My second life.

EA’s Sims series is probably one of the most popular games in the world.

But I have to say my favorite in the series, with all the main games (1 through 4) considered, is the Sims 2.

I haven’t played the first Sims because I was about ten years too late. I have played the third one though. But I wasn’t impressed.

There were many features (new) in the 3rd one that many people applauded. The absence of loading screens, the better graphics, the more life-like game figures and also the sheer scale of what you could do. But then I found it much too large to my liking. I found that when I played it, I only used up about a quarter of the new features. The new features were good, but they just didn’t appeal to me and I found myself repeating my playing style from the Sims 2.

But then I tried going back to Sims 2 with Windows 8 and then 8.1 and guess where that got me? Game crashes due to lack of Graphic Card data files or somesuch problem.

I was disappointed enormously. I had been looking forward to playing the Sims 2 Ultimate Collection with all the expansions and the stuff packs.

So I scoured the interwebs for a solution and finally after much searching, found one.

And thank god it worked.

As for Sims 4, I don’t think I’m the only one to not want to play it. I read some previews and Sims 4 seems to have much less functionality and less free-play than even Sims 1. Urgh.

No thank Maxis. I’ll stick to Sims 2. It’s just realistic enough to hook me but also kinda stupid enough to let me ignore the kids and spend entire days making a shit load of Servos.
I mean what’s not to love about Servos? Oh and magic.


1. New games rarely get me excited. Old games actually excite me more. Maybe for nostalgic purposes, maybe because of the fact that my laptop mostly cannot handle all the high-end graphics of today’s games or maybe because I don’t have to have a reason. And when the old games we’re talking about is Sims 2, well, that’s just peachy.

Accomplishment. On to drowning the main sim in the pool.
