How you play The Sims is easy, it is tearing yourself away from the game that is hard. If you are a beginner, it is easier to start off in an established neighborhood with one person in the house. Since you will only have one person in the house, it will be easy to take care of that Sims needs. Any needs that are in the red, such as bladder or hunger, should be taken care of immediately. A happy Sim is more likely to want to increase their skills, thus, earning a higher position.
