Question about 9 yr old playing SIMS

I have never played or attempted to play SIMS. SD(9) wants a SIMS game for her PS2 for xmas. I am not so sure about it. Her mom lets her play it at her house, but this game will stay at mine. So is it age appropriate? Why or why not?

  • my 10 yo son has played sims for about 2 yrs. He's just not allowed to "make out," "woo-hoo" or "make a baby", although it doesn't show anything except the bed bouncing and fireworks.

    There are MySims games, but I think they're too childish for his age group, more for 5-7yrs.

    Check your library. Some libraries have in-house PS2 systems for kids to use while at the library, but you can check the games out for 1-2 weeks. Then you could take it for a test run before you decide to purchase.

    But if her mom lets her play, it's probably fine. I would talk to her mother and ask if there's any restrictions on her playing sims.

  • i found sims to be pretty ok... other than being highly addictive!! lol!! the only questionable part i found on sims 2 was the make a baby part. but they dont show more than the ppl jumping in bed, and the covers moving around... it depends on the maturity level of the child i suppose...

  • I haven't played it in a long long 7 years.

    I think it's probably okay. I can't remember anything in it that would be harmful.

  • I love sims! I played when I was her age. Of course, the early sims were alot different. I agree with Caelumsmama about the making a baby part though.
