I just got The Sims 2, plus three expansion packs for free. How is this game? It looks really interesting judging by the back, but it seems a bit childish too. I know, a simple solution would be to pop it in and test it out, but I don't feel like it right now.

Anyone who's played it, what are your thoughts?

Also, the expansion packs are Open For Business, Pets, and Nightlife.

I love the sims. The Sims 3 is a better improvement.

Its not so much childish seeing as you can create complex drama, just because something doesn't have violence doesn't mean its for kids tongue.gif

For some reason I always make these young women who marry rich people, and then the rich people have sudden "tragic" accidents.

Oh and Nightlife is the best out of those three.

Then Open For Business

Then Pets.

Can I kill the Sims? If so, in clever ways? LOL, listen to me. Sounding like a kid who plays too much GTA. But really, I like games like that. Games that let you do wtf you want. Kinda like Fallout 3, you know? Take the good route, or take the evil route.

In University you can get a career award from the botanical science career and it is a venus fly trap with a giant cow head on it. What you do is you send other sims to it, it eats them alive and then you can get lifejuice from it to make your sim live longer.

Well first the sims age which means you actually have a point while playing it. In the latest one The Sims 3 its super fun because you can give them different traits like Evil and they can steal candy from infants, Kleptomaniac where they randomnly steal things (even if they are a cop) or Vegetarian (if they eat meat they physically get sick. I like to make vegetarian sims eat meat, mauhauha)

Theres also different goals and opportunities.

If you want to see some stuff you can do with sims 2 let me dig up my old archive.. One sec

Sims 2 stuff:

My old marylin monroe sim.




Scary stuff:




The key word here is MODS MODS MODS.

www.modthesims2.com or www.modthesims3.com is the best mod site.

There are also sites where you pay for the mods which is bullshit and don't do it or I lose all respect for you. I hate it when people try to sell things that technically do not exist.

Xfire Identity: i said your mother!!



it is good fun, i was actually playing the sims 2 last night laugh.gif... the expansions i own are open for business, university and seasons... i think open for business is the best one i own... i might go out and buy nightlife though because, i want cars but, OFB allows me to make my own home businesses and stuff... university adds another branch to your lifespan and unlocks a few more jobs as well like natural scientist (that plant tranque was talking about), paranormal (phone that calls death, makes zombies), show business (facial reconstruction machine), etc...

seasons is a nice addition as well... i like the fact that the weather changes!! snowmen FTW!! thunderstorms FTW!!

my sim went to college and earned a degree so, currently he's starting new jobs once he unlocks the career achievement item... since he has a degree, he skips about 4+ jobs and jumps to the one right before you unlock the achievement... i'm trying to unlock ALL career achievement items...

my wife is in show business so i downloaded a few celebrity sims to sprinkle in the neighborhood... angelina jolie and brad pitt were one... she became friends with jolie almost immediately while brad pitt kept playing pranks on me and hating everything i said for a while.... lol, he took a little longer and made for some hilarious lol moments... bruce willis and megan fox are the other ones that moved in...

yea, i still play this game... i want to play the sims 3 but, just like fallout 3, i need a better computer to run it...

Oh, good one. The "you're on the internet so you must have no life" insult isn't moronic or unoriginal at all. You must, without a doubt, be a very important member of society, not at all a waste of the already barely valuable gift of life.

As is the case for everyone who takes issue with people who make them sad on the internet, you are one of two kinds of people:

You are exactly what you claim I am, and that is a lonely, pathetic basement dweller. You life is spent eating eight pounds of junk food per day, masturbating to anything you find online that's even remotely feminine, and wishing you had good looks and social skills. You continue to live with your mother until she dies of a combination of lung cancer and liver failure brought on by the chain-smoking and heavy drinking she used to cope with what a failure you are. Your mother mercifully dead and free of the living embodiment of failure she regretfully thrust from her loins, the bills start to pile up and you, unemployed and unable to pay these bills (of course), lose the house and everything in it. Somehow even more of a failure than you already were, you wander from place to place eating out of dumpsters and sleeping in your own filth until you finally die of AIDS, which you contracted from a diseased whore you scrounged up enough money to pay for, so you could finally lose your virginity while at the same time pretending that your mother was back in your life.

Or:

You are the type who was an athlete in high school, who was genetically doomed to be an idiot but managed to finish school and even get a college scholarship because you were so good at a worthless children's game. You went off to college with a suitcase full of polo shirts and condoms, the polo shirts, because you're a douche, and the condoms to prevent you from impregnating the dim-witted young college girls whom you could never touch without the aid of Rohypnol, a drug you refer to as "roofies" because you can neither spell or pronounce Rohypnol. You scrape by with borderline D's for the next four years, and leave the campus to go out into the real world where your realize you're not intelligent or talented enough to do anything of value with your life. Misery and minimum wage ensues for thirty years, then you blow your brains out, and your corpse, alone and forgotten, is not discovered until the smell of rotting flesh seeps under your door and your bodily fluids finally soak through the floor of your studio apartment and into the room below you. Your body is cremated, the ashes scraped into a garbage bin because there was no one in your life who valued you enough to pay for a casket, funeral, or burial plot.

You're undoubtedly one of the two, otherwise you would have better things to do than complain about the theme of a forum that doesn't care about anything you have to say.

The Sims 3 is better in many ways yes, but, it lacks a lot of things that made the Sims 2 great.

The selection of music is terrible, in the Sims 2 custom songs could be placed into the relevant genre, i.e you could place rap songs into the rap folder so they only played when on the rap station, and so on, but now all custom music must be placed into one folder whether it be rap, metal or reggae. The genre's themselves are very limited, indie, classical, salsa, kids and custom? What about rap, rock, metal, reggae, techno, country, jazz etc?

The choice of men's hairstyles is very limited, and it seems a lot of stuff has deliberately been held back just so you can buy it later, whether it be in an expansion pack or via download. Of course we're all well aware that there will be countless expansions that re-add all those missing things back in. Pets, new careers and the like.

Don't get me wrong, it's a great game that adds a lot of new and useful ideas, I like it, but I don't seem as obsessed with it as I did the Sims 2. Maybe because i'm older.

I'd wait if I were you, anyway. I bought the Sims 3, which is great, but it can't compare to Sims 2 with all nine EPs and ten Stuff Packs. Wait until they've released a few EPs. First one is in November.

Actually I didn't buy any, and I don't plan to, I used the 6 that came free with the game of course, and i'll use the 6 that comes with World Adventures too. I'm not giving them any more money than I have to.
