Re: Games similar to The Sims
I'd love that as well, unfortunately EA/Maxis seems to have the monopoly in the human life simulator field. The only thing similar I can think of is an old game called "Singles: Flirt up your Life" which seems to have been a (very) limited version of the Sims focused solely on the relationship between two characters: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Singles:_F ... _Your_Life
And some people claim that Virtual Villagers is like Sims...it ain't...
So yeah...there are, unfortunately, not many games comparable to the Sims.
