Over dit spel

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!

My sim was very sad when his friend Carl passed away, so I "resurrected" Carl as a ghost so we could still chill together like old times. But then the dude wouldn't leave. I mean, I know he needed a place to crash, and I was happy to let him sleep on my couch, but he was the worst ****ing houseguest ever. He ate all my food (I still haven't figured out how ghosts eat), left dirty dishes all over, broke my shower and hogged my computer.

And if that weren't enough, when I invited my girlfriend over for some quality woohoo time, Carl started flirting with her!! My sim went to bed alone, frustrated and ****ed off.

Thanks for nothing, Carl, you ****ing ****blocking dirtbag.

I absolutely love this game and I've wasted way too many hours playing it, but why does the DLC have to be SO expensive? Especially when considering that the next generation of the game has already been released. I understand offering additional content for a little extra, but The Sims 3 takes this way too far. Either make the expansions cheaper or offer more in each one, because they aren't worth $20 as they are now.

First off, this game is good. It's very good. You can do a lot of things in this game that can't really be done easily in real life, like electrocuting Taylor Swift or something. Do I recommend it?


The base game is good, obviously, but what pisses you and me off is Egoistic ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥s (EA)'s decision to release about more than 20 DLCs separately. Now this isn't exactly the worst thing, but the costs of each individual DLC is astronomical. $34.99 for an expansion pack, even if it is Into the Future (which is kind of cool), is just ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥. Whoever sets the costs have to be high, drunk, and mentally challenged at the same time. That is more than 3 times the price of Goat Simulator, for example. Also, most of the expansion packs cost $24.99, which is also "coincidentally" the same price for each Stuff pack. Yeah, they do bring a lot to the game, but wouldn't it be just nice for Maxis (or EA?) to put at least some of these features, such as Pets and Seasons, in the base game? Now I have to wait for the sales.

I would want to recommend the base game, but the problem is that the lack of features WILL make you want to buy the DLCs. It is really good marketing strategies, to be honest, but it is morally criminal.

I'm 21 years old and it's time to make a fresh start. I leave my home town in search of a new life following my dream of becoming a world class culinary artist. I have near enough no money to my name, but with the help of some sort of demi-God I'm suddenly drowning in cash. I buy a beautiful new home and join the local bistro to kick start my career. After just my first week I have plenty of acquaintances and decide to throw a party to deepen my relationships and make some life long friends. The party is going smoothly, and I even get close to a girl and give her the old one-two in my way too big for just me bed. She stays the night and the next day I propose. There's no going slow in this town. Bad news; turns out she's my boss, I gained a step daughter, and she's also pregnant. She soon hits the elderly stages and I end up having to sleep with what looks like a dried up ballsack. I'm still young and have a granny for a wife and a baby who definitely isn't short of being "special". Not to mention my step daughter hates me. Is my life cliché? I wouldn't let it end like this. I throw party after party, befriend a highschool girl, and once she hits the ripe age of 18 I snag my first kiss with her; all under the watchful eyes of my wife. Needless to say, we're divorced now, and for some reason the little ♥♥♥♥ who caused it is no longer interested. That's okay. Time goes by and I bed a tubby tess in my ex-wifes bed, before throwing rejection in her face. My new target is the maid. She has too much to drink and I take her to bed in, you guessed it, my ex-wifes bed. My ex-step daughter walks in on us so I teach her a few choice words on her way out. I decide to marry the maid and have another child with her. A week later I have a little black baby girl, and my first daughter is a teenager now. Although I sleep with my wife and ex-wife in the same room, things are going good. Or so I thought. My new maid wife turns elderly and I've only just hit 30. My life takes a weird turn next, as the ex-step daughter who once hated me is now coming onto me hard. I say ♥♥♥♥ it, and bed her. My maid wife catches me and we get divorced, so naturally I marry the step daughter while she's in her prime, and of course we need another baby. My first wife is now my mother-in-law, and my daughter is also my sister-in-law. Not that she cares. No matter how many wives I go through, my two daughters are still my best friends. Because they're the only two people in this world I can't ♥♥♥♥.

Holy moly, I never thought the sims could get better, but when i got the base game i was absolutely blown away. i didnt last more than a few days without wanting to get all of the other packs to date (and i did just that) . pricey compiled, but so worth it if you are a simmer. not going to get the sims 4 just yet, i want to finish playing the sims 3 completely, with more than 700 hours put into it, the packs i have, and those that i have yet to get, im sure i will probably spend well over another 2 years playing happily on sims 3, besides, there will be time for sims 4, its not a bad idea to wait out all the bugs n stuff... if you like things like design and fashion, this is like playing house, on steroids! LOL! (dont do drugs :3) ... but seriously, i absolutely recommend this game for simmers as well as anyone who likes taking the time, anyone who likes to "level things up" and putting in the effort in learning how to play a new game, its alot to learn, but once you do, you will be able to play any sims game. if you do decide to get it add me, thanks.

While the game mechanics are admitidly fun, the ridiculous in game store forcing you to spend real money already combined with the $470 asking price for the base game + dlcs makes you want to kill both yourself, and the director of EA.
