When did this happen? While I was asleep? While I was fussing about kids can't play tag?
I don't know when or how it happened but I feel brainwashed. What is she talking about?
Everyone knows I love TS2 more than all the games, best game evah, but something strange is in the neighborhood, who you gonna call?
I tried to play my TS2 UC this weekend and I found myself missing I couldn't make my Sim go across the street and pick up a rock. WTH? I don't even like collecting in TS3 or TS4.
I couldn't leave one Sim on a community lot and then go to another community lot or public space with another. I was very frustrated.
I couldn't make Sims cry with 'bring to tears' with the violin. And I missed my sad Sims couldn't call the helpline.
I missed I couldn't go to work with my doctor even though I despise check lists. I missed seeing how much my doctor could get by with not doing on those check lists and still have fun at work, or an affair, or take a nap, or a long walk to the police station where he could eat his lunch.
I missed Sims couldn't take their drink and go sit down and talk to other Sims. They had to remain standing. They could chat to each other but most the time they were back to back etc.
I couldn't bring a Sim to a community lot where I was currently with a controlled Sim so I could easily switch, remain there and send the first one back home. Or have them both engage with Sims there.
I couldn't have an alien who erases other Sims memories, or freeze them with a ray gun,
There was so much I could do in one but not the other, and vice versa.
Hide the children:
O.K. it's official, I realized I actually like TS4.
It needs much more for me to love it, but I have come to the conclusion I have actually been invaded by body snatchers, sometime within the last year, because TS2 was always and forever my back up game, play it when all else fails, and now it is failing me. It didn't hold that special something, this time, I kept thinking about the things I wanted to do in TS4, or couldn't yet, and though I love TS2 forever, I found myself really wanting to go back to TS4 and play my Clue household, even though they should have a butler, be able to go out to eat, and drive a limo...lol...
or my other many families in TS4. Can't say I enjoy kids in this game, but I do enjoy my other Sims lifestages except for teens..and we all know why...
I missed the public spaces, the collecting (only because I like the ancient fossils my Sims can collect) and I missed dragging a cube to build a house.
I like these Sims I just wish they had much, much more to do like being able to create stuff themselves, I need weather, and pets, and restaurants and more chaos and death, but don't blame me, blame the body snatchers. Not my favorite but I guess I have learned to have some fun with it, if it actually made me miss it when I played TS2 this weekend.
Hades must have frozen over.
