When you have played a game too much it kind of becomes boring. Do you know how I will make The Sims 2 fun to play again? Some cool challenges?

I really love this game since the first time I knew how to play the game. Actually, what I did to make it be more enjoyable is to create persons with different aspirations, different personality etc...I also built big houses, I'm fond of decorating each houses. Sometimes I change the design of my bedroom or living room so that I won't feel bored. Hope this help:)

You may also try to join group discussion in Yahoo! Groups. There are several group created for The Sims. They have several tips and other information you wanna try.

Yeah, me too sometimes I end up with the same designs, what only differs is the type of walls and tiles that I used. You may try visiting the Yahoo! Groups there are several groups about decorating Sims even their features.

I'm not really sure what to tell you because I hardly ever get bored with the game. When I do, I just don't play it for awhile and then try again another day. I have all the expansions so there is always something different to try. Right now my goal is to own all the other businesses. I'm trying to do it without cheating. I can't wait for the new expansion to come out. I think it comes out in February.

I read that it ships Feb 27. Can't wait! A great way to keep the game fun is to check out some of the challenges people have created on the sims2.com BBS!

thesimsresource.com has some downloadable challenges. Each challenge is a lot. A sim on the lot needs to acquire a set of memories stated in the challenge.

I just get bored in sims 2 is when I cant keep my relationship to my friends. I always end up losing the friend which is needed in my work so I can get promoted. But I just take this more challenging and it turns my boredom to strive more to keep up the relationship.

I also think it is hard when you have to have 10+friends because of the work. It is kind of challenging to keep it up. You dont get time for much other things. Thank you so much for answering. HAve a nice day :)

If you always make the character the same, or don't mix it up or your game doesn't have the other expansions you could make it pretty boring if your just doing dishes and cooking pizza. First of all which Sims 2. I find the PC version to be more fun cause you can download hairstyles, clothes and whatever you want that's been created by other internet users. Going on dates, having pets, making up stories...Seeing how many kids you can raise...are challenges. Have a few different family's to mix it up. Make schemes. Live a few generations through a sim family and see the genetic changes and money, and easy life passed down. Plus-Seasons expansion.There'd be new activites, weather, and more to experience including wearing the right clothes or experience the consequences .

I have tended to make the characte the same. I do not know why though. I will try som variety. Also I will try to find a place to download new things to the game. Do you have any links? Thank you so much for answering. Have a nice day :)

create challenges for yourself. and concentrate on 1 family first. for example, there was this 'asylum challenge'. the challenge needs 8 members, but you control only 1 sim. meaning you don't care about the others. you can only have the cheapest furnitures/items etc and you need to make everybody happy. and your 1 sim runs the asylum. no sim can go out of the house except your 1 sim. all items must be inside the house. only 3 sims are allowed to die. etc etc. that way you have a goal and sims 2 will never be boring. by the way, i can't wait for the new expansion pack!!!

Oops, I forgot to add- thesimsresource.com also has a set of challenges! You download the family for it from their site, and each one comes with a set of objectives like getting them a certain job, etc.

I have to recommend the Legacy challenge, too! I've been playing my Legacy family on and off for over a year now, and I am finally almost to the 10th generation! It's quite a bit different from how I normally play, so it has been a really fun challenge!
