I bought the teen style stuff and not knowing you had to have the base game, it wouldnt let me play it, but that was quite a while ago so I can't say what it was telling me, basicaly you can't play the sims 2 pc without the base game, you can keep trying to install it but it wont work, if you want to buy the base game off ebay or somewhere make sure it is brand new, because if you want to register it to the sims 2 website it will tell you that it is invalid if it has already been registered, a few of my expantion packs wont work because I bought them second hand.

Summary:
- buy the base game if you want to play.
- buy a new one if you want to register.


Hope I helped xx
