I keep thinking that whenever I come into this thread. Then I remind myself that I only play the Sims to build the houses...I never actually get to 'live' mode.
Same here! The game is boring but I love building dream houses or houses for "celebrities". I used to play with a burned cd my college friend gave me. It's all scratched now and I've been having Sims cravings since I haven't played in over a year. I really want to build pretty houses though! I may have to actually buy the game.
Good things come to those who shop.
