    I found out about The Sims when I visited my friend's house as well. They had The Sims 2 for PS2 and the game was absolutely..mesmerizing! I had to have it so several months later I got my first PC Sims game, The Sims Life Stories! Ever since then my collection grew more and more, and today I'm more than proud to call myself a Simmer :)

    My sister borrowed the sims 1 from one of her friends and I saw her playing and wanted to play it I think this was around maybe a year or 2 after the sims one came out. I remember she was playing with the Goths and Cassandra Goth was the first sim I ever saw.

    Totally awkward, but I first played The Sims at a friends house too. It was my best friend in fourth grade, and it was The Sims for the Playstation 2. After watching him play I instantly knew I needed it, so I bought it for my Gamecube. Then I discovered the PC version and how much more there was to it compared to the console versions, so I went out and buy all of them with my lawn mowing money.

    I started playing The Sims when I was 6 years old, it was the sims 1. I was at my cousins house and she showed me it, she was playing and I was so interested in it. When I went home all I wanted to do was play The Sims, then my addiction began haha!:D

    I started playing the sims when I saw a OLD OLD OLD music video on youtube of the sims. Throwback when the description box was on the side of youtube videos I saw that this person made that whole video with the sims 2 so out of curiosity I bought the game, And the rest is history!!! :D

    I have a few vague memories of me and my friends playing The Sims 2. We would all gather around my family's old computer and take turns. It's so long ago that I can't really remember who introduced me to the game, but I'm guessing it was one of my older siblings. I was 6 years old when The Sims 2 released, haha

    I started playing with the Sims 1 at 4 or 5 years old. This was 2001. My sister had bought the game and of course she introduced me to it. I've been playing ever since I can remember. I've even found old pictures of me in random photo albums where I'm playing the Sims on this massive computer as a kid. It's great. So much nostalgia :')

    I started with Sims Busting Out and then upgraded to Sims 2. The boot up for Sims Busting Out that whispered "challenge everything!" still sends a thrill through me!

    I was in the electronics section of a store and I saw a huge section for a new game that had been released. I looked at the cover and saw that it was called The Sims. The box was huge and I thought it looked super cool. I bought it immediately (aka asked my dad to buy it for me), and went to my neighbors house so we could play it together. If I recall correctly, I played the Roomies family and accidentally killed them in a fire. I was hooked ever since.
