Yesterday, I bought a copy of The Sim's, with the Livin' Large expansion (Livin' it Up in Europe). What I think about it? That my kids seem to be pretty involved! They are both in front of the computer, discussing in quiet harmony, and I don't expect to have time/opportunity to test it out before their characters are quite established.
For myself, I am looking for Baldur's Gate II, which is not easy to find for PCs. But I'll keep looking. And it has to be the "Shadows of Amn" version, not the "Throne of Baal" expansion.
