Note: I don't play games myself (only chess once in a while) so I'm too inexperienced, when it comes to gaming on Mint.

Can you play another other games than Sims?
What version of Mint are you using? 32-bi or 64-bit?
Are you playing on a laptop or desktop?
I use PlayOnLinux for almost all of my games, so I can help.
Apparently Sims 3 runs really well in Wine: Sims 3 WineHQs
That is a good start!

EA downloader is Origins. It basically downloads and installs Origins client. Then you have to install or download the game through Origins.
When its done, you can launch it through the client.
The problem is, I can get Origins to run in PlayOnLinux but can't get it to launch any games.
I have tried with Kingdoms of Amalur; Reckoning and Battlefield 3... Just couldn't get them to run at all.
Unfortunately the DRM is handled by Origins as well. So if Wine isn't compatible with whatever they are using for DRM, then your game isn't going to work.
