List of Sim video games
This is a complete list of Sim games, their expansion packs, and compilations. Most games were developed by Maxis and published either by Maxis (pre-1997 acquisition by Electronic Arts) or by Electronic Arts (post-1997). EA has also marketed and recruited companies to develop several games such as Bullfrog Productions, Firaxis Games, and Tilted Mill Entertainment under the Sim brand.

- SimMars - Same as above, however a reference and some sound effects were recycled into an arcade game in The Sims Vacation. The game was remade by fans as a complete total conversion mod for SimCity 4, and is in beta 3 phase.
- MySims Social - (Via Unseen64) A game intended to launch on Facebook with Sims and SimCity Social, it never was completed.
- The Urbz 2 - A game intended to surpass The Urbz: Sims In The City, and turn it into a spinoff sub series to The Sims, but the project went through Development Hell after the original game failed to sell to expectations. It was in development first at Maxis for the PlayStation 2, Nintendo Gamecube and Xbox, before being sent over to Electronic Arts Chicago in 2006, where it had some design changes such as being moved to next generation platforms PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and Nintendo Wii, but the project was cancelled when the studio closed on November 6, 2007, leaving the project incomplete and never released. Assets, logos and other content could be found on The Sims 2 for PlayStation 2's DVD with model viewers, as the game used the same source code and engine as The Urbz 2.
