Reminds me of my childhood... playing with imaginary friends and everyone staring at me like I'm a raving mad loony when I'm talking to them. Ahh good memories!

This was my first sims expansion pack ever, and let me just say it was worth it. There's all sorts of stuff for new ages. I love taking babies and toddlers on walks, having children stomp around in costumes and blow up their siblings with potions (not killing them), having teenagers egg houses and be rebellious and go to prom, have adults throw insane bachelor/bachelorette parties, and have elders going crazy with canes. On top of it all, there's new clothing options and a new life state. And if it's all flying by too fast, get it on camera! This is perhaps one of the best expansions yet.

Much like the expansion I confuse this with, Ambitions, this expansion should have already been in the original expansion. It only adds things relating to age that can be slightly confusing at first because you really would think it should already be in the game: weddings, punishments, canes for old people. Stuff like that should be a given. But even if it's not, this is still a good expansion.

This DLC paired with the Sims 3: Seasons makes for an unforgettable experience. I really love Generations, it is a personal favorite of mine.

As other people have said in the reviews, this expansion pack is basically everything that should have been in the base game already. It makes the interactions between your sims so much richer, it's like adding the other half of their "personalities." So this is definitely a very necessary download, but pretty lame (and expensive!) that it wasn't there already.

This is a great expansion pack, definitely one of the best because it gives you so much to do and so much more clever little things added. However I do think all of the Sims DLCs are pretty pricey so I suggest buying most of them whilst on sale. When it does hit sale definitely get this one though.

The expansion that made old people and kids interesting.
Adds probably the 4rd most, next to Seasons, Ambitions, and Late Night. It makes every life stage interesting, which was well needed.
I understand that you'd pretty much need to adapt a full-life playstyle to enjoy everything this pack has, but it has something for everyone.

This is a fine dlc.

But not - absolutely not worth 35 Euros.

It's almost the same as the base game!!!

What is wrong with EA and their dlc-dementia?!?
