I am not what anyone would call a gamer, by any means, but I do love the Sims!
The Sims2 is a simulation game that allows me to set up my own neighborhoods of people, who then interact with each other either by command or on their own.
One of my favorite parts of the game is designing homes. There are several tools in the game that allow me to select porches, floor types, roof types, window styles, etc as well as allows me to landscape my lots. While building a home from scratch takes time, it lets me add more personality to my neighborhoods.
Something that I like in the Sims2, is that I can not only select the personality types of my Sims, but that I can also add another dimension by adding a few likes and dislikes. For instance, I can make my
sim have a thing for blondes in swimsuits.
I also like the option that allows me to register my game at eagames so that I can then download creations that other sim users have designed and use them in my game. This allows me to have TV characters like Gil Grissim and Spiderman in my neighborhood! Haha!
For me the Sims2 is just a way to relax and de-stress. It gives me an escape that I quite enjoy. While I do not play very often, when I do it is very easy to get lost in the game. Time just flies!
