The Sims Stories is a series of three computer games in The Sims series. All three were designed and optimized for low-spec personal computers and laptops, serving as counterparts for the three main The Sims 2 console releases (The Sims 2, The Sims 2: Pets and The Sims 2: Castaway). Like the console releases, the three Stories titles all feature Story Mode, as well as traditional Freeplay. The first two titles, Life Stories and Pet Stories, require story mode to be played using pre-made characters, while Castaway Stories the player to create their own character.
- The Sims Life Stories (2007)
The Sims: Life Stories is based on The Sims 2, and features two separate Story Modes and a Freeplay mode. In Story Mode, you play as either Vince, who is trying to find love, or Riley, who is forced to move with her aunt after being evicted from her SimCity apartment.
- The Sims Pet Stories (2007)
The Sims: Pet Stories is based on The Sims 2: Pets and also features two separate Story Modes as well as a FreePlay mode. In Story Mode, you play as Alice, who is fighting to save her home from being torn down, or Stephen, who is looking after his cousins cat.
- The Sims Castaway Stories (2008)
The Sims: Castaway Stories is the final title in the Stories Series and is based on The Sims 2: Castaway. Unlike the previous two titles, there is only one single Story Mode, in which you can either play as the two pre-made characters or design your own character. You are on a singles cruise when the ship mysteriously explodes and sinks, killing almost everyone on board and washing you up on the shore of a mysterious, uncharted island.
