If you have a pulse then you know about The Sims - it's the awesome PC video game from Electronic Arts that lets you make your own family of virtual people and lead them through life, work, relationships and more. Well, EA's latest version, The Sims 2, just went gold - which means it's finished and is shipping to stores near you right now! Check out what this new game can do and when you'll be able to get your own copy.

EA's The Sims 2 Virtual People Game Features

Just like in the original The Sims PC game you can make your sim-family, design their appearance, their attitude and even their home. Now, The Sims 2 takes it a few steps further with these new options:
  • Sim DNA - Your Sims can have kids and the kids will get a mix of their parents' attitude and looks.
  • Life Goals - Give your Sim a goal in life - fame, fortune, family or something else. Each goal changes the way your Sim behaves.
  • Sim Movies - Set up a play, turn on the Sim camera and make movie magic! Once an update to The Sims: Makin' Magic comes out, you may even be able to film a Sim Harry Potter movie.
    These options also come with a way more detailed set of game graphics that'll let you zoom right in on your Sims for incredible detail. Plus, there will be more job, home and fashion options than ever!
