The game loads and can be played for about 5 minutes until it closew and says that the sims 3 has stopped working. also, if i go to change any of the options, the whole game shuts down and he ame "stopped working" message comes up. I just got the seasons and really want to play it, however the new laptop i got isn't letting me. The new laptop has windows 8 and is a 64 bit thing or whatever. WHY WONT MY SIMS WORK?!
