I am not one for playing games on the computer or game systems normally, but I am, without a doubt, addicted to the Sims.
As basic as it was, the original Sims 1 captured my interest. Sims 2 is without a doubt the most intricately detailed game I could have imagined.
While I played only the Original Sims, I did try out all the expansion packs (but only a few of the Stuff Packs) for the Sims 2 and I definitely have my favorites. There are pros and cons for all the expansion packs though, but the pros usually outweigh the cons for me.
My favorite Sims 2 Expansion Packs are without a doubt the Sims 2 Seasons and the newest one Sims 2 FreeTime. Sims 2 Nightlife brought nice changes too – especially finally having a drivable car.
Now, with the first of the Sims 3 information being released today, I am definitely excited and will go crazy waiting another 21 months for the game to be released (it’s not supposed to be released until December 2009 — that’s without any further delays).
What I like best about the Sims 3 is that now we are no longer going to be playing one household at a time, and are free to move about the neighborhood (without loading up yet another screen that takes forever sometimes) and time moves on everywhere. This is definitely a great change!
