    I found this sims-clone a bit boring and too kiddie friendly for my tastes. Family House is a good game if you have a five year old in your life but for grownups there is way better fare.

WHAT’S THE MEANING?

A life simulation game is a sub-genre of simulation games. Its defining characteristic is gameplay that involves controlling virtual lifeforms. The player gets to play “god” over a group of people, pets, or other creatures. Another term for life simulation games is “A-life games". A-life stands for artificial life. A-life games are close simulations of real-world events. They often feature concepts such as aging and death.

DID YOU KNOW?

The Sims, which released in 2000, was the first game of its kind. The game initially planned to be a building game and architecture simulator. Yet, the game’s developer Will Wright saw the potential for a life simulation game. This is when he added a virtual person to interact with the objects in the house. Thus, The Sims was born. The simulation for the characters in the game is two-pronged. They are biologically and socially "simulated". They grow, age, die and reproduce. They speak a language. They establish relationships between other Sims characters in the game. A Sims’ needs in the game are from the Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs. Like a real person, a Sims character act upon their needs. These include his physiological needs, needs for safety, for belonging, and for self-actualization. The Sims now has four installations and has sold over 200 million copies worldwide. The game lands on the eighth spot on the list of best-selling video game franchises of all time.
