    Well obviously it *could* be better, but it could also be worse. It all depends on the direction, but judging on the games current trajectory I'm not expecting anything groundbreaking. As long as EA is still in the picture it's always going to be a desperate cash grab with bare minimum content and every corner cut

    ...it had a real mix of OP's ideas.

    Open World, World editing or CAW, Memories, Chemistry / Attraction and in-depth Personalities, Parody and Humour.

    However, most importantly, a base game that includes a significant amount of content such as Seasons with weather, all current life stages, workplaces (GTW), University and Pets!

    I know how desperate EA are to make as much money as possible but are 9 Expansion Packs, 8 Game Packs and 17(!!!) Stuff Packs absolutely necessary? TS3 only had 9 SP...

    Personally, I would pay more for a fully fleshed out base game, than I am willing to fund all the ridiculous number of SP!

    The Sims 5 could be better if the designers were obliged to play sims 2 and then sims 4. I have many doubts that they actually play the game. I did not lost hope for sims 5 tho :/

    "The Sims 5 could be better, if they allow some expansion features in the base game

    The Sims 5 could be better if they add open world, color wheel, CAW, (sims 3 ideas)

    The Sims 5 could be better if they add better personalities, memory system, story album, chemistry/romantic system (sims 2 ideas)"

    And then some, but those are the basics. Maybe some of the other poll options, but they're not necessarily as important.

    And I don't even mean NECESSARILY robust EP features, but basic seasons and basic college, so things fit in with the game better when released and so we never have to see doctors without degrees again! They should think ahead so EPs aren't released with messes, like premades who aren't prepared for seasonal clothes, etc.

    And planning a multiplayer game will PROBABLY wreck things, probably.

    One more thing: proper cars with PROPER parking lots. I want parking lots required, either each lot has its own parking available or a few lots can share one parking lot, and this will be a standard set for the base game by devs, with PLENTY of space. (Or sims might have to walk for a while, or sneak parking somewhere... but the worlds will be made with ample parking in mind and base lots prepared for us.) Plus TS2-style animations for cars. No pocket cars!!! No mortals teleporting!

    The Sims 4 is already perfect for me. Id like them to continue for many more years adding more expansions
    I actually have high doubts that Sims 5 would be any better. Graphically I see nothing they could improve. On gameplay aspect there could be improvements, but I sincerely doubt they have the guts to make them. I would want the better personalities, memory system etc. but also way more random weird/bad stuff happening.

    There is always the potential to be better. If EA learns from its mistakes gives the devs the time they need to do what they must to create a great game playtest it find the bugs and problems before it goes into beta stage. Allows the Game Changers to give negative feedback and really listen to the negative feedback. Push back the release date to a later date if needed to improve and solve any issues that arrive and look at what made The Sims, Sims 2 and Sims 3 great games that were amazing without mods and CC and look at what is good in Sims 4 Building and CAS and improve CAS and Build Mode, even more, making it a step further with things like vaulted ceilings muli-heights for a single level. For an example in build mode have the entryway with a vaulted ceiling that leads to a medium level sunken living room in the centre of the first floor with an open-concept kitchen dining room with plenty of area for sims to entertain guests. Have a reasonable scale. to transfer blueprints we find online to the sims. I build a lot in the sims. In fact, it's what I do first when I start a new game. I build up each of the worlds how I want. Then look at the premades I want to keep in the game I'm going to play delete all the celebrities except for Judith Ward (I love Judith she is a word I cannot use here but that is what makes her so much fun.) I would love to be able to do things like a sunken living room with a half wall in Sims 4 but I think I am asking for too much in build mode. I would love to have platforms back to put a bed or bathtub on as we had in Sims 3. I would love to be able to build ponds as we could in Sims 3. I can build and do some sweet landscaping in Sims 3 I am horrible at terrain and landscaping in Sims 4. But I can build it just won't pop that's all. I want to be able to do nice landscaping in Sims 5. I want wall heights but be able to add texture and "paint" ceiling in sims 5 without the use of mods. We need round turrets and rounded corners/walls. We need round/oval pool options. We need colour wheels and the ability to "create" a material again. Hello, Black Pearl Granite for the countertops in a build without using CC.

    Cathedral Ceiling

    The potential really is there. We can sort of do Cathedral Ceilings now and not exactly vaulted ceilings. The difference between a Cathedral Ceiling and a vaulted Ceiling is that a Cathedral Ceiling always follows the pitch of the roof, A vaulted ceiling does not. My grandma was big into architecture. She taught me a lot.

    The potential is there for the devs to do these things. It really is. Whether they want to tap in and bring us an amazing game is hopefully what we'll get.

    You will never learn.After Eco Living it's clear that if another version of the Sims comes out it's going to be a mess plus they may suck up to the multiplayer like they did in Fallout. If EA does proper testing and goes back to it's roots of families and story telling then there might be hope.

    The thing with multi-players it allows them to create buyable downloadable content that could be for a limited time or something like the buyable loot boxes they got into trouble with a while back. It's more profitable for them that way. Unlike Rockstar that puts out GTA and does it well. Every time they (EA in the Sims) went the multi-player route in the past it really wasn't welcomed in the community if memory serves me correctly. My husband plays GTA and sometimes I play with him.

    EA needs to fire their CEO give developers the time they need to develop games and listen to their fan base. Their fanbase is who essentially pays their salaries when all is said and done. We all want good storytelling. We all want substance.

    Better throw three in there too. We're not willing to be tossed out in the dustpile this time around.

    The Sims 5 would be better if the person holding the pursestrings allotted more money and time for gameplay mechanics, depth, and replayability, and stopped worrying so much about marketing. If the game is good, people will hear about it. The best part is that word-of-mouth is free. Simply concentrate on building the best Sims game ever that marries some of the most beloved features from the franchise and it can't lose.

    Also, please stop trying to create a game that can run on an old Texas Instruments calculator.
