I haven't played The Sims yet. Somebody said they thought it was kind of like Farmville where you build things. I was thinking it was more comprehensive than that.
There really is no conclusion to the game. Even if your Sim dies then you have their offspring to care for. It keeps going. That's kind of why I like it though. There is no end of the game, you can play with the same characters and settings for as long as you want. If you get bored, build another house with a new family.
Exactly! And there's expansion packs, too, where you can live in a medieval town or go exploring around the world, and so on. It's maybe not the most exciting game ever, but it's a lot of fun.
I was reading about Sims Medieval and it's different from the other Sims in that there is a conclusion. You can win the game if you achieve an ambition such as Imperial Domination. The other Sims games are open-ended, right?
I think so, yes. There are achievements you can get, and I assume once you get them all the game is technically "done," but you can still keep playing.
