But then I saw the first screenshots from TS3, and... no. Just no. I don't care how complex the Sims' personalities are in TS3, I absolutely cannot stand how they look (I know, I know, I'm shallow )! Yes, I know there are custom sliders and default replacement skins and special makeup and whatnot you can use to get away from the "puddingface", but I honestly don't think I should have to use CC just to get my Sims to look remotely decent. Besides, I like TS2.
So I've never played TS3, and I doubt I ever will - unless I get it for free with a new computer or something like that, because I'm certainly not paying any extra for it!
