    I really like the retail, careers and aliens, though I wish the aliens could do more and I wish Sixam was a liveable world for them.

    Sixam is a beautiful planet, and I love the build mode items. I like the careers.

    Disguised Aliens. I have lots of Alien gameplay because of that feature.

    I absolutely LOVE the Scientist and Detective (after they fixed some bugs!) careers. Doctor is allright too, but can be annoying with your collegues being in the way and such. Also can be difficult to find the right diagnosis, because they show no idle signs.

    Not gotten too much into the Alien thing yet. Though I've had a couple of human(vampire)/alien births, but not played them much yet.

    Typical me... I forgot that the Cameras and Photo Studio came with this pack. I obviously love filling my sims' walls with photos of my sims, so that might be my favorite feature.

    Careers, especially science & aliens. I have to admit it took a while for aliens to grow on me, but after a couple of abductions produced some adorable children, I was sold. I do wish our sims could go to the hospital for more than just work or having a baby, get some illnesses treated or get vaccinated. I also kind of wish our own sims could get arrested & thrown in the clink once in a while.

    Photography is the only feature I use from this expansion still very basic and that was patched in later so there is nothing I love about this pack they destroyed retail and I could care less about active careers or aliens.
    Sims 4 went from "You Rule" to "One of the stories we want you to tell"

    Apart from its many faults, GTW does have its redeeming qualities. What I like personally are the Aliens; although they're not as well built up as an occult should and needs a serious overhaul akin to Vampires, I enjoy playing with the aspects they do have and the alien concept as a whole. Pair them up with the Scientist career (which is by far the best of the three active careers imo), and you have access to all these new scientific gadgets that you, the scientist, get to create~!

    GTW is actually my personal favorite pack of the eps - thanks for the addition of the alien Sims for one - but mostly because of the 3 Hands on careers and going to work with my Sims.

    It is absolutely fun for the way I like to play.

    I love anything occult, so Aliens are a big plus for me, but I also like a lot of the BB items and the opportunity to create objects in the Science career that can do some pretty wacky things.

    Business!

    I fell in love with running a business back in Sims 2. The closest thing I found in Sims 3 was some retail stuff that came with Midnight Hollow, but I made use of that, too.

    In Sims 4, I could take or leave most of the active careers. I could take or leave Aliens; my occult tastes lean further toward fantasy than sci-fi. Though nothing will ever replace Open for Business, I can at least tinker with my retail dreams.

    I do like a lot of the objects, too. I know I just said I prefer fantasy to sci-fi, but I also like modern design, and a lot of the functional-looking pieces can be stylish when they're used right. And sci-fi is cool. Fantasy is prettier, but sci-fi is still cool. Fight me. But not really.

    Aliens and the Freeze Ray. Unpopular opinion, but I remember thinking that the game needed these two more than toddlers. Other than that, I've grown to like running businesses and finally being able to create a little computer repair shop... When they work.... without mods....


    Who am I kidding, I just like owning a mall and watching chaos unfold.

    Even thought retail isn't as awesome and detailed as in Open For Business, it's one of my favourite aspects of the game still.

    I've always loved the detective career, even though it's been buggy (and still is, with all the npcs walking around with the most weird clothing choices you could possibly imagine...) - it has great potential and, IMHO, should be expanded.

    definitely the scientist career. lots of fun, ive played it several times. owning a restaurant is also fun to play. do not like retail, far to labor intensive, i.e. having to chat up prospective shoppers for very little financial return.

    Being able to follow my Sim to work and help them do their job. I (as a player) got pretty darn good at diagnosis after a time … My favorite career, though is the Detective career. Solving mysteries is fun.

    I like the scientist field and could have liked the doctor but it is too repetitive and goal driven and that is for the whole pack.

    If your not a fan of active open careers and retail. I can understand

    For me it added so much more than get famous.
