Sims 2 is still free (if you have a code from at least one game/expansion)

Okay, so I heard a rumor that you could still get the Sims 2 for free. The catch is, you have to prove that you own the game.

You'll need an EA Origins Acct.

Contact EA Customer service. Let them know that you heard you could get the game for free if you own it. They will ask you for the access code from one of the games (usually on the back of the manual). They will add the Ultimate Collection (Game and all the expansion and patches) to your Origin Acct for free.

It doesn't matter if you didn't own all the expansions, they give you everything.

Also, right now Plants vs Zombies is free on Origins. It's the complete game. Every now and again, they put up games and you can grab them for free. I was able to grab Dragon Age II for free (I owned the game but my youngest scratched my disc so that was a win).

Anyway, I know most people here play Sims 4 but I thought I would let everyone know about it.

That is long past May..yes they were giving out "The Ultimate Collection" over a year ago..I wonder if they are doing it again..but I don't think so..

I have several of the other free games..but don't play them either..

I have a feeling that sooner or later they may do that with Sims3 and Sims4..just not sure..

That is what I am playing now..because my disks/digital Sims2 won't work anymore..and they have taken them ALL out of my Origin account..this is a very sore subject for me..

I got the Ultimate Collection for a backup for when my disks broke..now I have to play it all the time..

I have no respect for EA/Origin..I just love my Sims2



Thank you so much Crissi, it's beautiful

I got Sims 2 Ultimate Collection this morning from EA. So as long as you have a code, you should be able to get it. (For those that don't have it) I have all the discs but I play with a cracked .exe so I don't need a disc. I just fire it up.

I had everything before. I religiously got all the stuff and expansion packs. I got the store stuff free online though. It was why I was so disappointed when Apartment Life came out and they hadn't done a proper magic expansion. I was expecting a lot since Makin' Magic was so awesome.

That is good news. I have all the games too but it would be good to have an online backup. But if they remove them from our accounts then what's the point of them giving them to us in the first place? I play with a crack too so I don't need to use the disks.

I spent around $200 to get everything..and now I have disks that won't work..and none of the digitals that I paid for..it took me 4 years to get everything..

I don't know what is going on..I have seen other people still playing their disks..but all of mine were registered..and now I can't play them..

I have seriously thought of writing a letter to EA/Origin to the CEO and complaining..but still haven't done it yet..

I haven't reloaded my game in years. I never signed on after I loaded them until I got the cracked exe in place to prevent Securom from loading. I don't know if I would have problems with them now or not. I'm going to see if there is a way to get the digital copy off Origin somehow and make a backup on my external drive. They will pull the Sims 2 and Skyrim out of my cold, dead hands.
