17 Reasons The OG 'Sims' Is The Only 'Sims' You Need

Old is always better.

"Sims" is hands down one of the best computer games ever. The unprecedented ability to control everything your Sim does, from what they eat to where they work to whether or not they drown in the pool because you went into Build mode and deleted the ladder while they were swimming is nothing short of magical.

Now, though, "Sims" has gone a little cray with their upgrades, giving you almost too many options. With all the overwhelming choices you have to make in "Sims 4," sometimes we yearn for the simplicity of the OG "Sims." Here are all the reasons why old school "Sims" is the best "Sims."

  1. Creating a Sim was much simpler.
