Not sure about horses being enough alone...
I gave a brand new laptop to my 15 years old daughter last Christmas. (chosen by her little 12 years old brother who knows stuff) First thing she asked me was : Can you install me The Sims 2 pretty please?
And so we did.
No troubles at all and she has Win 10. We are such a lucky family...who knows stuff...lol

I've only been in existence for 2 less months than the first game. That gives me a mere 16 years of age, about to be 17 in a month. I've been playing The Sims for about half of my life, I got The Sims 2 for my 8th birthday.

It's so awesome that this game is enjoyed by youngins like me, and oldies in their 70s alike! Many of you here are older than even my parents are.

I'm 35, will be 36 in May. I'm not sure what category that would place me since there are many that are younger and many that are older. As for the previous comments in the thread, even though I am female I have been called "Sir". I think it may because of my short hair (I keep it short since it gets to 100-115 degrees in summer where I am), but apparently "short hair equals male" to some people. I am single and childless by choice (if I was a Sims 3 Sim I would have the Dislikes Children trait). I tend to keep my Sim families small. It was the Ambitions EP that hooked me into Sims 3, not the horses (I don't have the Sims 3 Pets EP.)

I'm ~30 and have been playing these games since the first one was released. (To be accurate: I played The Sims until 2005, and have been playing The Sims 2 ever since. Sometimes I play Sims 3, but always come back to TS2.

I lose so much time playing this game I gave it up for Lent. And here I am, teasing myself....

I'm 30, and lately there have been more reminders of memories that make me feel old.

Most recent is when I found out somebody made a horror game based on Furby-like creatures set in 1998. What I can recall from that year is 5th/6th grade, Pinky and the Brain, those sour Warheads, tamagotchis/gigapets, and of course the Furbies. I don't think that was the Christmas I got my N64 though (must've been in '99).

Pinky and the Brain
Pinky and the Brain
One is a genius; the other's insane

To prove their mousy worth
They'll overthrow the earth
Pinky, Pinky and the Brain ...

I too, am now 30 but damn if 1997 wasn't a great year to have a pop cultural awakening! I was all about the Spice Girls and you can bet I had a Giga pet (compu-kitty) it was technically the first simulation game I had.

Uh oh! My social bar is low - that's why I posted today.

The Spice Girls I definitely remember. I still have their '96 album in both cassette tape and CD, but I never got a chance to view their movie. They had their 20th anniversary last year which is amazing.

All my gigapets were dinosaurs (I even have the t-rex from The Lost World: Jurassic Park). The fourth electronic I got was a little more diverse because the baby dino can grow into one of three dinosaurs: pterodactyl, brontosaurus, or I want to say triceratops. There wasn't a way to tell what the baby was going to be until the changes became somewhat noticeable upon adolescence. Problem was the toy itself was faulty (it always malfunctioned), so at rare occasions I was able to see the baby mature fully. Usually it was a pterodactyl.

16 year old here. I've played The Sims about as long as I remember, starting with The Sims 1. Believe it or not, I only played The Sims 1 (Vanilla, no less) until I was about ten because I never really looked into the newer games. Then I started playing The Sims 3 for a few years and learned about CC. I actually always thought The Sims 2 looked stupid until I tired it, but now I can't stand 3 and only play 2 & 1 (I keep trying 4, but just can't seem to get into it.)

Actually she may not want to, there are rules on joining age here.

My son who is 10 plays this game. He's not part of the forum, though.

I know Jo..but I also know I would not do anything about it myself, and I am sure I am not alone.
