The Sims 1 hype died down in 2006ish when Sims 2 came out in '04.
The Sims 2 hype died down just twoish years ago when the website got shut down and when the Sims 3 came out...
...but when will the Sims 3 hype die?
My guess is if Sims 4 turns out to be a success, it would be sometime in 2017..
But what if Sims 4 turns out to be bad?
Some say the Sims 3 fanbase may go on....even when the forums threaten to close down on the aforementioned date.
What do you guys think?
