I used to play The Sims quite a bit, but since EA starting using SecuRom, I stopped buying from them. So, I stopped mid-way through the Sims 2 expansion packs. I tried playing the Sims on Facebook, but it wasn't the same for me. Part of games that make them so appealing to me is that I can play, walk away, and not have everything go to pot while I'm gone. LOL So, now I just play Bingo online and a little on Pogo.
They don't use SecurRom anymore. Haven't with 3 at all.
i used to play the sims in highschool... always used the cheat code to get $$$$$$$$ and then i would make a huge house with all the best stuff and get board LOL. I used to play Worlds of Warcraft..... lol no i'm not really that much of a gamer, but in college we didnt have cable and i hadnt discovered digi scrapping yet, so i playd my boyfriend's game, and got totally addicted, and dumped him, and found my DH on that game.... im such a nerd lol.... but since we have been "clean" of WOW for a few years we just play on the xbox... well he does i'd much rather spend my free time with designing and scrapping, or on my DVR
but if i did get a game for my computer it would be odd world... loved that game when it was on Playstation 1 way back in the day, they havnt made anything for the xbox360
If you like WoW but not the expense, try DnD based games by Blizzard and Wizards of the Coast: Baldur's Gate, Icewind Dale, Neverwinter Nights. Josh got me hooked on them. We play via LAN
I do those via mobile. Phone is always on me. I am checking it more than the computer.
I love the sims and have been pretty obsessed in the past, but I was wasting soo much time on it, I quit and uninstalled them. Chris and I both played it all the time. I'm not sure, but I think about 6 months ago we bought sims 3 and all the expansions and played for a couple months pretty much straight. I got mad though because he'd be simming and I wanted to scrap and go on the forums!!
