Default Sims 2 vs. Sims 3 - What are the differences?
Is there a place to buy Sims 2?

I play Sims 3 a lot.
Sims 4? Okay, they got my money.

But there are a many dedicated Sims 2 fans. What is the differences between Sims 2 and Sims 3? What am I missing?

There are quite a few. The Sims Wiki actually has a page devoted to it. You can find it here: http://sims.wikia.com/wiki/Comparis..._and_The_Sims_3

Try somewhere like ebay or Amazon - you often find versions of the game available still. Other people suggest thrift shops.

But the question about comparing TS2 and TS3 - don't. We got bored of that conversation a while back and it never turns out well.

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.

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.

If you get Fun with Pets then i would suggest you also get Apartment Life to or you will have some minor bugs.

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 )

Need to add that I will rather play Sims 4 and do that now and again before touching Sims 3 with a 100 m long pole again.
