The Sims software game was the first game that I had ever played on the computer. So needless to say I had alot of learning to do. With The Sims software there is a tutorial that is very simple to follow. It shows you what each of the icons means. The tutorial shows how to get the characters to interact with each other as well as how to interact with other objects. Once you finish the tutorial you can start the live version. It may take you several games before you might get the hang of everything. While playing the came you get to buy and sale household items. You get to tell the characters when to eat, shower, sleep etc. Sometimes the characters may do whatever they want to. If you have made them angry or upset they will not listen to you. I have had to quit many games because I get so upset because the characters will not listen to me.
Overall, this game can be very addicting.
