as you can see, this blog hasn’t been updated lately with regards to The Sims 2. yes, i’m still buying the expansion packs, and yes, i’ll eventually get around to playing it again, but i’ve lost interest in The Sims 2 after Seasons came out. i picked it up again when Free Time came out because you could play the violin (which is what i played from 6th - 12th grades) but then i stopped playing again & i haven’t played it since. i have all the expansion packs & stuff packs but i haven’t installed IKEA Stuff Pack, Apartment Life, or Kitchen & Bath Stuff Pack. i hardly download anything except from Around the Sims 2 because i’ve donated to that site & i get e-mails when new objects are available. i even bought a 6 month sub to The Sims 2 Resource so i could download from my favorite featured artists like Windkeeper, etc, but i think i put that into use the first month and i think it’s already run out. i check Mod the Sims 2 from time to time, but i haven’t been active on there for over a year. i think that when The Sims 3 comes out, i’ll play it again - of course, to check out the graphics - but i won’t download anything. i think that’s what got me… i spent way too much time downloading everything rather than playing so i lost interest quickly. also, i need to play outside my normal playing bubble and let my Sims suffer once in a while. LOL i spoiled them with hacks and everything.
so that’s where i’m at. there will be no more blog posts about The Sims 2 unless i get a wild hair or something. i’ll probably blog about SPORE since that is what i’m playing at the moment. so i hope you come back next May when The Sims 3 comes out! i can’t wait until it does!
