Before I buy
I have played the original and The Sims 2 a long time ago and enjoyed it. I am thinking about comming back to The Sims and buy 3 but there are a couple of things I need to know first:
Right now the game and most of the DLC is on sale except for Showtime ...
If you are going to own a Sims game it should be Sims 3. Not every DLC is necessary. Only essential DLC I would say is Seasons for the weather, ensuring that something happens every week, adding flavour for what would be a bland city experiencing the same conditions everyday.
I've been able to play this game for so long because of my love for Sims. I've bought DLC here and there over the years when they are on sale and I play it completely before my next purchase. When I start a family I play for generations and imagine the family's story as it changes through time.
As a stand alone game Sims 3 is good. But if I were to play it without any DLCs now I might get a little bored with the lack of hairstyles, clothes, hobbies, locations, traits.

Player:Hey EA I wanna buy a game!
Player:The Sims 3
EA:$20 To buy enjoy!
Player:No i want the full game including dlc!
EA:That will be $380 Please.
Basically that's EA in a nutshell.
Alrighty back to the review
The sims 3 is basically a great game to play but it contains a bunch of bugs that are not fixed and it crashes all the time.
But the DLC prices man,It makes you wanna kill yourself. $20 dollars for a dlc? It is honestly stupid for that price for just one dlc. EA basically is a money grabbing company. Only buy dlcs on a steam sale.
Nothing fancy here. Just a look at how to master the Gardening career path and earn a few Simoleons in the process. I'm assuming that you have Ambitions installed. Otherwise Gardening will be little more than a hobby or sideline to your main career.

I love sims despite its glitches and the unfortunate EA creators. I was going to write this to Steam directly but can't seem to find a way to send it to them so instead I'm leaving it in the comments with the hopes that someone on the Steam team will see it: You and EA need to get over your ridiculous rivalry! It is absolutely ridiculous to force customers to rebuy everything they already own. This means people are wasting 20-30 dollars for one dlc because of this stupid rivalry you guys have. At the least, you should put a disclaimer on these games that you will not register games not bought through steam which is really ♥♥♥♥♥♥ of you by the way and save your customer base some money. Also if you could make a way that's simple for people who own games on disc to register them with you guys that would make people very happy. I've been playing sims long before you guys offered it. I have 12 DLC's bought on disc and not from steam that I now cannot use, thanks a lot! That's $220 worth of games that I can't use if I want to play the $60 worth of DLC that I bought from you guys! I wouldn't have bothered buying Sims from you if you had the decency to put a disclaimer up saying that it will not run with preowned DLC not bought through Steam.
TO ALL OF YOU SIM LOVERS OUT THERE; If you own Sims DLC outisde of Steam please save yourself some money and don't buy it from Steam.
