i bet if it wasn't pirated so much this game would probably be over 2 million right now

I tried the Sims once and couldn't be more uninterested.

Ya really. Boring as all hell but outsells most AAA games released this year. On PC/Mac nonetheless. That's something I won't understand for awhile

I actually think it's really fun. It's a nice change of pace from blowing up dudes in shooters and RTS's.

It's very impressive, especially when you know how much that game can have been downloaded illegally.

I'm not sure the crowd that plays that game downloads that many things illegally. Everyone I know that plays it has pretty good jobs and only use their computers for work otherwise.

I was one of those 1.4 million. Solid sequel. My only little frustration is the parts that were obviously held back for an expansion, like pets, but it is still a ton of content.

Yeah, I agree. I'm enjoying the game a lot, but I'm disappointed with the lack of items that, to me, were staples of the series (pool tables, hot tubs [wtftwftwftwf], pianos, etc). I really hope they don't try and sell them to me via microtransactions. :(
