There are tons of simulation games but The Sims franchise is one that consistently wins with each new release. Kids and adults have enjoyed playing God with virtual the humans for decades and with its addictive gameplay and mischievous humor, it's no wonder why. You'd think that a game where you live a virtual life would get boring after a while but EA's release of numerous expansion packs themed on everything from celebrity cameos to hot tub parties continue to keep fans of this blockbuster franchise entertained.
