Sorry this took so long, I was tagged by: loeilestdieu, misstiikeri and anitka-sims thank you all :>
1. When did you start playing the Sims 2?
Back when it first came out, the sims 2 was the first sims game I ever played. I discovered cc pretty early on, and joined a Brazilian forum where I actually made some good friends and had a great time, there were a lot of fun challenges and the people were super nice. Oddly enough I ended up being good friends with another Portuguese guy, then we lost touch for a while and when we reconnected again, we were both gay and pretty much into the same things as each other even though we hadn’t talked in years and didn’t have much in common back then besides ts2. I don’t know why but that always struck me as very serendipitous. I didn’t get involved with the english speaking community until 2008/09 and even then I mostly lurked, until I made my simblr in 2012 I think.
2. What did you like most about the Sims 2?
I like CAS, and alien abduction, I always found it awesome for some reason.I don’t play much these days, I mostly make sims and take screenshots, but I loved playing the game and remember having a lot of fun. I still play occasionally but not for the long stretches of time I used to.
3. What did you spend most of your time doing in the Sims 2?
Believe it or not, when I first started out playing I was really into making lots, a lot more than making sims actually. They were the first cc I ever shared, they were all modern, minimalist monstrosities with lots of glass and those godawful shiny floors, but people actually seemed to like them. Now I mostly make sims, I’m way too lazy to get into making lots again, mostly because I don’t like modern architecture anymore, and the kind of grungy clutter-filled lots I do like take ages to decorate.
4. One thing you won’t forget about the Sims 2?
All the fun I had, no matter what I chose to do, I always had fun playing the game.
5. One thing that annoyed you the most in the Sims 2?
The loading screens, even now that I have a good laptop and they don’t take nearly as long to load as they used to they still bother me.
6. How has the Sims 2 impacted your life?
In all kinds of ways actually, I think it was the first time I looked at computers as something I could thinker with, it made me a lot more internet-savvy, I got really into image editing, although that was partly due to playing text-based rpgs too, and overall I met some great people. And even though I don’t talk to some of them as often, or at all, they played a crucial role in my life at one point and I’m grateful for that.
7. Will you be playing the Sims 2/3 after the release of the Sims 4?
I’m actually not sure I’ll play the sims 4 to begin with, I guess we’ll see once there’s more cc available. I have no plans to stop playing ts2 whatsoever, tho.
