I used to play The Sims years ago and I've been thinking about buying the game again for my PC. If I buy The Sims 3 Starter Pack, is that all I need to get set up? Or do I need The Sims 1 to be downloaded onto my laptop first?
Sims 3 is a full game in itself, so no need for older version.
Have fun playing :)
Sims 3 starter pack is all you need. Sims 1 and 2 are completely separate games. They aren't connected to each other.
