    Is anyone getting this?

    I played Sims 2 when it first came out...and I liked it enough. I haven't been keeping up with everything new about the 3rd one.

    It comes out tomorrow...around 50 dollars. Thought it might keep me entertained while I continue to try and find a job...

    I am scared to get this...it might suck up all of my free time! I love the Sims 2. I can't imagine how they could have improved it.

    Man, I remember being a kid when those Sims (sim city, sim town, sim hospital???) games FIRSTS came out. I used to love playing all of those sim games as they came out, but haven't played in years. I'm afraid to get sucked in again!

    I attempted to play the original Sims game long ago & just couldn't get into it.

    I used to love the Sims, but I'm afraid I would spend way too much time playing this (when I was into the Sims I was still in high school without my own computer, so there was a limit to how much I could play it). Also, right now I'm into Harvest Moon Cute on my DS, which takes about as long as I want to spend on video games per day.

    Not getting it until school is done. Then I will play for days on end!

    I plan to get it this afternoon. I can't wait to see how the graphics have changed. The difference between SIMS MD and SIMS 2 were huge so I'm excited to see the difference between 2 and 3. I guess this means I need to get this last bit of grading done before I leave school today.

    I loved Sims when it first came out and spent hours playing it, but my interested faded. I never really got into Sims 2. I would love to try Sims 3, but my notebook isn't fancy enough for it. Boo.

    I got it. I like it, but I think I'll fall in love with it over the summer. In some ways it's better than Sims 2 because you can follow the sims everywhere, but in others it's not as good. I don't think the graphics are as clean and they made it a little more difficult to scroll around. But I like the tool bar and they added new motivations and opportunities.
