The Sims was the best upgrade to childhood ever, encouraging you to spend hours creating your dream family in a lavish gothic mansion or space age pad, and then burn them all to death (okay that bit was optional). Having always been forward thinking, The Sims quickly introduced gay and lesbian couples and their kids, long before same sex marriage was protected by law. It was also modern in its wide choice of hairstyles and bathroom fixtures.

According to the game's developers Maxis, "For more than 16 years, The Sims franchise has empowered players to express themselves through open gameplay and endless customisation." What this mean is that you can now create Sims with any type of tone of voice, physique, and style of walk - regardless of their gender. One small step for man, one giant leap for simulated mankind.
