The Sims is offered as a retail game, not as shareware or freeware. Thus, if you download The Sims, you would be downloading a pirated or bootlegged version. Pirating and bootlegging is illegal in the USA and many other countries as well. You can, however, purchase the game online and they will ship the CDs to you right away.
