Is the Sims impossible to play without cheats?

  • what? no, i've hardly played it, but when i did i never played with cheats, no point in playing, unless there's something to make it a challenge and cheat's destroy that notion and destroy imho the whole point of the game..

    No, it's not impossible to play The Sims series as originally intended by the creators by playing without cheats.  HOWEVER, doing so (by getting a job, paying bills & raising funds to buy new furniture, remodeling your house, ect.) becomes more of a grind that tends to mimic real life.  With the addition of aging mechanics (added in The Sims 2 onward), you'll have to procreate in order to keep the family tree going... should you choose to enable this (as it's optional).

    Using cheats allow players to fast forward past the boring grind & get into the more fun stuff with the game OR do more fantasy play by removing some of the game's restrictions.

    No, not impossible...

    But it is undeniably the sort of game where cheating does actually make it a tad more fun.
