  • Most of the games that Sims can play contain elements from The Sims series. For instance, "R.E.F.U.G.E." borrows gameplay elements from The Sims Medieval with RPG elements like a health/mana bar. "MySims Go!" is based on MySims, and "Sims Forever" is The Sims with a few expansion packs installed.
