    Geez, how many expansions are they going to release for this game? My sister loves this game so I keep getting the expansion for her but this is just getting out of hand.

    The Sims 2 [4 CDs]
    The Sims 2: University (Expansion Pack) [2 CDs]
    The Sims 2: Nightlife (Expansion Pack) [2 CDs]
    The Sims 2: Open For Business (Expansion Pack) [1 CD]
    The Sims 2: Pets (Expansion Pack) [1 CD]
    The Sims 2: Seasons (Expansion Pack) [1 DVD]
    The Sims 2: Bon Voyage (Expansion Pack) [1 DVD]
    The Sims 2: Family Fun Stuff (Add-On Pack) [1 CD]
    The Sims 2: Glamour Life Stuff (Add-On Pack) [1 CD]
    The Sims 2: Happy Holiday Stuff (Add-On Pack) [1 CD]
    The Sims 2: Celebration Stuff (Add-On Pack) [1 CD]
    The Sims 2: H&M Fashion Stuff (Add-On Pack) [1 CD]

    GRAND TOTAL: 2 DVDs and 15 CDs [​IMG]

    And they just recently start doing this story/task driven series:

    The Sims: Life Stories [1 DVD]
    The Sims: Pet Stories [1 DVD]

    I sure hope I never have to wipe the harddrive and do a fresh install of Windows. I do NOT want to install all of this at once.

    Anyone else have to deal with all these expansions?

    There are A LOT of expansions. and it gets even more crazy if you have a lot of custom content! and there's plenty more full expansions on the way... just take a look at the sims 1!

    a dedicated sims pc that loads straight to the sims would be my idea of heaven =D im totally in love with the sims hehe. i installed all but bon voyage (wasnt out then) on my sisters PC and it didn't take too long but yeah at one point i had like 20 gigs of sims 2 stuff and the game would just lag sooo much. actually even without custom content its lagging like hell at the moment, soooo need to update, stupid g force fx5200 pos!

    oh yeah you call that lag? I ran SIMS 1 on a 4mb videocard, pentium 1 133mhz and like 8mb of memory. Now that was lag
