If you haven't played the Sims 2 before and are wondering what is the attraction, it's the sims. The sims 2 is far more about the sims themselves. The funny things they do and how they interact with each other. It's also highly moddable and far more sandbox like than any other sims game. There is a mod for just about every aspect that can be modded.
That's all I'm going to say because this could quickly turn into another one of those Sims 2 vs Sims 3 threads and most of us don't want another one of those.

But there are a many dedicated Sims 2 fans. What is the differences between Sims 2 and Sims 3? What am I missing?
Robust amounts of features with in-depth simulation, and Maxis humour. Oh and foliage that doesn't stalk you.
No one can match their fame. You know its these celebrities that bring to our culture pure shame.
And with misguided vanity our sins multiply - Self-admiration - do or die.
Well I guess I'll lose my life, because of my belief that no one is that perfect.
This set up will give you the most out of it and will let you know if you like it and then you may want to get the rest.
Now you can find better deals on Ebay or Half.com if you want to go look for them.
On used games just make sure you get a good disk with the code and you good to go.
Sims 2 is better. Much better It has charm, humour, never-ending possibilities and you are actually really, truly in charge of every Sim in your hood. No gf or friend moving away overnight, no teen thrown in jail for no good reason at all, no need for 1 000 mods to play (but you can have that too, if you wish )
