I have 74.4 GB of free space, and yet my computer runs somewhat slow sometimes, which is kind of worrying... :/

I might have to delete some things off my hard drive- I've got 2.48 gig... and that's without the Sims and the expansion packs...

I wonder if Dad will buy me a laptop just for the game

I think Sims 2 looks aweosme, but I won't be able to get it for a while, becuase it takes months after the Pc version is released, for them to bring out the mac version. Plus I love the Sims 1, and The game and all the expansions take up so much space. My game crashes alot too, and it's soo slow, it's quite annoying. But from the pics I have seen, Sims2 looks amazing. But I don't want to part with Sims1.

Check for Spyware and all that jazz if you haven't already. That jizz slows your computer like freaking woah.

MWUAHAHAAH. EB Games just called me and told me that they have just recieved Sims 2! WHOOP WHOOP. My daddy is going to take me when he gets home from work. I'm so freaking stoked.

I bought Sims 2 this morning It's installing as I type. Had a few problems to begin with- you need Direct X 9.0 and I had to install that and my computer took 40 minutes to restart, so you might want to watch out for that if you need to install it.

Can the Sims 2 run by itself? Or does it need the original Sims to run. I have quite a few of the Sims but they arn't installed.

I GOT IT!! and it is awesome. I am a die hard sims fan to the grave i think. all the waiting has been totally worth it. One peice of advice, if you're going to have a baby sim, have two parents. I've only done single parents so far and they are so frustrated. Those babies are just hard to care for. Not that its not rewarding because it is! Having birthday parties are the bomb!

I reccomend this game to everyone. I know its expensive, beleive me I know. I was saving for a year while waiting for it. But it really is worth it. I think the worst part tough, is the the thought bubbles have really bad blurry graphics. I mean really bad which is weird because everything else is beyond any level of graphics I've seen on one of these games before. maybe they just ran out of time. I dunno.

This game is far too addictive, and I still can't figure out why... what is so fun about making sim-me go to the bathroom and watch TV??? I'm about ready to kill my sim-wife since every time she writes in her diary she thinks about how much she hates our baby daughter Hermione... I think I'll go create Bellatrix Lestrange to move in next door, she'll like the kid much better.

oh yeah I had to install that direct x 9.0 too but it wasn't that bad. I just recently bought my own computer and its in my room where I have all my sims and where I talk to eveyone without my parents knowing. ( they might think I'm being stalked or something) I'm vcareful though. anyhoo, yeah you have to install that but its a small price to pay...well added to the humungous price for the game of course. oh well.

yeah when sims original was on my families computer, it crashed all the time and I spent so much time defragmenting the hard drive because it would be so corrupted. my new computer with LOTS of space runs slow sometimes too and it makes me worry as well.

LONG LIVE SIMS!

really? I wonder why it does that. but the bubbles are hardly recognisable. I had to look for ages on pause to see that a wall was in the way of my sim. thats how bad they are. they look more like incoherant blobs to me. I really wonder. hmmm. may be there will be a patch.

Nannys are wonderful,

Aw! my sims haven't hated their babies yet. Its a wonder why they don't but I always pick family for my sims aspiration because thats mine. or romance but have you seen the things they want romancers to do? they like to ''woohoo'' alot. I'll let your imagination wander on that one.

I love to kill my ex boyfriends who broke my heart. It makes me feel much better. Come on you know you've done that before!!

I dunno. Its weird to watch the really older couples kissing so passionatly. weird. but I like the aspiration and job gadgets ou can get. awesome.

hmm...can't remember what I was going to say...

Yeah, installed direct X 9.0- did that this morning and it took the computer until 1pm to restart after installing it . My dad will be home from work in either 6 minutes or an hour and 6 minutes (don't know what time he finishes) and he can do it for me, I hope. If not, I'm returning it and getting my money back and writing a very nasty letter to the EA people.
