I really do like Generations a lot. The nightlife ex pack was good but i'm not really into the night scene myself so didn't totally love it. The vampires were ok to play but not to great. They do build skills a ton faster than a regular sim but (as with the vampires on sims2) it's hard to have a really good social life when all the other sims sleep during the day and the phone interaction(invite over) doesn't let you invite people late at night. Can't remember if there was another x pack or not. I am currently running ambitions and generations and the car stuff pack. Maybe one other but i'm drawing a blank. haha.

I was considering buying Medieval, but now I think I should invest that money into some more EP's for Sims 3 the only EP's I have at the moment are Ambitions and World Adventure. (I usually wait until they go on sale).

They did do an online update of Medieval that added more options..with freeplay, etc. But, none of the things you work on with your hero during freeplay count unless the update changed that. I forget now whether it did or not. But, yeah, I enjoy sims3 a ton more.

I agree with you DomesticDiva - I bought the Sims Medieval as soon as it came out, but sadly, it was not worth it. There just isn't as much freedom in Medieval as there is with the regular Sims game. I played it for maybe a month, then soon started to lose interest after that. I don't like the fact that you play quests in the same exact area - you can't change environments or locations at all. You can't even change how the buildings look. Makes it very easy to get bored with quickly. I almost feel like they released the game before it was really ready - there were so many glitches in the game. I purchased Generations last week, and so far love it.

I always buy the games when they first come out. I can't resist once I start seeing clips and other people talking about the new things. I didn't love sims medieval. I played it from the time it came out until about 3 weeks ago, maybe. But, I just don't love it. I like sims3 more. I bought generations also and LOVE that!

Ok, so I just pre-ordered the Sims Medieval...yeah I'm a sucker for the advertisements Lol So in 6 days I'll be chopping heads, casting spells or whatever else they did in those times. I may need the whole week of work to really focus on this. Lol I'll give you guys a review once I've had a chance to sink my teeth into it.

I've not really been into sims 3. I did buy the Ambitions EP the other day because it was on sale at target. But THEN I saw the clip for Medieval. I think I'm much more interested in it. It's not just the regular sims in Medieval clothing. Some of the game play looks promising.

I never tend to buy the games when they first come out though. So it might be a while before I pick it up.

I did peek at a few of the screen shots and had a good laugh at the female executioner - she just looks too wimpy to be able to chop someones head off in a single blow.

I'm looking forward to it - reminds me of a Sims version of WoW. Lol Will be a nice change of pace from the regular Sims games I've played.
