The Sims Logo – The Sims is a game of social simulation and strategy created by game designer Will Wright, developed by Maxis and published by Electronic Arts in 2000. Since then the franchise has sold over 100 million copies (counting the first two generations), with the video game PC bestselling history.
Since 1981, Will Wright had obtained similar results with popular game SimCity with all its consequences. The success of your game is based on his creative philosophy to apply scientific theories to the design of simulators life, whether a city, a planet, an ant or, as in The Sims, a local community.
The Sims is the first game of this genre in which every living being has its own personality and is individually controlled directly. Curiously, before publication, the creators called the game “doll house” or “the toilet game”, since it was the only game that featured a fully functional toilet and used characters of different genders in different ways (raised or no cover). In 2002, Sims got the world record sales, surpassing the famous video game Myst.
