This is absolutely adorable! <333
After over a year without an update we have over 70 new pictures from the Duckworths! :D
alienpod tagged me and I’ll never be able to refuse a sims 2 meme! :P
1. When did you start playing The Sims 2?
On release day! I’d had a countdown in my pink fluffy diary, yes it was really pink and fluffy, for over a year and had pre-ordered and played body shop and everything! I was completely nuts about the sequel to my favorite computer game at the time. I was 13 years old. :P
2. What did you like most about The Sims 2?
From the get go I thought that the game being in 3D was the most extraordinary and awesome thing ever! I loved the new life stages and the fact that the children aged up. I’ve been through several stages of loving this game since then and now I’d say that what I enjoy most about The Sims 2 is how customizable it is, you can craft everything from the freckles on your sim’s nose to the world he/she lives in. That is what makes it truly amazing to me. I think that is one reason why this game is enjoyable to such a large variety of play styles.
3. What did you spend most of your time doing in The Sims 2?
At first I created one sim couple after another and gave them money through cheats so that they could have all the expensive things and live in the “oh-so-cool” white condo’s in Pleasantview. I didn’t really get anywhere legacy wise and I didn’t care. I was just having so much fun. Remember the first time I got twins and couldn’t take care of them so the social worker came to rescue them from my criminal mastermind sim. Nowadays I mostly build and decorate but I love to imagine that I “play” the game too.
4. One thing you won’t forget about The Sims 2?
This is a joke right? x) My life would be something else entirely if I hadn’t got obsessed with this game. I can’t even imagine my life without it..
5. One thing that annoyed you the most about The Sims 2?
The first thing that annoyed me was that I got nauseous from the camera movements! I managed to overcome that though.. :P Other than that I’d say that the bugs and glitches are the most annoying things. Without mods I’d probably not still be playing this game.
6. How has The Sims 2 impacted your life?’
It made me interested in design and architecture and is therefore the main reason why I’ve chosen to become an architect in real life. Quite the impact, see question 4.
7. Will you be playing The Sims 2 after the release of The Sims 4?
I’ve been playing this game for almost 14 years and I don’t intend to stop anytime soon regardless of new releases. The Sims 4 also looks like a shipwreck of a game so I’d rather keep my money thank you very much.

Wow, that’s pretty heavy.. My, soon 1 year old, beast of a computer beats them but not by much. GTX650? That’s almost crazy..
I have a theory they give us bad houses on purpose so we have something to makeover :P I still cling to this in hope despite your new evidence
Hehe, one can hope.. I’ve kind of lost mine though. ^__^
You can place the windows on any height on the wall, ANY HEIGHT. That’s so insane. It’s as smooth as the rotating in ts3. And you can make floating room. xD
Watching some SimGuru’s building a house in the sims 4 and suddenly I understand how those odd, completely senseless houses, that ships with the games come to life.. They have absolutely no sense of colors, materials or decoration. They just put a black toilet in the corner of a 6x4 tile bathroom with orange wall tiles and wooden floor. Omg, I’m dying a little. xD
Earlier reports of an official Sims 4 livestream now been confirmed. The Sims team has just announced via Twitter that they will stream a live “Let’s Play” tomorrow (August 26th) at 12pm Pacific. As usual we…
9PM here in Sweden apparently, first time ever that I think I’ll be able to catch such a stream. ;)
Luna Duckworth is heading to Uni and it made me inspired enough to start with the makeovers of some community lots in Sim State University. Classical style!
