I just noticed all Sims 2 stuff are gone from Origin

When did this happen? Is there any other place to buy them digitally? Or even physically. Amazon prices have inflated:

Nope, which is a shame. Yeah, EA wants you to buy Sims 3 and then Sims 4, but why just kill of classics? Shame the only way to get the game is to use alternate means.

If by alternate means you mean stuff like this:
http://www.amazon.com/The-Sims-2-Pc/dp/B00009WNZA

Yeah... the prices they're asking for a new copy are insane ($40+ for a game from 2004?)

Especially stupid considering this is available:
http://www.amazon.com/The-Sims-Deluxe-Nightlife-Expansion-Pc/dp/B000O5DY0E
for $20 (which in my opinion is still a lot of money for a game from almost 10 years ago).

At least in that case you're getting the game + the nightlife expansion at the same time (I'm guessing that sold for at least $20 new)

EA loves to kill classics and force you to buy the newer versions, they shut down servers of games once a sequel comes out. And that is why i hate EA.

Sequels aren't always better.

Whether objectively or subjectively.
