When the original game, The Sims, came out back in 2000, it was an immediate hit. Players have become fascinated with making virtual people, building them apartments, sending them off to work, getting married & starting a family, etc.
Then the second installment in the Sims series comes along and improves upon the first game in pretty much every way that you can think of. Stunning graphics, more interactions, more items, run your own business, the follow up game was better than its predecessor in every way.
Then the third installment in the Sims series comes along and improves upon the second game. It has a very realistic appearance and feel to it. It's almost like going out your own front door and being able to look round the corner and see your neighbors, look down the street see what's going on. That is what's so great about the Sims 3. It feels like you’re living in the real Sim city and noticing the goings on around you. The Sims themselves have very believable qualities to them as well.
The Sims 3 doesn't require a high end gaming PC or system specs I have an Intel Core i5 with Intel HD integrated graphics system, and the game has been running very well until now on almost maxed out settings.
It's been almost four years since the 2009 release of the Sims 3 and the Sims 4 is finally upon us after years of waiting; Electronic Arts and Maxis confirmed the Sims 4 will be available for PC and Mac somewhere in 2014. The Sims' fans will be happy, but not surprised to hear that The Sims 4 can run 100% offline means you don’t need a permanent internet connection to play the game.
