Grumpy Gamer – Free games are cool #2

So everyone loves a free game..

Well I’ve found another. Some of you may be interested, and some of you will laugh but here it is.

the_sims_2_logoEA (yes that EA) are offering up The Sims 2 Ultimate Edition for free. That includes the expansions:

  • University
  • Nightlife
  • Open For Business
  • Pets
  • Seasons
  • Bon Voyage
  • Free Time
  • Apartment Life

Now they could be doing this for a number of reasons. It could be that someone in Maxis has developed a heart of gold and persuaded EA to release it to the public. It could be to draw in older players  and drum up interest for The Sims 4 which is out 5th September, or perhaps to get them hooked and onto The Sims 3 (if their computer cant handle 4 perhaps).

Whatever the reason, its free so how do you get it…

Firstly (and probably the kicker) you have to have Origin installed.  Once you’re logged in and have Origin running, head up to ‘Redeem Product Code’ and enter I-LOVE-THE-SIMS . Once you have done that, the game is yours and you can begin your relentless torture of Sims by thinking of ingenious ways to kill them (What do you mean there are other ways to play the game?!?)
