I used to be obsessed with Sims 2, like most PC games because of all the mods out there, Sims 3 just didn't do it for me though, I haven't played any of the games since. Of course I'm more of a GTA guy now, Sims just seems too childish/casual to me now.

Well all I know is that I use to play The Sims 2 around 2007 and I really liked it alot and started collecting the expansion packs when they were on sale. I never really knew that The Sims games were that great until around 2007 when I went to Walmart and got The Sims 2 Deluxe which has The Sims 2 and Nightlife together. I was soo excited that I can control people and make guys the way I want them to look. Also I made myself there and I had some townies like Dustin Broke or Joe Carr be my boyfriend. Joe Carr is a townie and he is a India guy. Dustin Broke lives in the Broke family with Brandi Broke which is his mother and Beau Broke that is still a toddler. Dustin Broke is a hot white boy and come to think of it I did like how the people in The Sims 2 looked like better than The Sims 3. I think The Sims 2 people looked more real. But for other things like the tress and houses etc looked better on The Sims 3 since you can have the grapics higher than The Sims 2 game.

I played the hell out of the first sims game when it came out....bought all the expansions 1 at a time. when sims 2 came out that was my cue to stop buying the games. I usually found myself playing the game mostly to build/decorate houses.

The Sims isn't really what I'd call a casual a game.

It's also kind of boring to talk about because it's not a competitive multiplayer game, nor is it a graphical revolution.

It's the same reason why people don't show off their air cooling as much as people show off their water cooling.
Back in the day all of our friends would show off and compete for the best looking house and jobs. (no cheats)
Then when we found out about downloading extra stuff it changed it entirely and made it awesome.

Same goes for the tycoon games, mainly roller-coaster tycoon.

Casual, sheesh, get out of your shooters for a minute lol. I spent weeks building and landscaping a block in my town, looked absolutely amazing. I haven't re installed it since I put my new pc together, might just be time to get addicted again. I'm not in it for the Simming, I love the building =)

Oh, and my advice.... just borrow Medieval, it's quite poor. Bunch of different "ambitions" to take and unlock, but they ALL default to the same kingdom, npc's, and quests(which are hidden timer based, ewwww) , no building mode either, just item clutter(which all of the important stuff is given, once a building is put up) Got a good couple hours of it, but man, they replayability just is not there at all.

Yea I think that was the biggest part of the game, building.
