I got my new computer on Monday and man, does it ever kick some serious ass. I love it. When I bought the computer, I told myself I was going to wait awhile before spending any money on games. But, I'm weak and I couldn't resist the urge to buy The Sims 2
. I was at Target buying pantyhose and the game was on sale and I totally caved. I just had to see what the new computer could do. So I got home and loaded it up. It's a massive game, yet it runs flawlessly on my new machine. I am so happy. And the game rocks. It's greatly improved over the original version which was awesome. The graphics are incredible and my sims react more realistically. It's a lot easier to manage time for my sim. There are days off from work and thus more leeway to work on skills and socialization. The sims age now which is cool from a realism standpoint, but I don't know how I will react to seeing my sim die of old age. I get kind of attached to my characters and I don't want bad things to happen to them. But it is just a game after all, so I guess it'll be ok. Anyway, I'm seriously addicted to this game. I've been parking my ass in front of the computer the minute I get home and keep playing well into the night. It's like crack. I can't stop. I think Randy is a little concerned. I'm really obsessed with it right now. I've even been having dreams about The Sims. It's really that fun. I am such a dork.
