Guess whose sad, pathetic self will need a visit from the Social Bunny?

Merry Christmas, Internet. Long time no see.

I got The Sims 2 for Christmas. Isidore has been otherwise occupied and not able to play with you folks. We'll be back... eventually.

How does it compare to the first? I've resisted temptation to buy it because I know that I probably won't get anything done with it around. In fact, I eBayed all of my Sims expansion packs and the first Sims right before I came to grad school.

I could see that as being pretty addictive for me. With the first Sims, you got to a point where their skills were so maxed out that it really wasn't all that challenging to get them to switch to different jobs and move up the career ladder.

Do they still have an information professional?

Srah! You should have waited. I am almost getting sick of mine (as you mentioned it might be possible to do). I was theeeees close to sending it to you for Christmas. Ah well.

After you play it enough, you realize it's all just the same. However, it's something to do if you need some lovin'...
