Default The Sims 2 : who is gonna buy it here ?

I'm really anticipating the long awaited follow up to the cult game from Maxis and it seems this time it s more aim at adults with some really ambiguous pics and situations

What s your thoughts ? Do you think Maxis plans to make a more "adult" oriented game this time ?

Not me. The first game was okay, but it got old pretty fast. My sister will most likely buy it though.

The first game bored the hell out of me, so I don't think I'll be investing in the sequel

My experience with The Sims is similar to Serial Freak's.

For a while, it was crazy good. I remember staying up till 4 or 5 in the morning playing it just because I lost all track of time. But then it lost its draw and I just couldn't play it anymore. Got too monotonous for me...

The sequel doesn't seem to be adding much to the game. It just seems like a better looking expansion pack.

The first game was compelling--for all of five minutes. I'll pass on the sequel, thanks.

Not me, I liked the other Maxis games better, Sim City, Sim Tower, etc....

Why won't Maxis do a new original Sim game? Sim Badger? Sim Roach? Sim Godzilla? Sim Butcher?

Yes. EA Games presents The Sims XXX.

Like others here, though, there's probably no way I'll ever play this unless I get a free copy with my next computer (that's how I got the first Sims). I played the original for all of about five minutes before I became bored with it. I can't understand why anyone would want to play that game. But I guess there are people who like it, and that's what counts.

It s what we can call a matter of taste

I did enjoy it and will enjoy the new one for sure .

It s certainly more interesting than watching a real tv show isn't it (well it s the same but it s more "interactive" since you re acting on the characters (or not) ) .

Anyway, i see nobody likes this game here but it did sold millions and millons of copies and is still the best selling game ever on PC (nothing less) so there s surely people who like it

It wasn t old so fast for me

I did play it one or two hours then would go to another game (or vacation) and would come back the next day ect .

I just think there s something attractive to it (hum voyeurism anyone ), it s kinda like an interactive real tv show (or a giant tamagochi)

Will play it between hours into Farenheit

I don't like reality TV either. (Although I admit Big Brother is pretty addictive )

I will say that there's some cool tech stuff under the sequel. One neat thing is that there's a really cool aging and genetics system in place. Characters are born, age, and die. Plus, parents pass on traits to their children fairly realistically, with recessive/dominant traits and everything taken into account.

Unfortunately, the basic gameplay is still the same, so no thanks

There s an ADN ' s system which makes children of a couple on the game looking like their parents, sounds interesting

Dude, there's two chicks kissing in one of their screenshots, and there's another with this girl bent over and the guy is looking at her butt. They're definately targeting a new audience.

I think the stuff you mentioned will actually change the game quite a bit, obscuring what we could consider "the basic gameplay".

At least we know they're not going to cancel this game in mid-production. I guess that's some sort of comfort...or something.

Not really, no. It's still all about little fake people doing nothing much. If I want to watch people, I'll go outside.
