This is probably the most entertaining computer game I've ever played. It's all about picking out your family; from names of your spouse to where you want to go on vacation! There are many versions of The Sims, but in my opinion, the Complete Collection kept me on the computer the longest. This version includes the original version of The Sims, along with seven expansion packs. An expansion pack is a separate part of the game that is added on from the original Sims. In this particular collection the expansion packs included are: Unleashed (pets for your Sims), Vacation (vacations for your Sims), House Party (get-togethers for many other Sims), Livin' Large (new elements for your Sims game), Superstar (make your Sim famous!), Hot Date (find your Sim's other half), Makin' Magic (harness the supernatural with your Sim), plus more! I've really found this Collection to be worth it's money, because of all the elements and add-ons you can create with the game itself. It really is fun and exciting, the next time you're in an electronics store, check out some of the Sims games from Maxis.
