Hi! Late 30s, married female with two Jack Russell "children."
Lived most of my life in Houston, Tx, but husband's job moved us to the Baltimore, MD area last January. They're moving us to Seattle, WA in May.

Played Sims a bit on Nintendo DS, but lost interest rather quickly.
Been playing SFP since last Oct., but have been getting bored with it recently. Not too thrilled with what's in store for this death update, but will try it out.

Just finished playing Beyond on PS3. I have way too much time on my hands until we move.

Single female, late 30's...and a self-employed artist who wastes way too much time my iPad when I should be working on commissions.

Same here. I was at the store with the hubs and the S3 Supernatural expansion caught my eye. He was ready to buy that and S3 for me.

I told him that I wanted to wait before I gave EA that much money. He laughed because he's a gamer and aware of EA's rep.

I did cave on buying the pool cleaner because I've wanted it for so long.
Although, now I'm expecting Pool Cleaner to be a life goal. Ugh.

I'm a Canadian woman in my mid-forties (Vancouver). Been playing simulation games since Sim City Enhanced was relatively new and on which was a demo of an exciting new game that was coming out ... "The Sims"!

I got it and the expansion pack Livin' Large shortly after they came out. Played just that for a few years then discovered custom content online and I was in it for the long haul. Only upgraded to Complete Collection in I think 2009? I'm definitely a die hard Sims 1 player/fan.

I actually almost gave up on SFP when it first loaded and I saw the 3D-ish camera movements (that's mainly what kept me from getting into Sims 2 and onward because it makes me dizzy/headachy). I think I'm only handling SFP on my tablet because the screen is small 10 inches and so I don't get disoriented from it as much as I have even just watching Let's Plays of Sims 2+ on youtube on my only 17 inches wide monitor. :/

Besides by the time Sims 2 came out I had way too much custom content on my Sims 1 that I knew would take years to be converted for Sims 2 and the computer specs for Sims 2 was also far beyond my means, lol. Me and Sims 1 were just meant to be pals for life. ^_^

I think part of why I'm enjoying SFP as much as I have been, is because it has elements from the Sims sequels that appealed to me that made me wish I could play those, too, but SFP is like just fun bits and pieces of them. Nothing can replace Sims 1 for me but SFP comes close to giving me similar feelings of being the big sim boss. :D

I'm a 42 year old American female. I've always loved the Sims and always wanted to play but it always seemed that I had a computer that couldn't handle it. I was thrilled to find SFP. Before I was almost exclusively playing SFP, I played Nemo's Reef and Animal Voyage with almost as much passion. Then I spent real money to achieve a special item that I didn't get even after spending real money and I gave them both up (first it happened with Animal Voyage, then with Nemo's Reef). I also dabbled with Casino, Paradise Cove, myVegas, Jelly Splash (very addictive, but then you get to a point where you can't progress without spending money, so bye-bye), BingoBlitz, Where's My Water?, Words With Friends, QuizUp, DrawFree, and Hidden (Disney). I guess if there were endless hours in the day and I didn't work or need to do anything, I'd still be playing all of them, but choices had to be made.

Now, if I have to wait for the Sims to do something, I'll play Numberama 2 or Frozen Free Fall, but that's about it. I also like to create art and write stories, but unlike those two pursuits, Sims doesn't make my SO furious when I play it. He even asks me how they're doing.

I have two games going. My main one is Glee based, but it's mostly on hold while some of the characters I was willing to sacrifice orb-grind for those I want to make immortal. Since that's a slow, boring process, I've created another game with random yaboes that I don't really care about. I'm using the knowledge from the Glee game to hopefully do better the second time around: creating pre-made houses before they become prohibitively expensive and trying to get through the quests with no cost to me and still get the bonus items. So far, I've only missed out on the island statue. I checked my Glee game and I never did anything with it, so I figured it was no big loss.

I'm a 21 year old American female. I really only started playing because I kept seeing the girls at my dorm playin it, and I had always been intrigued by the Sims, but I was busy playing MMORPG's which took up a lot more of my time. When my laptop crashed, I decided to give it a try and that was over two years ago, so I'm still playing.

I did lose all my original characters, because my little brother accidentally deleted the game off my iPad, and I hadn't saved it to the cloud, but a year ago I started playing again. I still like MMORPG's, but they're really time consuming, and I love my sims, so I'll be playing SFP until I can't.
