Why you can trust GamesRadar+ Our expert reviewers spend hours testing and comparing products and services so you can choose the best for you. Find out more about how we test.

Ten years ago, if you would’ve told us that as games continue to innovate ways to defy the laws of physics, redefine societal boundaries and violently break the protocol of human decency, an unending simulation of household chores would materialize as the most successful PC game series of all time, we would’ve charitably filled your hand with loose change and been on our way.

But here we are. And we’re not immune to the to The Sims’ irony either. Many of us at the Radar have stepped over piles of soiled laundry and avoided friends’ phone calls to nestle up to our respected consoles to take out garbage, scrub dishes and speak bubbly gibberish to in-game neighbors for hours on end. Publisher EA knows this better than anyone, and The Sims 2 Pets has come to the Nintendo Wii.
