Sims 5 sounding worse everyday 😑



Honestly I never had much hope in ts5 because the direction of games are changing😬. The old gaming days are never coming back.
But still I'm a bit dissapointed to see where it's going.
Zombies, oh please oh please give us zombies!! :'(

    They are sharing, they could create marketplaces.

    What we arm them with and the capabilities and frameworks we arm them with and where they take that I think it’s going to be a pretty significant surprise and a pretty exciting time for us as we bring these tools and platforms to market.


    If I parse that correctly, they noticed how much money is in cc and want to secure themselves a slice of that cake by providing an official platform where creators can offer their mods to players directly in game. That would probably help enforce the "x weeks payed early access, then free for everyone" policy (which is a good one), but on the other hand it also means they can curate what mods and cc we have access to. One of my favorite pieces is a bike turned into a hose, but it has clipping issues, so EA most likely wouldn't greenlight it. The Landgraabs would also have to kiss goodbye their love lounge and the fall/winter mods I keep current for private use would go out of the shop the moment an official Seasons EP launches. Not ideal for the end user.

    If it’s fully multiplayer without that being optional I will bow out of this game at TS4. I will just mod the buh cheeses out of it and load it with cc and play it until I either die or my computer does :D . I have seen how people treat each other in Animal Crossing, trashing islands and configuring game items to call people nasty names and the like. No thanks. Also I do not want to engage in flirty interactions via my sims with someone as a 49 year old adult and find out that the other person is like 13 :s . I just do not see how this can work. I like my solitary experience in The Sims. Also what happens to mod & cc creators. Do they close the game to those? Because you can’t feasibly play with someone else who doesn’t have the same mods or cc you do. Plus there is the whole unmentionable mod situation that opens up all kinds of disturbing possibilities. Ugh, no, no, no, no, no!!!

    O.M.G. That is so disturbing. Romance will be out of the question for me... EA think this through please.

    Ugh :( , I don’t want to be dictated to as to what mods I can and cannot have in my game. It’s really sounds like TS4 is the end of the road for me. I don’t want people trashing my lots, I don’t want to interact with minors online, it all just sounds bleeping awful.

    Exactly. The beauty of the sims is the freedom to play how you please. I don't even use crazy mods but I would feel really weird about EA policing every single thing I put in my game. And don't get me started on my past online gaming experience where other people are in your game 😵😵😵 I just wanna be left alone in the sims lol
    It's too much money in it though. I don't think anything we say could stop whatever direction they are going.🙄

    No, they’re going to do what they’re going to do, and I am too. I am probably just going to keep play TS4 until it’s wheels fall off.

    Everytime multiplayer is talked about in the community almost everyone says that they would not want that and would stick to whatever iteration they're playing now (me included). It's weird if ea don't listen to that and make a multiplayer anyway... i honestly didn't thought about multiplayer when i read that... i thought the platforms and social talk was related to something like the gallery, maybe a bit more improved, with more features. I will be really surprised if they come up with a multiplayer sims 5. Such a disconnection with their players...

    Considering that the Gallery is down every weekend I can imagine the technical disaster a full online Sims game would be. Maintenance every 10 minutes.

    I'd probably just get base game to goof around on, but if it really is fully multi-player only, I won't be buying any DLC for Sims 5. I'll just keep on playing 3 and 4 mostly.

    I'm asking out of curiosity do petitions actually do anything? Because I see a lot of them on Twitter but I've never actually signed one because I wonder if it would actually make a difference?

    I'll just stick to Sims 3 & Sims 4. And maybe when Paralives comes out & if it's even better than Sims 4.

    sometime they help depending on the subject its also a way to let companys like ea know that some players are againts some features or againts them

    Yeah, I'm getting a little confused now, if they make the sims5 into an online landscape like Fortnite Creative or Roblox, then they can't sell packs anymore, how are players gonna build together if you hide all content behind packs? If I place a hot tub on my lot from my "super fun hot tub pack" and the other player doesn't have that pack, then you are either going to have to make that asset free or hide it, which is just not going to work.

    They will have to come up with a really good business model to earn money from this (that everyone is fine with) because I can't see how EA's shareholders are even remotely okay with giving up the billions of money they make from packs every year just so people can play...online?

    I'm starting to wonder if they are actually talking about the next step for the sims4 gallery and how they can make it better in the sims5, that sounds more sensible to me.

    I usually enjoy simming the most when I'm feeling socially exhausted and want to immerse myself in an activity alone, completely inaccessible to other people. So this game doesn't appeal to me at all so far. I don't want to be serenely watching my Sim eat birthday cake for 12 meals in a row when someone's all-sliders-at-100% abomination suddenly shows up at my door screaming about partisan politics and COVID in a chat window.

    I play the sims to escape real life and take a break from other people. MMO is a huge turn off for me, as is a subscription service. I'm not really into competitive features or forced narratives in this type of game either but as long as those features remain optional and don't detract from creative free play then I'm ok with them being included.

    😑 I've resigned myself at this point. I try really hard to have 0 expectations for Sims 5 since I'm pretty sure it's not going to be an amazing experience for me. If I even get it at this point. Everything I hear about it makes it less likely I'll bother to buy it. And like, okay, I get it. The franchise is like 20 years old or something. They need to try new things to net the people who haven't shown interest before. But why does it have to be this thing. Multi-player, online, marketplaces...if I wanted to play those types of games, I would play them, not the sims.

    I genuinely fear that the Sims 5 will be the nail in the coffin on the Sims series that will either leave it without new content, or with a dwindling playerbase. If EA doesn't listen to the community they're going to end up with a game that could possibly cost them their entire franchise. That's a terrifying thought and I really hope they pull their act together and listen.

    I am a big Elder Scrolls fan and I was disappointed when Elder Scrolls Online was announced. After a while, I ended up trying it anyway, but yeah, it's not for TES fans, it's for MMO fans. That's fine. I'm here back to enjoying The Sims instead and if I feel like killing dragons or raiding dungeons, I can replay Morrowind, Oblivion, Skyrim, etc. If TS5 is an MMO, I simply won't play it.

    First of all, I'm not competitive. I know I suck and I'm fine with that, I want to have fun while playing a game. I don't want pressure! Also, I am very particular about when/with whom I socialize. And if I'm concentrating on my game the last thing I want is the interruptions and expectations of others. And that's not even talking about the toxic people! And there are plenty of those too. Hopefully we can still enjoy TS4 after TS5 comes out. If not I'll find something else. Maybe TESVI will be out by then. Haha

    The Sims 4 Will be the last Sims game I will ever own. Won't buy The Sims 5 if it was online. Why?

    1. I don't have a stable internet connection to play it
    2. Lastly it will cost $60 Dollars. Even if the Base game features offline there is no denying that the online part is a major feature of the game. Paying for $60 on a game in which Half of it you will never use sounds bad to me. Specially since the time that they used on creating the online aspect can be used in fleshing out the offline part

    Agreed with... essentially this entire thread. I'll still check out trailers and such for TS5, but it's very unlikely I'll get the game. EA's asinine practice of believing that single-player games are losing popularity when so many single player games have reached the top of the charts (Spider Man PS4, God of War PS4, Sekiro, to name a very small few) that I would bet a lot of money that the game will fail. Who'd be dumb enough to bet the opposite is my question, honestly.
