i like playing the sims. i currently have the complete collection for sims 1. the only reason i haven't upgraded to 2 or 3 is because i love the makin' magic expansion pack, and for the life of me, can't figure out if 2 or 3 have the same properties, etc.
that being said, i do find myself wanting to upgrade, even if 2&3 don't have the MM properties. i'm also on a limited budget and can't afford 35765943541357468464 different expansion packs.
which brings us to my problem.
which game will give me more bang for my buck?
Other (and i'll explain in the comments)
EDIT: apparently wikipedia is your friend, and that i am an idiot. just looked up sims on there and it has a huge explanation on what's in each expansion pack. *facepalm*
