There’s nothing quite like watching your favourite YouTubers control tiny versions of themselves…
Almost everyone has at least one funny (and possibly scarring) childhood memory of playing The Sims, and now YouTube is bringing back the fun! Sims playthroughs have grown in popularity amongst gaming creators and others alike. With so many possibilities, we know we’ll never get sick of these videos – and we’re sure you feel the same way! It seems that everyone has a little desire to play god and wreak havoc on the people they know…
So let’s take a look at the kookiest alternate universes our faves have created in Five of the Best: Sims Playthroughs.
YogSims – Meet Simon, Lewis, Hannah & Duncan! | YOGSCAST Hannah
We’re starting with an oldie, but a goodie. This is the video that started the EPIC Sims series from Hannah Rutherford: YogSims! Here we meet the main Yogscast members – Hannah, Lewis Brindley, Duncan Jones, and Simon Lane – as they move into their new house. This entire series features a lot of love and dedication from Hannah for her pixel-based pals, as she made the ENTIRE Yogscast team in one game! That’s around 15 people PLUS pets. We have trouble keeping one household alive…
We’d definitely recommend this video (and the whole series, really) if you feel like a throwback to the good old days of The Sims 3, with some truly unique characters. Hours of fun for everyone!
Nerd³ Plays… Sims 4: City Living – 연속극 | OfficialNerdCubed
Video game or soap opera? Worlds collide in Dan Hardcastle’s venture into The Sims 4: City Living. In this video, we follow the life of Dan’s randomly generated evil genius Dan Webster on his quest to ruin everyone’s lives, eat fruitcake, and have a swimming pool in his kitchen without violating health and safety regulations!
The City Living expansion pack adds loads of cool new features to the game, such as apartments, cultural festivals, and the new location of San Myshuno. Dan truly tests the limits of these new features in this video and the results are hilarious.
LET’S PLAY SIMS! | Rose Ellen Dix
Rose Dix and Rosie Spaughton take it old-school in this episode of Let’s Play Games with the Xbox edition of The Sims 2. If you want to see one of the most relatable Sims experiences on the internet, this is the video for you. Deleting doors, starting kitchen fires, and implying someone’s mother is a llama are all featured. We got major nostalgia and we’re sure you will too.
What makes this extra special is that both Rose and Rosie have hardly any past experience with The Sims, so their reactions are as authentic as can be.
KEEPING UP WITH THE BOSSES | The Sims 4 | jacksepticeye
We have yet another first-time Sims experience with Sean McLoughlin‘s Boss family in The Sims 4! This hilarious series follows the pantsless family in their wacky adventures, but the first episode is definitely a highlight. Who doesn’t love character creation, especially when the characters are modelled after real-life people…?
If you need to de-stress and have a laugh, then take a day off and marathon the series! Let Sean do all the screaming for you and learn how to be a Boss on The Sims.
Harper’s All Grown Up! | Zalfie Sims Edition  | PointlessBlogGames
And of course, we can’t talk about The Sims without mentioning Zalfie! Zoe Sugg and Alfie Deyes live the Sims life of our dreams in their series, and in the most recent episode, we got to watch their little girl Harper become a toddler! It’s seriously so cute.
The Deyes family live the life of luxury and it’s truly #goals.
So there you have it…
Five of the Best: Sims Playthroughs. We hope we’ve satisfied your gaming binge needs. The Sims is a timeless game and every series is completely unique, so we’re sure these will be around forever!
