The Sims 2 DS had a crazy story where you were managing a hotel with some zany guests, aliens invading, and you could become a superhero rat.
The Urbz sims you were an urban sim that featured a lot of alternative clothing and lifestyles, and your job was to fufill their rep and gain access to exclusive groups and cliques.
The Sims 1 gamecube had a storyline where you earn money and continually move out of houses with roommates with different stories and objectives until you reach a mansion.
There is also My Sims where you are a (mayor i think on wii? In DS you are a normal citizen) Upgrading the town.
Why dont the sims team have anything like this with Sims 4? Or perhaps I do and I dont know? Those games were really funny. If Sims 4 had something like this id be interested in it.
