Course you're not too old.

If you feel silly say it is your sister's/cousin's/friend's birthday soon and the sims is their present

Eh, too old is so subjective. There are forty year olds that play the Sims. As long as you feel it isn't interferring with your life and you can carry on in a productive manner then I see no problem in/with it.

I don't think you're too old at all! It's your life at the end of the day and if you want to play the Sims then why not play it? Go for it.

No way. I play it and I don't feel old especially since people older than me play it.

Nothing wrong with still playing the Sims.
Robin if it's something you enjoy then there's nothing wrong with it.

There is no such thing as "too old" for video games. Ever.

Seriously, I wouldn't worry about it. As long as you're having fun, that's all that matters. <3

I know lots of older people that play The Sims. I don't think you are too old for it.

I've been on a Sims 2 fansite type thing and there was players aged 13/14 to 40. You're never too old to play The Sims.

I wouldn't say it's mainly for girls (if that's what was kind of being implied, I am very slow today) because they are many, many guys out there who play Sims as well.

My brother-in-law was about 26 and playing Sims.
I wouldn't bother with Sims 2 though, I would wait for Sims 3 to come out.

I'm a guy, I used to play the sims, and I'm proud

I would consider doing it again if it didn't take up so much space on my laptop

I play The Sims about once every two weeks or so.


Searching my heart for its true sorrow,
This is the thing I find it to be:
That I am weary of words and people,
Sick of the city, wanting the sea;

Wanting the sticky, salty sweetness
Of the strong wind and shattered spray;
Wanting the loud sound and the soft sound
Of the big surf that breaks all day.

The website says it's rated Teen for crude humor, sexual themes and violence.
So, no your not too old, probably closer to the age the game was meant for.

Wo, lol, I seriously feel old. Sims 2? That's, that was really new when I was around 16/17 then they came up with multiple sim platforms. Don't play sims anymore, but I know that when my friends and I were still in high school that game rocked... or the sadistic nature of it rocked: padlocking people in a room to see what they do before dying (yep, we'd suck as Gods)

I'm moving this to Sports and Entertainment, since it's concerning video games. I don't think you're "too old" to play Sims. Not at all. Now if you were playing like... Barbie's Wedding, then that would be one thing...

To play sims? I always thought of that as an adult game.

There's no age maximum on games. If you feel embarassed buying it, either buy it online or say it's for a sister or cousin.
