Hey - I used to play the original Sims a little bit, but I stopped mostly because it WAS addicting! Not as addicting as Roller Coaster Tycoon to me though...that game was ridiculous. How is 2 better than 1? Just curious 8)

2 adds things to it, like life-goals. long-term and short-term. the system is a lot more advanced. if you create your own character, you can set it to be a lover, a money-hungry person, a family-oriented person, education-oriented, etc. as in the original, your sign also has a lot of influence in your starting abilities. in "university" (expansion) you can get your character's abilities up BEFORE they reach adult-hood, which means as an adult you can concentrate on partying and making friends instead of working out and the like :P
one of the new sims2 expansions also lets you purchase a car (awesome!!), store it in a garage, etc. means you don't have to wait for a taxi anymore :) you can also buy a car-alarm for it, so I'm assuming it's possible it can get stolen. bummer! another expansion (open for business) is my personal favorite. you can make your own store, and it's basically the same sort of deal as the sims online was in regards to a store. you stock things, they sell, you have to restock them. fortunately you get NPCs to re-stock, so nobody has to go through the bother :) Perhaps in a future version they'll add some sort of tally-list :)
You get the awesome option of being able to run your business from home, or from a commercial building you purchase. you can also make it a family business, meaning your family (people you live with) will work there, also. it's pretty cool :D

I've never really been into Sims 2.. I'm more of a SimCity fan hehe. Sims just seems so bland and uninteresting, just like real life =)

I bet they're well on their way with Sims 3, eh? Have you heard anything about it? Or are they resting on their laurels and just releasing more expansion packs for v.2?

I heard from ModTheSims2.com that they are making The Sims 3. I can't find any information on it yet, so I don't think it'll be released anytime soon. I can imagine how awesome it will be :D
