Sims 2 is the best. They've announced The Sims 2: Glamour Life Stuff. (It's a stuff pack, not an expansion pack. Two very different things.) The next expansion is The Sims 2: Pets! Go pets! Pets will also be on console from what I hear, which is quite dissapointing to me... Anyway, that's it for now...

Sims 2 was the best! It was the most i've ever anticipated a game, until now with TSL.

The Sims Wii looks strangely cute, and interesting. I will play the sims on the Wii to try it out before saying it may be bad. A lot of people say it will be bad, but remember to never judge a book by it's cover...

the sims is on wii?  :o I don't think I'd like it though, I don't like the console sim games ... or console games in general for that matter.

I don't think it makes sense to put The Sims on the consoles. Then you can't use expansion packs! :P I never did like The Sims though, so whatever. :P

I like the first one..  Have the complete collection.  The second one bored me, it was too complex!

I also have Sim City, Sim Farm and SIM ANT.  Heck yes.

I like the second one, particularly the aging part. That way you're not just controlling the same sims forever and ever anymore, there's actually a time limit to it. I can't play the first one anymore, its too different. When the second one gets to complex for me is when you add the million expansion packs to it. (Although I still want to try Sims Pets, haven't gotten it yet.)

heres my 2 cents on games-if its possible to do in real life(ex. sims, flight sims), then do it in real life.  its much more fun.

I got the Sims: Life Stories, and it has classic free play, but it also has a brand spankin' new STORY MODE. I haven't tried the story mode yet, but free play is lacking. The lot sizes only go up to medium. The good thing is that you start with double the amount of simoleans that you usaully do, and all the cheats from the Sims 2 games and expansions work, just about. Family Funds is in it, plus Motherlode. I love Motherlode. It's my favorite. I am assuming that you have to unlock more lot sizes, but I have no proof to this. The Sims 2: Seasons expansion Pack was released yesterday, but I won't be getting it for a while due to lack of funds. If only I could put in Motherlode in real life! XD

I heard it is for beginners and story mode is like the scenarios from the console versions of the Sims.

Well, considering my PS2 version has story mode, I'd assume it's similar. XD I really like it though. :P

I haven't played either version's story mode enough to make a decision! (I've played the PS2 story mode minimally, and the PC I haven't played at all. XD) But free play is kind of dissapointing... No Jumbosized lots to use my cheats on! XD

This is pretty funny if you've ever played Sims.

Just a spoof of the sims games, like how stupid the AI can be at times and how unrealistic some of the movements are. I liked the repo man and the burglar at the end; that really is how it looks when the take stuff. Poof! It just disappears.

Well, it's been quite a while, but here is some Sims updates for you all!

The Sims 3 is confirmed to be in development!

Simcity Societies has been officially announced and will be out in November of this year!

The Sims 2: Bon Voyage expansion pack has been announced and will be released this september.

A new Stuff Pack has been found online. I forget the name, but it has to do with teens.

The Sims 2 Castaway will be released on the Wii, Playstation 2 and Nintendo DS sometime this year. To be honest, I forget when...

Mysims will be released on the Nintendo Wii and Nintendo DS in september, I think. I am not one hundred percent positive...

So that's all I've got for the moment. I could've been much more detailed, but oh well... XD

I'm looking forward to how My Sims works out. It's certainly an interesting idea.

(Posted on: August 08, 2007, 02:37:38 PM)


I thought that I'd revive this thread to tell you all about 5 new Sims games, and the release date of Spore. Though not entirely sims, it is made by the creator of the sims. EA has now announced Sim Animals, SimCity Creator, My Sims Party, My Sims Kingdom, and The Sims Next Gen (or Sims 3, if you wish to interperate it like that...) I got this info from http://www.thesims2.co.za (I once again forgot how to do the cool HTML code thing... It's sad really... I should make a thread for HTML codes and everything...) Anyway, I just thought It'd be good to post this here for you to enjoy. Oh, and Spore is coming out September 7th in the U.S., and MySims is going to the PC... Anyway, enjoy this info!
