For the past two days my laptop has been crashing when I play the sims, it's done this before (which wasn't a surprise or bother to me since it always does this), but it crashes even harder. It know wipes all the memory from my laptop and I have to re-install everything when I play that game. I love the Sims 3 so much that I'm willing to live with it this way, but it's already getting tiring to do this. It's never happened before (to crash so much that it's deleted from my laptop's memory) so I don't know whether it's me, the computer, or the game who is at fault. I'm not doing anything different (my sister has been playing it though - which is more time the game is used but I doubt that does anything), so what's up with this?

Tl;dr: my sims 3 games crashes and I have to re-install it.

I don't know...my laptop has a few viruses on it, so I thought it might be that. Or that it's overheating or something. If it's happening to you too, though, it could be an EA problem...

I prefer Ocarina of Time over the Sims so it isn't really "pointless and dumb" to me.

It's the game...

It's made by EA they have a record for buggy ass games also well known for their levels of disdain for the customer.

I bought my mother a pretty decent rig for her birthday/ Christmas; 8gigs of ram, 3.6ish quad core processor with a decent video card and she still finds it crashes a bit.

I'll reiterate, it's the game.

I realize it didn't make sense, but when it crashes the game is still there and doesn't shut off my laptop. When it "crashes harder" it wipes the memory off of my laptop completely. I explained it in the post...or at least I thought I did.

I haven't played any Sim games in years. All I remember is that you do feel like a god damn god when you fuck around with their lives.

I thought it was only my old computer. We installed Windows in it and it needed a new video card.

In my new computer it works great. Maybe change your video card? :shrug:

Maybe you should stop drowning them and setting them on fire. :iconteheplz:

Oh wait, that's me. I swear, I try to play the game normally every once in a while, but I end up just rosebudding and torturing my sims... :stare:

Oh, the art of torturing sims and ruining their lives. :lmao:

I do that when I get bored of letting them have a normal life, as well. It adds more fun to the game. and something tells me maybe it shouldn't. :stare:
