Well the specific one who loves me (Thad) bought me the game last week!! So much for my practice in self-restraint and my goal to manage my time a little bit better, because this game is awesome! The graphics are awesome. The customization is AMAZING (particularly because my favorite part of the game is making and decorating the houses)!!!
Right now I am so very much anticipating a new expansion pack (it shouldn't be long) to make the game even better, as well as the rest of The Sims Community to start making new custom content (ie: new clothes and furniture options),
I am such a dork. But, buy the game because it is incredible.
