    When you uninstall it, a message should pop up and ask if you want to delete your save games anyway.

    If you don't want to risk it, find where the save games are, google should be able to tell you that with a simple search, then back them up and uninstall, then if it doesn't ask, no problem. I unistalled Sims 3 earlier, so I can't see why it would be different
