Sims 5: What sort of multiplayer game play would you most like
I don't mind if there are some aspects that you can share. And I don't mind if there is an option to play with friends if you so choose. But if those of us who don't lose out in any way due to it, I will be looking into EA's newest competitors. Yeah, the days of Sims being THE SIMS is over thanks to Paralives, and others.
It's an exaggeration to say I'd run the other way if Sims 5 had any multi-player feature. But I know I wouldn't use the feature, so my interest in the game would depend entirely on how good the offline game is. I'm not that interested in 5 anyway, so it would have to be really good to get me. I like 4 and am pretty happy to just keep play that until I no longer can.
the sims 4 was built on an engine meant to be multiplayer and where did that get us? an unfinished game. no toddlers on release, updates that should've already been in the game (re: the first update ADDING ghosts and pools because they didn't exist), and a lot of bugs that plagued the game. i don't trust EA to fully flesh out a sims game on release because they're so used to dishing out half-done content and shafting the sims audience. if they don't fully commit to actually making a decent base game before its release, what's multiplayer going to look like? a buggy mess, like everything else.
i'd rather they spend all their braincells on the base game before considering adding a multiplayer component to it, or if they're so insistent on making a multiplayer game, making it a spin-off and not a main title.
