I can well remember the first time I played The Sims. It was such a different way of gaming that I fell in love with it almost immediately. There was just something so fun about watching little Sims live life out for me on my computer screen. I loved feeding them, getting them jobs, upgrading their houses, and just about everything else that went along with it. One thing was for sure, though – you couldn’t play for long without another expansion pack coming out that you just had to have. Unfortunately for me, my old computer wasn’t powerful enough to handle all of the expansion packs, so I was stuck with the original version of The Sims – but I didn’t complain. Like I said, I loved that game.

And now I have some very good news for all you gamers out there who also love The Sims games. From now until 7/31/14, you can download The Sims 2 Ultimate Collection completely free (and completely legal). This collection includes the original game plus all of the expansion packs which were released. All in all, you’ll get 18 extra add-ons for the game. And as we all know, you can’t beat free.
