I know there must be more Sims 2 players! It's my favorite in the series and one I still regularly play. I used to spend hours of my youth using the in-game story album typing out mini-novels for so many families. Please share some stories and photos from your game.
I have quite a few to share so I'll try to keep it short. The first two are the stories I have the most enjoyment playing.
This was the first couple I made when I bought Sims 2 again. The husband is a famous doctor and the wife a renowned businesswoman. They were always deeply in love. As they aged, the husband started experimenting with concoctions to lengthen their lives and spend more time together.
However, despite his best efforts, his dear wife still passed away from natural causes. It drove the husband insane, and he became a bit of a mad scientist, even contemplating even more questionable ways of bringing back to life his true love.
The horrifying results broke him. His wife only returned a shallow shell of her once beautiful self. Terrified of his own creation, he had her locked in his lower basement, trying to make sense of what was once his wife. Engaging with her haunted his dreams, though it was in some ways it was her, she was irreversibly changed forever. He tried his best to keep this secret hidden from this friends, children, and the community, yet it weighed heavily on his conscience. After some time, he died himself, but his "wife" remained in the basement. Even this became too disturbing to me, and I soon used cheats to delete the wife soon after and she was wiped from memory.
