    I'm very happy and satisfied with the state of The Sims, though I have some minor concerns
    The game engine is a big part of the problem


    The engine ... No matter the technology it doesn't stop humans to make mistakes and rush job.

    Basic 3D

    I played in 2017-2019 consistently and had a blast and got all the PS4 trophies. I came back end of 2021 and bought more packs and I’m honestly really enjoying it. I just played a honeymooners scenario in Batuu and guess what, had tons of fun despite all the negativity I read 😁.

    However.. I have seen bugs in content that used to work for me. And there’s definitely moments where I think they could have done better. Like the school.. c’mon EA, should look much better and have more to do. Sims is one of the biggest franchise in gaming and average doesn’t really cut it.

    I would like them to try to make all of their packs get 10/10 reviews. Even if they don’t always hit that. Like when designing the prom fairground I think instead of thinking “this can be a rabbit hole” they should think “what if we make the sims go on the ride”. This is the little extra things they should do to keep people happy.

    A big problem with testing is odd things break. Like a festival from city living. Or the drama club teen after school activity from Get Famous.

    When you’re playing and don’t get your reward from levelling the drama club it really really sucks.

    But I can understand that EA’s testers aren’t going to be playing every single stage of every previous bit of content to make sure it still works okay.

    I do wish they reacted faster to bug reports made to them though. One regarding toddler traits is still a problem and they’ve had open reports for a while.

    Maxis is doing their best to keep it stable ... but it's a big challenge with all these packs.


    The Sims true form
