An unimaginable number of little computer people have now been created and probably sent to work against their will by cackling human overlords.
“At this milestone, we want to thank players of The Sims everywhere for making The Sims such a worldwide phenomenon,” said Rod Humble, Head of Studio for The Sims Label. “The Sims has been an interactive experience for people around the globe to explore their passion for creativity and we’re thrilled to be a part of that. From building houses and relationships, from the first kiss to a toddler’s first step, from kitchen fires – and even visits from ghosts, players have told more than 100 million unique and fun stories!”
What’s perhaps most remarkable about this is how few games have actually tried to imitate The Sims or cash in on the success of the series. I can really only think of a handful of other games, and few of those have the same kind of universality. Anyway, good work Sims designers, looks like you’ve proved you don’t need a gun lurking at the bottom of the screen after all…
