Love The Sims games been playing them for most of my life There is nothing wrong with these games Last time I checked they don't show any sex so I don't see what the big deal is.

Is It Any Good?

The Sims 3: 70s, 80s, & 90s Stuff does provide gamers with new clothing, hair and facial hair, furniture, and other household items to play with -- and it's a fun look back at the style and decor from these decades -- but there really isn't a lot to do with it. For example, it would've been cool if the '80s arcade games you put in your home were really playable, as mini-games. Or, how about adding new gameplay elements with this add-on, such as new missions, careers, or surprise guests from celebrities during these eras? It's not a bad buy for those who already own The Sims 3, but on the flipside, Electronic Arts could've done so much more with it.
