Hi! Welcome to Pleasant Sims!
My name is Cindy, and I tell stories. Games are my medium.
I’ve always loved gaming. I was given my first personal computer as a Christmas gift from my parents way back in 1997. I soon began playing every PC game I could get my hands on.
I started with the classics – Baldur’s Gate, Anno 1602 AD, Age of Empires – anything that would allow me to create or play a story. In the early 2000s, I moved on to games like RPG Maker and Roller Coaster Tycoon. I loved to build my own little worlds and make up my own adventures.
When I found The Sims series, I was hooked. There’s something so compelling about controlling the lives of these simulated pixel people. As I grew older, it was the ability to tell stories that kept me coming back to my favorite games.
Today, The Sims 2 remains one of my favorite games of all time, and I never tire of playing it. No other game compares in terms of creative control and storytelling ability. I also love immersive role-playing games that allow me to build characters and tell their stories in fantastic, magical worlds.
No matter what I’m playing, one thing remains the same. I will always be a story-teller at heart. I use games as a creative outlet, and I love sharing my creations with you!
Let’s Plays and Livestreams
I’m currently releasing Let’s Plays for Pleasantview in The Sims 2. I plan to add more neighborhoods in the future once these stories are complete. (I’m looking at you, Strangetown.) In fact, I want to play ALL the premade Maxis neighborhoods over the next few years.
In my livestreams, I play challenges, build and decorate, and play with townies from the premade neighborhoods. I really just love to chat with my subscribers about The Sims while we play around not-so-seriously in the game.
I publish new Sims 2 videos weekly on my Youtube Channel. You can catch my Livestream on Youtube every other Saturday at 5:00 PM MT and every other Sundays at 10:00 AM MT. See my schedule for more information.
Connect with me on Social Media! I love connecting with my audience and sharing Sims 2 content with other Simmers.

If you’re interested in me personally, here are some facts for you!
I’m married, child-free by choice, and in my early thirties. I’m originally from the Southern United states, but I moved to the Midwest about six years ago. I spend most of my time with my husband and two lovely dogs – Bella and Mortimer.
Yep, I named my dogs after The Goths. I’m dedicated.
I do have other hobbies besides The Sims. I love reading – mostly Fantasy novels. My favorite authors are Robin Hobb and Mark Lawrence. I try to read every day unless I’m sick or on vacation. I also love music. Going to live shows is one of my favorite things in the world. My favorite band is (currently) The Decemberists, but I enjoy a wide range of music from 80’s new wave to Appalachian folk to post-rock.
If I were a Sim, I would be a Pleasure Sim with a secondary Knowledge aspiration. My one true hobby would be Games.
If there’s anything else you want to know, just ask! For safety reasons, I don’t answer questions that would reveal too much personal information, but I’m glad to chat with you about games, hobbies, or other fun stuff! You can also check out my FAQs if you still have questions.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope to see you on Youtube (maybe even in a livestream) sometime! 🙂
