    My Sims: Does this one count? I loved making furniture! I hated that there was not room for everyone to live in the town.

    Sims 2: I loved the Sims themselves and the quirky ways they behaved. I loved being able to build a trailer park that actually functioned. But CAS was limited and there was no multitasking.

    Sims Freeplay: I love the way it used to be when it was truly free play with some fun quests. The babies were the best! I hate the grindfest it became. I would still be playing otherwise.

    Sims 4: I love the way it looks. The occult Sims are awesome. The toddlers are adorable. But I want my trailer park back, and I hate the bugs.

    I would say

    Sims 1: Never played

    Sims 2 (limited playtime so can't fully judge)

    Pros: Whackiness, personality depth
    Cons: Closed world, no create a style, dated graphics, pretty similar to 3 but doesn't have the open world + create a style so I prefer 3

    Sims 3

    Pros: Open world, world landscapes are beautiful, in depth packs, create a style, whackiness
    Cons: Major and regular crashing issues, slow loading, ugly clothes and sims without cc, can't go between worlds without moving

    Sims 4

    Pros: Great items, looks good up close, fast loading and limited crashing, best version of occults, toddlers and restaurants in the franchise (with mods to fix Dine Out), Selvadorada and Sulani are beautiful
    Cons: It often feels like the target audience is eleven year old girls (despite the game being rated teen), packs are shallow and lack depth, lack of QA, still not a fan of the furry werewolves 😬
