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!

Key Features

  • Customize Your Sim: Mix and match a vast range of facial features and body types to get the look you want. Infuse your Sim with personality traits and help realize their dreams.
  • Stage Your Own Extreme Makeover: Decorate your Sim’s home however you want, neat or messy. Use odd angles, create tall stacks of items, and apply your favorite self-made pattern to the walls and floors.
  • Range From the Home: Get out of the house and explore the lively and entertaining neighborhood for the first time. Be a part of the larger online community!

I made a guy, met a girl, got married, had kids, got some mods, and well it ended with me, my wife, and my next door neighbor eating my kids........................................... So if you're into that kind of stuff get this game. Also if you have no life of your own you can make one on this game. Though eventually you will ruin that life and end up eating your kids................................. Another thing you can create a rich, successful, and happy family....................... But like I said you will always end up eating your kids, okay maybe that's just me, but still in this game I found some of the most fun I ever had. Mostly bloody, gory, depraved, child-eating fun but still fun nonetheless. If I were to give this game a rating I would have to stop eating my kids for a minute so I won't. Enjoy and by enjoy I mean enjoy eating your kids because we all do it sometime or another.
