Exactly! It's not that I don't want to play Sims 2 as much anymore, it's that after learning more about Sims 3 and being spoiled with all the new info, screen shots and videos, the anticipation gets way too strong to ignore and it makes it harder to play Sims 2 because it now seems so dull and lacking in comparison to Sims 3. Trust me, I wish I could still look at Sims 2 as the same as before I ever learned about Sims 3, but I can't. Sometimes I'll turn my game on and just sit there not knowing what to do because the mood to play it drifts away quickly.
That's why I don't read about Sims 3 or look at the screenshots It helps a lot. And I will not be dissapointed when Sims 3 finally comes out because I won't know what it was supposed to be like. What we will actually get will be far from those screenshots and videos anyway, as it was with Sims 2 (Anyone remember the first Sims 2 Video? Wasn't it cool? Is Sims 2 THAT cool?)
If the past provides any experience, Sims 3 will be a loser for the first six months to a year. That's how long it took for new custom content to arrive to make Sims 2 more interesting than Sims 1. I hated Sims 2 at first and quit playing it because it was such a huge letdown after all the cool mods we had made for Sims 1.
I'll probably get it (Sims 3, depending on cost) immediately but will be surely annoyed at some things until we can mod them more. I know many don't agree with my gameplay method but it's already set it with me. I'm a cheater dangit. lol (with the game) I appreciate aspiration adjustments and relationship adjustments (especially if something goes wrong that shouldn't, this way you can fix it). I think it'll take adjustment but I can see myself eventually appreciating it the way I did Sims 2. Atleast similar.
Insim doesn't remove my fun.. I use it as needed or desired but try to still do many things without the adjustments. What ruins my fun is the annoyances of some of the NPC's. Without the INSIM I'd never be able to "fix" the NPC situations, amongst so many other things.
Good thing we are all entitled to our own views and ways Some diversity is good..
Hope you guys have a good one...
