OMG! So, I was meandering around a local thrift store with my mom when I spotted a familiar gold box on the counter. It was The Sims Double Deluxe. I was like a deer caught in the headlights. I looked it over, pulled out the discs and inspected them, and got all giddy. So then I started rifling through the video game drawers out of curiosity, trying to see if I could find any of the expansions, and I damn sure did!
The only expansions I couldn’t find were my two favorites: Makin’ Magic and Vacation. It kind of sucks, but you never know, I may find them one day. In the meantime, I got Double Deluxe (which has the base game, Livin’ Large, and House Party), Hot Date, Unleashed, and Superstar for a WHOPPING $3.80. No. Shit.
So when I got home, they all installed just fine, but I did find the crack to be able to get the game to run on Windows 10. The game fired right up and I was so excited! And man, did it bring back some nostalgia! I had forgotten just how basic everything was. The CAS, the build and buy modes, the game play, the graphic options (can play in either 800×600 or 1024×768 – Oh hell.) What I really found amusing was when I was installing, a window popped up that said the space required is 64MB…….WUT. Then it had the nerve to tell me I didn’t have enough space (LOL). Then the whole “would you like to install AOL 7.0?” Quick question, does AOL still exist in any form? I don’t even know anymore.
Man, it just brought back so many memories. I got on and played for 10 minutes before I had to take care of a bunch of stuff, but I’m hoping to get some playtime in pretty soon, maybe even a little tonight. I am so happy I found this! This is gonna be fun! 😀
