The Sims 2 (PC)
Advantages: Great graphics, gameplay, downloads, really innovative and unique and plenty to explore
Disadvantages: Addictive, stay clear when you have your exams
I started playing The Sims (1) about 7 years ago and I'm STILL playing! This game is like nothing else, you get to control the lives of these characters that you make. You can base them on you and your friends, on characters in fiction, whatever. It's great fun and you can get creative.
I'm suffering from terrible withdrawal symptoms. Everyone else has stopped playing somewhere along the line after Sims 1 but I'm still hooked!
It's the only game I play (I don't like violent games) except for Pharoah and IcyTowers (lol) on the PC and that's because it's the best!
Once in a while you get bored of it, but a few months later you will get sudden Sims cravings and go back!
I love downloading clothes for my sims it feels like shopping without the empty wallet :P
Completely unique, online downloads! great gameplay you can explore
addictive! will suffer from withdrawal symptoms. Too much time spent downloading stupid Sims Clothes when you could easily be out there doing something productive with your life!
This game is seriously seriously great fun, but I must say it is a waste of time. Obviously there are things that I've learnt from playing this and there are soo many possibilities you can just kind of spend forever on this thing and watch your sims get born, live, die, generation after generation, build relationships, careers, lives, hobbies....
And these expansion packs are like boosters for your drug addiction they keep coming up with new things like OOo lets add pets- I love dogs why are they doing this to me?
It's a love-hate relationship, really. You love the game but at the same time you hate it because you've been playing it for soo many hours!
Summary: Amazing amazing game but soo addictive!
