I've been playing The Sims 2 since I uninstalled The Sims 3 about a year or so ago, and I have to say that it is soooo much better! I really missed it. I will admit that there are certain things from 3 that I do miss, like the 'Hand of God' feature, the inventory system, the ability to give each sim in a household a different last name, and a few others, but all in all, those few features really can't make up for the lack of gameplay or the robotic sims. So, I've decided to re-do the Asylum Challenge in 2, in the hopes that it will be more interesting and chaotic...aspiration failure ftw. I created 7 sims using the randomize button...random looks, personality, aspiration, and turn-ons/offs. And then I created my sim. I randomized everything for her except her looks...what can I say...I like pretty sims. I moved them on a ginormous lot and, with the help of CC, I made an awesome looking run-down old Victorian mansion. After I completed it, though, I realized that it would look better from the outside if it had a second story...but I didn't have a good place to put stairs...so it's just for show. lol My husband said it could be the haunted attic. :P
Just a warning...as this game is fairly old, the pictures are quite small and low-res, so please forgive that.
