The point of Sims isn't winning. It's creating/building/living.

"The Sims 2 is a LIFE simulator." - Finale notice.

The word "or" in the message pretty much allows the deaths. It doesn't discourage the behaviour of killing people. It was intended as a life simulator, but works equally well as a death one.

Exactly. It's like life. Real world. Get it? People live and die? Life simulator?

So RG, you don't let me complain in my own thread but you complain in mine. Oh the Irony. Come on there must be something about the Sims you like.

I don't see where I wrote "I hate everything in the Sims". I'm just not a fan, and I don't like many aspects of it. I'm sure I'd like some stuff in the Sims, it's just not a game, and not something that I spend my time playing because I don't see the point.

Well that's fine. Meanwhile the millions of fans will continue to love it.

Sims is the only pc game i buy. I brought all the sims 1 games when they were new and now they're gathering dust under my bed, so I only buy a couple of the really good ones in the 2nd series now. And they'll prob go under my bed when the 3rd series comes out

Well, I'm loving the neighbourhoods. With the city blocks, gorgeous sky, beach at one point - it's all very beautiful.

The personality choices! You could fill up your whole game and everyone could be different! I'm so making an evil twin family!

it's a show when people from the public go into a house for about 10 weeks. and every week someone gets voted off the show! The Big Brother House has tonnes of cameras in one building! and the people in the house don't know anything about the outer world!! quite funny!

There is no mention of locks on those front doors. I hated how the neighbors would just stick around the house when they got invited or when celebrating a birthday. Also now there can be more neighborhood squabbles. I also saw some cell phones.
