A little bit about me:
I've been playing this series for a very long time, since 2000. I was a great fan of the first two games, and I bought TS3 the day it came out (making a two hour round trip for the collectors edition, haha), but somehow I never got into it as much. I missed a lot of the things from TS2, I didn't really like the way the Sims themselves looked, and I had a lot of glitches and weirdness in the unpatched base TS3. Plus, I was busy with college, and I started playing another game... I still had TS3 installed on my computer, but I didn't play it very often.
When Pets came out, I started to play more often. A few months after that, Best Buy ran a buy one get one free sale, so I bought all of the expansions, and since then I've been playing a whole lot more. I really, really enjoy this game, and I even like how the Sims look now. But I still haven't done a lot of things in the game, and I find myself Googling a lot. Often it brings me to this site, and so I decided to go ahead and register.
