Recently, I've been playing a lot of TS2 and enjoying the nostalgia
and it's got me thinking about the 'Wants' & 'Fears' feature.
Back when the game first came out I very rarely listened to what my Sims actually wanted and played however I wanted to. I found the 'Wants' & 'Fears' super annoying and getting in the way of how I wanted their lives to go. As I'm sure you can imagine, my sims were pretty grumpy. This time around, (fast forward 10 years) I've been letting my Sims decide what we do and I've noticed it's a lot easier to play when they're happy (duh). The only thing I've ignored so far is the want to have 10 children. No thanks, I value my sanity!
So I thought I'd pose the question to the community, Do you let 'Wants' & 'Fears' dictate your gameplay?
