The Sims Cheats & Cheat Codes for Windows, Mac, Xbox, and More

The Sims is a social simulation game developed by Maxis and released in 2000. The game was a follow-up from SimCity, which had multiple titles in the series before The Sims. The game was a commercial and critical success after its release, with reviews praising its open-ended gameplay and simple mechanics. It won multiple awards, including GameSpot’s “Game of the Year,” and is seen as one of the greatest video games of all time. Highly influential for its time, The Sims sold more than 3 million copies in the first two years and went on to become the top-selling PC in history in 2003. Due to its success, the franchise has received multiple sequels along with countless expansion packs.        

The Sims Premise

The Sims is all about managing and experiencing the lives of your Sims. Players first begin by creating and customizing their own Sim. From there, they begin their life, creating and decorating their small house. Over time Sims will start to meet new people, get a job, and relax with hobbies. Every command is at the will of the player, and while Sims can have their own free will, players can void those actions. The actions the player chooses directly affect how the Sim behaves and functions. Time spend exercising and reading will have benefits while laying around and snacking will make your Sim lazy and dirty.

There is no ending in The Sims. Players “win” by making their own fun and setting goals for themselves. It should also be noted that The Sims can be more challenging than other installments in the series. There’s a higher chance that random chaotic events like a kitchen fire will occur. These events can change the outcome of a typical day and leave the player out of money to fix them. While the game can be seen as more primitive or less advanced than newer titles, it has its own realism that other games can’t match. Plus, it serves as a foundation that all titles have built upon, only getting better and more in-depth as time goes on.

The Sims Main Characters

The Sims created families and characters that would become staples in the franchise. However, it’s important to note that the main character is always the player and their Sims. They can create more characters or meet NPCs and have them move into the same house together. Some NPCs you meet in-game are recurring characters but are optional to interact with. Their lore can spice up the drama but is also optional for the player to pay attention to.

  • Goth family (Mortimer, Bella, and Cassandra): The Goth family is one of the most well-known families in the game and series. They are an affluent old-money family who have appeared in every game. Some players see them as the mascots and faces of the franchise.  
  • Pleasant family (Jeff, Diane, Daniel, and Jennifer): The Pleasant’s are a traditional middle-class suburban family who appears throughout the series. 
  • Michael Bachelor: Michael is the bachelor players can use to get away from the complex relationships of roommates. Michael lives a simple life that becomes increasingly more complex as family and relationships start coming into the picture. 
  • Hatfield family (Billy, Elizabeth, Hank, Ruby Ann, and Ulysses): The Hatfields are a stereotypical redneck family. They have the lowest starting funds and are extremely poor, with trash scattered around and an outhouse for a bathroom.  
  • Newbie family (Bob and Betty): The Newbie family is the tutorial family, meaning that most players have played with Bob and Betty. While they make rare appearances in other titles, they are probably the most well-known characters in the game because they are the first faces the player sees.
