How will you create the universe!

The freedom of The Sims 3 will inspire you with endless creative possibilities and amuse you with unexpected moments of surprise and mischief! Create millions of unique Sims and control their lives. Customize their appearances and personalities. Build their homes — design everything from exquisitely furnished dream homes to quaint cottages. Then, send your Sims out to explore their ever-changing neighborhood and to meet other Sims in the town center. With all-new quick challenges and rewarding game play, The Sims 3 gives you the freedom to choose whether (or not!) to fulfill your Sims’ destinies and make their wishes come true.

NEW! SEAMLESS, LIVING NEIGHBORHOOD

Explore the ever-changing neighborhood -- and take your Sims to meet friends in the park, discuss fine art at the gallery, visit neighbors' homes, converse with less-than-savory characters in the graveyard and more! Who knows what might happen? Admire the natural beauty of the beach, the mountains, and more.

NEW! CREATE A SIM

Create any Sim you can imagine with new easy-to-use design tools that allow for unlimited customization of facial features, hair color, eye color, and more. Fine tune your Sims' body shape from thin to full-figured to muscular.

NEW! PERSONALITY TRAITS

Select up to five individual personality traits such as brave, artistic, kleptomaniac, clumsy, paranoid, and romantic, to create an endless number of truly diverse Sims. Influence the behaviors of your Sims with the traits you've chosen. Will you create a neurotic romantic with a heart of gold, or a geeky super-genius with an evil streak?

NEW! UNLIMITED CUSTOMIZATION

Everyone can customize everything -- design and build your dream house and decorate it to fit your Sims' personalities. Customize everything from floors to décor, shirts to sofas, wall-paper to window shades.

NEW! GAMEPLAY THAT'S REWARDING AND QUICK

Enjoy the challenge of fulfilling your Sims short- and long-term goals and reap the rewards. Your Sims can pursue random opportunities to get fast cash, get ahead, get even, and more. Choose whether or not to fulfill your Sims' destinies by making their wishes come true. Your Sims can skyrocket from Latrine Cleaner to Astronaut, from Rabid Fan to Sports Legend, or even from Roadie to Rock Star!

  3. Sims 3 (still) offers addictive, immersive fun!
    by zeeee, USA - Oct 11th 2014

    I know the Sims 4 just came out, and therefore people might not be rushing to buy the previous version. That being said - this game is needlessly, horrendously, delightfully addicting. The changes made from the Sims 2 are all positive: endlessly customizable furniture and clothing; better development of wishes, moodlets, and opportunities; the addition of housing blueprints if (like me!) your houses never turn out *quite* the way you imagined them. With the Expansion Packs, possibilities really feel limitless. I can't quite get enough! I'm not close to being done with exploring and enjoying S3 (and I've had it for over a year), so S4 is just going to have to wait...
