Sims allows you to create your own “Sim”, build a house for it, interact with others Sims and live the life of your dreams. The players orchestrate their Sims’ mundane daily activities and their success depends on their decisions. Although nothing can compare to the full Sims experience here are some games that we think will appeal to fans of The Sims.
