The Sims is a video game series that almost exists on a separate plain to other major releases hitting the shelves soon. There isn't a great overlap between its fan base and that of Call of Duty and Assassin's Creed, and yet it remains one of the biggest game series out there.
Everyone has at one time or another played Maxis's world builder, either in its first, most basic iteration or one of its ever-expanding follow-ups released over the 14 years since.
Maybe you're the kind of player who recreates their own lives in the game, or builds toward wealth and success, maybe you're a player more interested in designing the perfect house. Whatever your end goal is however, the chances you've also indulged your sociopathic side.
