Not gonna lie: When I played the Sims on my Gameboy Advance SP (the best one) along with the Urbz (Sims in the city), I was totally hooked on playing it everyday. I still jokingly make the "hungry noise" when I need mad eats.
Needless to say, I'm really nerdily excited about downloading the Sims 3 for Windows Phone 7 next week. It's already in the Marketplace, but EA just posted some more screenshots to look at till then because teasing is evidently fun. In addition, you can see a video of it in action after the break, posted by PocketNow.

I've been rather disappointed with the Sims 3 on Windows Phone, I admit I didn't go past the trial but the controls of the game (zooming in particular) are not well implemented and the the UI isn't the most intuitive I've used on a mobile system. For example it was very hard to figure out how to fulfil my Sim's desire to grow corn...
You're breaking my heart! Don't say that! Nooo...between that and Force Unleashed II, everything is disappointing!
