Known for their series of charmingly unusual simulation games, Maxis unleashed a mega-hit on the world when "The Sims" released in 2000. There is something inherently appealing about building a unique home and neighborhood of little gibbering Sim people, and then waiting to see how they interact with each other, and while the core concept remained intact from game to game, new additions like pets, mythical creatures, and expansive new areas to explore have kept fans engaged over the years. Since there are so many versions and optional expansion packs for the latest iteration of The Sims available, it’s worth taking a moment to learn if the newest batch of bonus content is worth the investment.
