Why do people like Sims 2? I think it's boring.
Well, we all wish to live in a fantasy life at one point or the other. In sims, you can build a house, get a real job, interact with individuals without the negative side-effercts, and many other things.
Of course, I think it's completely pointless. If you're going to fantacize, do something exciting with your alter-ego. Many an RPG come to mind.
It is a way for people to live out the live they wish they have or want to have in a world where whatever you do has no lasting consequences... you can always start from your last point saved.
sims has always been interesting but games like fable are replacing them in the genre
