hi, I recently just bought the game the sims 2 for my PC. but I put the game disc in the computer and it won't let me play. Is there something I need to download before I start playing the game or can I not play the game at all because the game is old and the computer has windows 10?
The Sims 2 discs use a security feature called SecuROM, which is no compatible with Windows 10. If you want to play The Sims 2 in Windows 10, you need the Origin version. You might be able to get it if you contact with an EA Advisor, providing your The Sims 2 serial code they might add The Sims 2 Ultimate Collection to your account

@melker_sims Unfortunately that is true. Sims 2 was retired from Origin October 2018. If you have your original disks you and a disk drive you can install and play the game. Please start a new thread and give us as details as to what exactly you have done to install the game and what is happening.
@melker_sims There is a thread made on The Official Sims Forum to petition to have Sims 1 & 2 on Origin:
Did you sort this there was a thread that i read you needed to overwrite some of the files i need to find it and save but it is possible
