About the game
Play with Life.
Create the lives you’ve always wanted!
Ready to live a freer, more creative life? In The Sims™ 3, you can let your fantasies run wild as you design your ideal world. Start with your Sim, refining each shape, color and personality trait until you get the precise person that pleases you. Design your dream home, but don’t let a grid limit you; place, rotate and stack furniture and walls freely and to your heart’s content.
Once the “hard work” is over, it’s time to be a mentor. Guide your Sim’s path through life, developing a career, finding love, and pursuing dreams and desires. Spending time with friends and family is just as important as mastering painting or accumulating knowledge.
Take things to the next level and record movies of your Sim’s adventures and share them with the ever-growing and thriving community. With a huge catalog of expansion packs and fun objects to discover, there is no end to the possibilities awaiting you. It all begins here; your adventure awaits!
The Sims™ 3 has a vast variety in base game content that will have you occupied for hours. It is a fun childhood classic that some would say rivals The Sims™ 4.
Explore the world with a large open world map, make friends, get a job and expand your house! Start a family, all is possible in The Sims™ 3.
Looking for more? Check out the expansion packs! The Sims™ 3 expansion packs add a much wider scope of realism and enjoyment to the game. For example, would you like a pet? or does your kids want another snow day?
The Sims™ 3 also has built in native modding support, allowing for fast and easy installation of mods. This also allows for more additional content to be installed, or even entire remasters!
The Sims™ 3 does unfortunately have a lot of compatibility issues with modern day hardware which may result in low performance. However, this can be managed by installing a few additional patches to your game, for example the 4GB patch.
Make sure that when you do use expansion packs, that you only use a select few expansion packs. The recommended is 4 be active at once.
The Sims™ 3 is the third game in the Maxis “The Sims Franchise” series. It is widely considered to be the best entry to The Sims franchise
It is highly recommended amongst the community, and recommended by myself.
