Recommended Posts

i don't know about anybody here, i see a lotta video games and stuff in this forum, but when i read about the impending release of Sims 2 next year, i 'bout peed myself. this is the kind of gameplay i've been dreaming about since i was like 10. i used to play simtown on my old 75mhz compaq, then finally we got a computer where the sims worked, and it was awesome. but this, this is like detail, i mean detail. i've been thinking about buying some more expansion packs, but now i'm salivating for this (ok well, metaphorically salivating).



The Sims™ 2 is the first entirely-new generation of The Sims, the ground-breaking game that allowed players to create and control people.


The Sims 2 challenges you to direct the journey of your Sims' lives as they grow from infancy through childhood, teenage life and adulthood. Starting with a personality that you give them (or that they inherit from their parents), your Sims will develop in unique ways based on your choices and influence.


As they progress through life, your Sims will collect memories which shape who they are, what options they have and how they behave. These experiences can have a short or long-term effect on relationships between family members and friends. Experiences between Sims when they are children can affect their relationships as teens and adults. Your Sims can have casual friendships or make life-long enemies.


Your Sims live in a realistic and vivid 3-D world of your own creation. When you build their homes, you'll have new options that will allow you to create decks, attics, and build on hillsides. You'll be able to choose from hundreds of new objects, many of which can be customized from within the game. And once you've built the perfect home, you'll be able to zoom in close to see every detail of Sim life, from the food in the refrigerator to the expression of moods and feelings on your Sims' faces.


Rounding out the experience, The Sims 2 delivers dozens of features requested from fans over the past four years. A new "Create-A-Sim" feature will allow you to easily make unique and detailed character faces with a variety of hair styles, facial hair, make-up and accessories. You'll also be able to choose from a wide selection of casual, formal, cool and crazy clothing styles. And carrying on the tradition of giving players the ability to customize their game, The Sims 2 is designed to allow players to easily integrate content created by players outside the game.


and in this world, two guys/girls can get married. :D

maybe not capture the *full* magic of being introduced to something rad like that, but i think it'll add a really cool dimension to gameplay that we haven't experienced. you can only have so much wonder at an original thing, i don't expect to be totally blown away again, but i'm definitely looking forward to it. i think they really worked hard on this. (granted they're prolly gonna make a zillion, but still, it could be like say, the matrix trilogy. :\)
