Which game is the better one (with annoying faults taken into consideration)? Obviously in Sims 3 is a better game, but is it really worth having to wait 5 mins for the neighbourhood to load up every time? And you can't see what your sim(s) is/are doing at work or in other buildings, so that's a piece of shit worth considering.
And you can't even make new neighbourhoods (or can you?). And it looks way more cartoony...
On the other hand, the furniture and stuff on Sims 2 is pretty basic without the expansion packs, and you can't arrange stuff diagonally which pisses me off. And it takes less time to explore every possibility of it and get bored of it. However, you can choose bigger lots and therefore make bigger houses than on Sims 3. At least, I think you can.
