Winter!: Prepare for holiday gaming!
I have all of the Sims 3 expansion packs and I've played the Sims since Sims 1. Although there are certainly some things I would like added to or changed about the game, for the most part I love the Sims 3 and think it is the best of the series, though I know there are many who would disagree.
I love the openness of the sims world, which is a brand new concept for them. I was so tired of the loading screens popping up anytime my sim left their house, because with all the expansions/stuff packs and downloaded content it would take forever for each screen to load. But now, with the Sims 3, I only have to wait one time at the beginning of the day.
I also love the customization, which has improved so very much. The sims themselves are far more realistic, while still retaining their cartoonish aspect, which is partly for which they were known. Also the fact that you can customize your walls, floors, ceilings and every object with pretty much any pattern or color imaginable is rather amazing.
I enjoy the silliness of it sometimes, but most of all I love how the game is so relaxing. I play this game when I don't feel like being challenged much, or don't want any real goals except writing a story with the game.
I can't wait for the Supernatural expansion pack!
