Today is the ten-year anniversary of The Sims franchise. That’s a decade of miniature births, miniature lives and, eventually, miniature deaths playing out upon our game screens. A decade of little computer men and women landing their first virtual jobs, buying their first virtual homes, meeting their first virtual friends and holding their first virtual marriages. A decade of glowing green plumbobs and red-alert bladder meters.
We’re GamesRadar, though… so naturally, when EA approached us about posting a celebratory feature, the first thing we asked about was the WooHoo. Over the past ten years, what are the silliest, craziest, kinkiest locations these programmable people have managed to get their simulated freak on?
These are the surprisingly diverse, and bizarre, answers.
Editor’s note: The following material was provided by EA, publisher of The Sims series.
The Heart Bed
Though the act was disguised as the choice “Play In” for the original Sims, the heart bed has since featured more provocatively in The Sims 2 Apartment Life and The Sims 3 High-End Loft Stuff.
The Hot Tub
A staple of The Sims 2, nothing is more classic than WooHoo’ing in a backyard boiler… where all the neighbors can see, of course.
The Sims 2 Nightlife introduced vehicles and all the new possibilities with them. Now where’s the drive-in? And what happened to that new car smell?
In The Sims 2 Bon Voyage, Sims could take a break and relax – or not – in a tropical hammock.
The Photo Booth
The Sims 2 Nightlife offered an interesting voyeuristic option to enjoy the photo booth. There’s no space too small for WooHoo.
In The Sims 2 Open for Business, the Sims moved into the industrial age with their own private elevators. Better build plenty of floors.
In The Sims 2 Bon Voyage and The Sims 3 World Adventures, tents were used for far more than sleeping.
The Celebrity Trailer
In The Sims Superstar, Sims could take a break from the “tough” life of fame to enjoy a groupie or two.
The highest flying WooHoo spot – your own personal helicopter. It’s what Bond would do.
Sims get freaky in a whole new way in The Sims 3 World Adventures. And check out that mummy! We can already see our unborn children in his undead eyes.
