I'm so excited for it! They also revealed a new movie for it. It doesn't show off any game play, but it's more like an official trailer for the game. It sounds and looks almost like a Movie trailer. September will be here before we know it, hopefully. I'm interested in seeing what Sim Animals is. I really want to see how they intend to do that. I have a suspicion that Sim Animals is a game where you play AS an animal... But of course that's just my random speculation based on the title. Now I've got to save up my money for all of this! And I also have the feeling that a Spore Expansion Pack is inevitable... I'm concerned mainly about the system specs of that game. My comp may not be able to run it. Strangely, it doesn't really have a video card. It takes memory from the CPU to render graphics. If/When I get a new comp (AKA when my dad buys a new one) I'll make sure that it has a good graphics card in it to run high end games... But back to the sims... The Sims 2: Freetime Expansion pack will be out later this month (February 26th) in the U.S., and The Sims 2: Kitchen and Bathroom Interior Design Stuff will be out in either April or March. I hope I have money for both of them... XD

Oh man, I used to play so many sim games when I was little. SimAnt, SimLife, and SimTown rounded out my PC gaming in the nineties. :)

I remember the first time I played The Sims when I was twelve. I had played a little of simcity, and I was talking to my dad about it while we driving home one day. He was telling me he had some other sim games, but the one I was very interested was The Sims. He wouldn't let me play them though for a while, just to give me something to look forward to or something like that. But I was so interested that the next day while he was at work I went through all the cds in the office, found it, and started playing it anyways. He wasn't too happy when he found out, but it was too late; I was already addicted. :P
