    So I just heard about Sims 3, and it looks quite amazing! The graphics are more improved, and the sims look less cartoony! The best part is that you still controll a single family, but instead of it on a lot, its in a town. The sims that you arent playing as grow and live even when you dont have controll. It looks awesome.

    I have been a big Sims fan for a long time, and cant wait until Dec. 09. Here is some linkage - http://thesims3.ea.com/

    DISCUSS!

    I think it looks like Sims 2... alot. The character models are very dissapointing.

    If they've changed it so you don't have to spend all your time just keeping the Sims alive (Eat, damn you, eat! Quick find someone to talk to... oh, you wet yourself. Damn, schoolbus, go go go) then I'll be very happy.

    I never quite understood The Sims.

    Ugh, Dec 09?

    That's way too far away to be getting excited about, on the other hand, Spore is coming this very same year in only a few months! Now THAT'S something to be excited about.

    I might give this a go in TWO YEARS TIME! For Feck sake! "More realistic"? No! I think It's Sims 2 with a coat of glitter. Anyway, there's only TWO YEARS to wait!
    The thing I'm most looking forward too is the iPod touch 2.0 update and games for it!

    I agree.

    Spore > The Sims.

    Looks pretty darn cool. I do hope they make it for Mac at the same time as they are planning to for Windows.

    Looks good. I used to be addicted to The Sims (Original) a few years ago, but I never managed to get Sims 2 because my computers weren't good enough to run them, I don't think (It was back before I was a nerd, haha).

    Might get this but at the end of the day, it's going to be loads of money spent on expansion packs, etc. just so that they can be replaced when Sims 4 comes out, which probably won't be much different either.

    Plus it will be scarily similar too real life soon.

    I enjoyed the original Sims, however i found that the Sims 2 was too detailed and there were too many personal things to do with your mouse. Also, the in game time was paced too fast to do everything that you would do in real life. But then again, thats just me.

    Keep in mind, they're still working on it. It will probably look much better for the final release.

    EA never makes the Sims games for mac. The games are ported by Aspyr.

    (Well, now that I think about it, EA games makes the games, only for PC. Then Aspyr as the job of porting every thing over to Mac, so its kinda a combo.

    Coat of glitter is exactly it. The characters look worse (in my opinion) than The Sims 2! Looks like something I won't try. :rolleyes:

    I have the Complete Collection of Sims 1, which I still love. I haven't picked up Sims 2, mostly just because of cost, but maybe I'll get it if they do a bundle in the future with more expansion packs (I love the expansions). I'd almost like to see a new SimCity more than Sims 3, but that's just me.
