Sims 2 Players, Tell Us What You Think!

The team at Maxis is constantly focused on making the best, most entertaining games for their fans. Every once in a while, we hold focus groups to give players a chance to provide feedback on the games we are creating. We'll be holding these groups in the San Francisco Bay Area on August 23rd and will be selecting people to participate in the discussions.

A couple of weeks ago Maxis asked the US fans what they wanted to see in the new expansion...

...They suggested a couple of ideas, which people could talk about.

Which expansion would you like best? Join the discussion on the forums and vote on our poll.

The 5 suggestions Maxis made can be found here.

Each one of you probably has their own unique and special story... and we want to hear it. This is your chance to share your Sims biography with Maxis as we endeavor to create a collage of The Sims 2 player biographies.
