The Storyline

In the game, there is a residual plot, but it is nothing you should be concerned about. As in the previous game (The Sims 2), you can control one of the great families. At the outset, you are briefly introduced to family history, and then you can play. The game doesn’t force you to follow any predetermined path. It only determines the relationship between your characters and the other Sims. The most important mode of the game is the one in which you can create our own characters and entire families from scratch. In the wizard, you can configure the look and the personality of your avatar in any way you like and then create a dream home for him or her.

The Sims 3: the Game Mechanics and the Graphics
