The way that The Sims transitioned into The Sims 2 was just absolutely stunning! I could literally scream right now just looking at the TS2 trailer. It makes me so happy! <3

    I know a lot of people point out the game didn't even look like that nor work that way. But it does have many things that it does do. Like a Sim pushes a Sim away if they try to cuddle on the couch if they aren't interested. Or the Sim sitting on the floor to watch TV while the rest are on the couch. Though kids did't swing off the ceiling, ( I wish they did) it still has many things in that trailer that actually did make it into the game eventually. Such as graduation caps and gowns, and other things.

    It’s been a long time but did TS2 have children who set things on fire? Twisted.

    No, they didn't. Nor did they hang from ceiling fans. Actually, I don't think we ever had ceiling fans either.

    I just love that trailer.
    Despite not everything being available to do in game, I think it perfectly captures the wacky and hilarious humour of the way Sims used to be, before EA devolved into thinking that toilet humour is the only way to go.

    Great trailer, especially in the context of the era. We may not have gotten all that it showed, but what we did get was a game that shattered the box all games had been in for years. We got free flowing camera movement, sims that could move around naturally, not like 80 year olds with arthritis, deeper game play, improved characterization, true 3D, and so much more. Trailer is huge fun to watch and it whetted our appetites for what was to come.

    Even if some of it was an over exaggeration of what they had planned, it sure does more to get people hyped to buy TS2 than the current trailer about Eco Lifestyle. lol On a scale from one to ten I thik the EL trailer is very boring compared to this one.

    Kids might not have been able to do all that but it represents what a handful they are, especially toddlers.

    Haha i never saw this trailer before! Very cool! And it highlights the arrival of my favourite feature of the sims: aging! I loved the sims 1 but i now don't know how i played it without aging.
