Since initially debuting in 2000, The Sims franchise has continued to grow over the years, and with numerous expansion packs and versions, the game is still going strong almost twenty years later. The key to this game being so successful is the constant reinvention process that it has undergone. Instead of maintaining the same gameplay year-after-year, there are so many changes that take place. The newest iteration of the franchise is The Sims 4, which was initially released in 2013. Since its debut, it has released numerous expansion packs that have allowed players to continue playing the game despite it being over five years old. Expansions like Cats & Dogs
and Get Famous have made the game exciting even for long-time players.
For those that have played The Sims multiple times know that no game is the same as different interactions and situations in the game make each new creation a different story.
