Why doesn't Sims 2 work on Windows 8?

★★★★ Novice

I know that Sims 2 doesn't work on Windows 8, but my question is why? Is EA lazy and can't fix it? I have at least $140 worth of Sims 2 games/expansions/packs, and I got my new computer with Windows 8, excited to see if I could download it, and failed. This is honestly frustrating me and cannot find one simple way to fix this on my computer. People have different ways but I'm not seeing a commonality.


Please help me fix this, or help me pester EA until they realize that tons of people enjoy the Sims 2 more than any later versions of the game.

They would get a lot of good feedback and a lot less people would be complaining about this issue.
