The base game is free to download until the 28th of May if anyone's interested. For me this came at a really convenient time as I was just thinking the other day how much fun I had with the original Sims and I fancied playing a game like that again and boom! here we are. Just FYI, there's a weird bug atm where Origin only lets you buy it as a gift for some reason, refresh the page or restart the app and that should fix it. I know the base game has been gutted and then sacrificed at the altar of overpriced DLC but sod it, free is free so I ain't complaining.
