The Sims 2, like its predecessor, does not have a defined final goal; gameplay is open-ended.
Sims have life goals, wants and fears, the fulfillment of which can produce both positive or negative outcomes.
) to fulfill your Sims’ destinies and make their wishes come true.
The Sims 3 is the third installment of The Sims franchise/series.
The Sims 3 also is the first game to feature an open-world concept: players are no longer limited to single lots; they are able to explore the world in between and travel to lots without loading screens.
The game compromises this by having much longer initial loading and saving screens.
Electronic Arts cites the reason for the delay was to "create awareness for The Sims 3". It shows something towards a continuous, panning neighborhood, diagonal placings for objects, better lighting systems, and the ability to change shoes in the CAS, an ability previously limited to only console versions of The Sims.
