'The Sims' Just Turned 18, Here Are 15 Pictures To Take You Back To Your Favorite Game

- Page 1

One of the biggest spinoffs of the Sim City franchise, The Sims started a massive franchise that people are still playing today. While the new versions have all sorts of fancy stuff (that costs a buttload of money), we still have a soft spot for the original, which came out all the way back in the distant year of 2000. Here are some of our favorite moments from the game!

The Backstreet Boys Are Trying Out The Food Industry Because They Really Do Want It That Way

The Backstreet Boys have been a surprisingly consistent presence in our lives since the 90s. While a lot of the other boy bands faded out over the last couple of decades, The Backstreet Boys aren't afraid to keep going and bring us those pop jams we've loved for so long.
