The Sims 3 Into the Future for PC and MAC Brand New Factory Sealed
I don't know, I guess playing through Sims, Sims 2 and the ridiculously huge amount of expansion packs made me bored, and installing the Sims 3 and booting it up didn't really give me the sense of... happiness? that Sims 2 had. And opening the create a Sim screen to see a duck ugly Sim with the graphics looking just that slightly better than the Sims 2 really really put me off. I uninstalled it after that.If people can make their own mods that look so much more detailed in the Sims 2 compared to the Sims 3, really, how much effort were they putting into the items...?This is all my own opinion, though. Might install it again once the mod community gets rolling.
I love the new Sims 3 but can't help feel I get more game play and features with Sims 2. Having bought all the expansion packs for sims 2, it feels as though in giving us sims 3 they have stripped out all the addon bits that you got with all the sims 2 addons installed. I feel like I've downgraded rather than upgraded. I don't like the idea of having to buy all the items that I got free in my expansion packs. EA should have done a version of sims 3 aimed at those that bought all their expansion packs for sims2 - I would have paid a little more for it (as I did in buying the collectors ed of sims 3)
