The Sims 3 Is Your Why-Are-My-People-Crying Deal of the Day

Although The Sims 3 came out in 2009, folks are still buying it today. It's partly because new graphics and downloadable content continues to come out for the popular people-growing game. Some of the new DLC is awesome — outfits from the 70s and 80s, or seasons, or vampires — and it certainly adds a little flavor to dicking around with imaginary people in your simulated universe.

Steam's selling the base game for $7.50 (along with a bunch of discounted DLC) and Amazon has price matched (as it is wont to do.) The main difference is that Steam's version activates on Steam (duh) and Amazon's uses Origin DRM. Amazon's version works on Mac (note: the Mac version is still $20) but the Steam version doesn't. If you haven't tried this game out, don't miss this opportunity. It's the kind of game that should be on every computer. [Steam | Amazon]
