My name is Andrew Sims, and I used to be a The Sims addict. No, I didn’t invent the game. People who incorrectly think they’re being funny like to ask me that.

But quite often – multiple times a week, in fact – people on Twitter think I’m the game.

Over the years I’ve fielded lots of questions related to the popular people simulation game. I hear about pregnancies, install issues, frustrations with Sim relationships, and much more.

I love retweeting these to my followers, but the problem is that as soon as I do it, the gamer realizes the mistake they made and then deletes their tweet.

This post will serve as a log of these tweets which I will screen cap and add here from now on.

The types of tweets I receive are…
