Hello. I am totally new to playonlinux, and have not been using linux very long either. I was just wondering if it is possible to run the Sims 3 well on linux, and if so, if anybody could help me install it. I am a complete beginner at this though, but I'd like to know if its possible before i buy the game.
Thanks :)

The Sims 3 is in our script repository, so you should be able to install it by launching PlayOnLinux, clicking Install (the + icon), selecting it in the Games directory and following the instructions from there. Unless there is some problem with your computer's configuration, that should work fine :)

There have been some issues in the past, however, and sometimes we can't find a solution, so what I'd do is check with your retailer if you can get a refund in case the game doesn't work, since you never know.
