This is not a bug with Windows 8.  It is a compatibility issue.  You can try to run the game in compatibility mode, right click on the Sims executable file and select properties.  There select the compatibility tab and check the box for compatibility mode.  Select Windows 7 as the OS and click Apply.  See if that works.

If that doesnt work, then you will have to wait for EA to release a patch for The Sims to operate within Windows 8 properly.  It is on EA to do this not Microsoft.
