I checked the other posts about this, and reinstalled it several times, but it just didn't work. Whenever I open up any of The Sims Stories series (that's why I included all of them, none of them are working for me) they load up to the menu, but when it gets to the menu, the only option is "Learn to Play". If I click on that, it loads just a little bit, and then gives me the message about the application crashing. I've tried changing compatibility and I run it as admin, but it still doesn't work, along with some of the other fixes I've tried (sorry for the vagueness, it's late and I've been trying to get the game running for a few hours so I just kinda zoned out at one point). Here's a picture of what Castaway looks like on the menu, for reference, but all of the games I mentioned look like this.
