I don't know if anyone has seen this but EA Games are releasing The Sims 2
. Call me old fashioned but... I didn't think that was possible; what with lal the expansion packs and so on they released for the original game, isn't this just too big a step? Won't they have to start building it up again and just generally annoy the original fans?
I wasn't much of a fan of the game anyway, I played it for a few months then just got really bored. The screenshots to the new game look pretty nifty though. Go take a look.
