One of the most addictive games of all time, The Sims series has been entertaining us with petty arguments, family disasters and heinous death traps since 2000. Thanks to the franchise’s totally open sandbox style of play, we’ve come across some hilarious circumstances in our time that we’re sure most of you will be familiar with.

More than just a game, The Sims is a way of life, and we’ve lost countless hours to its fiendishly addictive blend of designing houses and managing sims. From bizarre phone calls to joyous job promotions, there have been countless memorable moments produced in The Sims 14 years.

In anticipation of The Sims 4, which is set to release late this year, we’ve put together a list of 20 problems that only Sims players can possibly understand. Blursh! Meshaloob! Blursh!
