We were quite fond of The Sims 3 back in the day. Ex-EG contributors Alec Meer and Keza MacDonald awarded both the PC and Xbox 360 versions of it an 8/10 in their respective reviews. "It's an essential play for anyone with an interest in what videogames can achieve outside of a targeting reticule," wrote Meer back in his Sims 3 review.
