I have been playing The Sims™ since the first one came out! My husband and I are gamers and Sims has been our favorite PC game ever. When my husband and I were in college together we would play The Sims™ Series between classes and after homework. We would laugh how we were playing a game that was the life we were going to college for, a career, kids, a home and  pets. My husband and I even speak "Sim" to each other and we so get what the other is saying, its hilarious.

Fast forward 10 plus years and we now have the kid, the responsibility of a house and jobs. Between raising kids and working we still try to take time to play games. After all playing keeps adults young at heart! When we heard that the Latest PC Game The Sims™ 4 was coming out we knew we had to get it. #Sims4 #CollectiveBias

This version of The Sims™ has the characters with bigger personalities by being able to customize personality traits, skills and ambition that all change how your character interacts in the game. The home creating tools are easier and faster with for the first time being able to hand sculpt each room to make it your very own. Plus you can more easily share your Sims creations with friends online.

I spent a few hours playing The Sims™ 4 Create a Character Demo and had a blast. I love how you can now change small details in a face that make a big difference to looking exactly like a real person. In the demo you can only create  young adults but its a great way to get a feel for the flow of the game and I was impressed. I was making a Sim that I thought looked like me to have my husband ask who I was making. That made me laugh because I realized I was indeed making the "cooler" me and ask for his tweeks to my character using the tools. Between the two of us making it I think its a close match. I am looking forward to making his character and building a house once the full version of the game is out on September 2nd.

Like many great games that come out its best to get a pre-order in. I have had to wait on games I thought would be available after not pre-ordering so I knew this game I would definitely need to. Walmart is making it simple and beneficial to pre-order the game online. Easy peasy you don't even need to go to the store! When you pre-order the game online you will get a packet of Sour Patch Kids gum and other limited time offers with the game like a keychain, VUDU movie credits and more. But hurry with your pre-order to get the extra perks.

My husband and I are looking forward to the game day launch of September 2nd to spend hours playing. I even made sure I had the day off from work! It is going to be a Sim-erific day with our Sour Patch Kids Gum and the latest version of our favorite PC game Sims 4.
