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!
Building your first house was mindblowing!
Nothing was better than taking yourself and the sim you made of your crush on the hottest of dates.
Not to mention finally getting around to making your house as spiffy as possible.
And using mods to just make everything even more gorgeous.
Though let's get real, the part we all looked forward to was seeing what kind of crazy situations we could put our sims in.
Like lighting everything on fire.
The memories just get crazier from here...
I mean, who wouldn't want a toilet in their living room, right?
Or a pool that wraps around your entire house?
Awwww yeah, gettin' that sweet, sweet love bed.
Or some creepy-ass trophies.
What was with this weird set of hangers?
Or getting this super ominous message...
Then you could become a Hollywood superstar!
When Death himself came for you...
But of course, the best part was making everything FABULOUS!
It can't be easy to try and create a video game platform, especially one that people will continue coming back to for years. While we know people have gone completely bonkers over the Nintendo and Super Nintendo rereleases, apparently other old gaming systems have been keen to follow up. After a few years of watching their competition dominate the market, Sony has now decided to step into the ring and bring back their very first PlayStation console. PlayStation was first released in 1994, making it 23 years old this year. Thanks to games like Driver, Spyro the Dragon, and Twisted
Duck Hunt is one of those games that managed to become an all-time favorite even though the premise was so simple. All you needed to do was shoot the ducks using that big ol' controller, but it was still super tricky. We all played it a lot though, whether it was because the game was actually fun or if it was because it was our only option, we can't ever be sure. The game may have come out in America in 1987, and was so popular it was actually added to more modern systems as a downloadable game. But there's
The words "Bueller...Bueller...Bueller?" can only be read in one way, and with that simple, monotone delivery, a star was born. Ben Stein played the economics professor in the iconic John Hughes classic Ferris Bueller's Day Off, and that role managed to launch his career in a way that you may not expect for someone with such a small part. Sure, he's on screen for less than five minutes, but it's the delivery you remember. Yes, obviously the other characters are more present, and you can remember some of the more iconic moments as well, but it's Stein's line
When it comes to Disney, we know that they are obviously a gigantic corporation that needs to make money to survive. But this fact is easy to forget when they make some of the best movies out there that make us all feel a million emotions no matter how old we are. They can flip their emotional impact from making us "feel the love" between two lions, to the complete terror when a bunch of toys are heading into an incinerator. Some movies can't do that with real actors, but Disney can do it with cartoons. That's always been what
