So call me a very very late bloomer, but I just got into this game, and I am addicted. I'm playing the basic version right now, I have yet to install the expansions though.
I had made a pair of roomies named after me and my guy (same zodiac signs...appearances etc etc) and I just got them to fall in love. I feel so accomplished and God-like for some reason.
Anyway, I'm sure most of you have been playing this game for years already, but I'm glad I got into this now. My 2nd session summer class was cancelled so now I have a ton of time on my hands to spare either reading or playing games.
