Losing His Home In Firestorm Inspired Will Wright To Create The Sims

Will Wright was inspired to create The Sims after he lost his home in the Oakland-Berkeley Firestorm:

The process of assessing his losses and material needs after his home burned down set Wright to thinking about the value of possessions and the promise they hold of fulfillment. Having always been passionate about architecture, he began to develop an idea for a game where players would simulate daily activities in a suburban household, including building a home from scratch: The Sims was born.
