What do you think it's the funniest thing in Sims2 that was removed in Sims 3 and 4?

TS2 have lots of little tweaks, like toddlers sleeping in pet beds. washing babies in the sink, kids and teenagers getting embarrassed if they walk in on mum and dad while they are making out etc. What is your favorite one?

Mine I discovered by accident, I was very poor, but I had caught some fish and wanted to make it in to a dinner, so I bought a grill instead of an oven as it was cheaper. I placed it in the kitchen, and it took me forever to realize that you will ALWAYS start a fire if you try to use a grill inside. The fun think though, was that I had a toddler. And there was no chance of getting the mother to try and put the fire out. She went straight to the next room, picked up the toddler and ran outside. A bit annoying as I think she could have put out a bunch of these fires, if she had just tried. But it's kinda cool, she didn't freak out or anything, just went straight in to get the toddler and refused to do anything else until he was safe.

    Chance cards with serious consequences. You never know what is going to happen to your sims at work.

    Not sure if it made it into 3 or 4 but the maid taking stuff when you don’t have enough to pay them.

    I will never forget when Don Lothario lost all of his money at work because of a chance card and the maid happened to be at his house cleaning and was very upset to find he could not pay her and stole something on the way out. LOL

    I dunno if these are the funniest lol..

    The little videos that would play during different events, mostly woohoos lol but also birthdays, weddings, alien abductions, going to uni etc.. They were fun lol

    The social bunny and whole nervous breakdown scenario, you could really let your sims mental health go (perhaps a tad controversial these days)! You would end up befriending a paper cup and cradling a bag of flour thinking it’s a baby, then a shrink would turn up lol. I can’t remember if the social bunny is related but he was funny too.
    Sims 2 had a good aspiration system with fears as well as wants.

    Plus the whole lore that came with the game. You can tell someone put a lot of love into creating the townies and Premade sims. Like the Romeo and Juliet-ness of Veroniville, lots of fun and diverse characters with all sorts of storylines playing out, not just boring sims with vanilla lives lol Strangetown was my favourite, Olive Spectre the serial killer trying to get with Grim, the couple that took olives baby and now experiment on him in their basement! The scientists impregnated with aliens (ok alien abductions are still a thing), the mystery of Bella Goth? Like it’s still fresh and outside the box today, let alone 10/20 years ago. Sims 4 could never lol

    Definitely all the old NPCs like the Unsavoury Charlatan, the Social Bunny, Mrs. Crumplebottom etc... They added so much life and unpredictability to the game!
