But the entire sims franchise has always had a little quirkiness from the start lol. I don’t think it was ever meant to be taken too seriously. The way they dance, the way they fight (TS2) ...even the way the robbers used to come in the house...it’s goofy...but I like it lol

The Sims is not the mechanism for doing that.

I would not say it is too childish, but they are playing it safe to keep it rated Teen. I do allow my kids to play it, but they also play other games. I do have certain mods on my laptop that are not allowed on the family desktop, where they play. EA has always been about making more money, and not about pleasing the customer. At least that is the impression given off over the last 5+ years.

I mean, I personally think they could get a bit darker without violating their rating code, but I understand why they don't. And honestly it's easier to take the game darker than intended than take a dark game and lighten it up without going to parody levels of melodrama.

Just watched an official Sims 2 trailer that contains: Sexual kinks, polyamory, homosexuality, heavily hinted at threesomes, 🌺🌺🌺🌺 probing jokes NOT connected to homosexality and more. And again, that was an official trailer.
Kids game indeed.

The players who’ve grown up with the franchise & continue to play seem to have been forgotten about. We want messy storylines, drama, personality, DEPTH.

I'm 51, and not bored. The depth is there if you make it. It's a sandbox. My Sims still surprise and delight me. TS4 families seem genuinely close across multiple generations, if you let them be. Or you can have dysfunctional train-wrecks who relate poorly if at all.
It's what you make it.
