I played not sure if it was Sims 1 or 2, but I had castaways and pets, I also mastered Busting Out. LOL I agree the code for fire was ridiculous. I didn't play TS3 on console but my daughter, Emily had bought it and played it. She ended up selling it back to GameStop because she said it sucked. She liked the PC version way better although she prefers to play The Sims 2 on PC. I won't be getting the console version as hubby only has XBox 360 and refuses to upgrade.
Which I wouldn't be able to get near it anyway if he did have one. He says that I have my PC for gaming (even though he won't go near my PC as he is not computer literate and just hates them), so he gets his console for gaming. Every now and then if he's gone for a few hours I'll jump onto his XBox and play a game under a guest profile and then delete it after I'm done.
Emily does have a PS4 so I'm sure I know what I'll be getting her for Christmas.
