When I was about 10 years old, I remember going to a friends house. While there I was introduced to The Sims Series. It was a fun game and I remember at that point, laughing about them taking showers. It was a good time and it helped me be a little creative. My friend gave me the code for all the simoleons and let me tell you, it made the game even more fun in my ten year old mind.

Even know, it’s a game I enjoy. Not only can I be creative with my character but I’m also able to be creative with the housing in the game. It’s an outlet to be crazy or buy things you wouldn’t in real life. Or if you’re me, fantasize about your dream house. Recently, The Sims™ 4 was released at Walmart and I decided it would be fun to surprise my husband with it. It was pretty easy to find in the electronics portion of the store.

The Sims™ 4 has so many options it’s insane. If you’re like me, then you’ll want a Sim that has similar traits to yourself. Or things you wish you had, like pink or turquoise hair. The customization in this game is what really puts it ahead in my opinion. That and it’s ease. With little guidance, I know my six year old could make a sim if he really wanted to.

There are many Age options for The Sims™ 4. #TheSims4 #Shop

There are a couple upgraded features. Building a home(my favorite part) is easier by far. I was able to build a two story home and decorate in less than an hour. There is a design tool in the build mode that makes it so much easier to correct things like tile, wallpaper and more by simply clicking and changing the color. Not only that but you can share the awesomeness that you create easily now with The Sims™ 4 new gallery feature in game.
