Castaway Stories is one of my favourite Sims expansions. The funnest thing is that it is set on a tropical island, with no escape. Really diverse from the usual Sims life-in-the-city gameplay. You can hunt animals, gather food, craft weapons, cook different kinds of food. And the cool thing is - there is no escape ship, nor any endgame. If you like Sims, you should definitely get Castaway Stories.
