    I prefer Freeplay. I have tried Sims Mobile but deleted it as it just wasn't as fun as I thought it was going to be.

    Originally I liked Freeplay better but I'd say they're pretty even now. There are different aspects of each that I really like.

    I'm still figuring out TSM, but I've played TSF for years (stopped 2-3 years ago) and what I've never liked about it are the quests' limited time to complete them and long hours some actions last. In comparison to TSM it's better if you like playing with different households, building different homes and playing with 8 sims (I think), because in TSM there are only 4 Sims available and one household.

    The Sims Mobile: it has TS4 content, which I love; although the prices and money you earn is not balanced and some people say prices go up as you progress in the game (like in TSF, but at a much rapid pace). IMO the interaction's menu between Sims is not clear enough, because if you're a first-time player it can mislead you, like it's happened to lots of players, me included. Sims can't be deleted, stories can't be changed, but different events can take place at the same time, which allows players to do multiple things at once.

    The Sims Freeplay: it has grown over the years and has original content (build and buy mode). There are many lots to place your Sims and it's a great idea, you create their relationships with your own Sims, there aren't NPCs. There are no stories to complete, you just choose is it's a friendship, romantic relationship or enmity. You can have pets, visit you friends households (from FB) and establish relationships with them.

    (There are more characteristics that I may not have covered because I don't know them yet or I forgot)

    I haven't played TSF in a long time, I left it when there were apartments available, but I think TSM is a combination of TSF and TS4, I suppose it will change over time as TSF did, and expand its word. They are different but have similarities. Personally I prefer TSM now, I don't know if in a few months I will hate it, but that's my view on both games. :)

    I've tried TSF and TSM and I prefer TSM. It's easier to dip in and out of for a start. Where as TSF seems overly complicated and more work. I don't have an issue with work lol! But sometimes I can't dedicate the time to complete tasks and I feel that TSF maybe a game I need to dedicate the time too

    Thank you for this, I was also wondering what the differences are now my mind is clear, I have tried TSF and TSM and I have to say I prefer TSM as like a few others said you can hop in and out of the game.

    This is really off topic - but instead of 2 sims games I wish they would make a sims forum app! That would be so cool.

    Honestly I prefer Freeplay. Sims mobile is so boring I tried it for a few hours and immediately deleted. The energy and the taping multiple times to do something gets really old. I also hate how it re-uses TS4 stuff, which they are re-selling at outrageously expensive prices.

    What's the difference between The Sims free play and the Sims mobile ?? I just don't get it 🤔 hmm..😁

    I love the sims full stop as I have both the sims mobile and free play on my phone.
    I also have the sims 3 on the xbox 360.

    I didn't care much for TSF because of the gardening aspect. I stopped playing years ago. TSM is more fun, imo.

    I prefer Freeplay. I've been playing it off and on for years, it doesn't feel so busy. At least the babies move more freely, lol

    FreePlay will always have a place in my heart. It introduced me to the Sims franchise and I was an avid player (:
  • Renato10Renato10 Posts: 455 Member
    Freeplay was better in terms of being more "classic" sims game. I say it was because now is full of ads that you only can turn off if you are vip3. I don't know about you but I will never pay real money for a mobile game so it became annoying and not free to play anymore! But in terms of gameplay, is way better than mobile despite long real time actions.

    Sims Mobile is good, The Sims FreePlay, is, Uhm, just, bad.
  • ilikethesims30ilikethesims30 Posts: 556 Member
    To be honest, I prefer The Sims 3 game.


    Both TSF and TSM have advantages. I think I like TSM better.
  • RJB2525RJB2525 Posts: 8 New Member
    Sims mobile is way way better.

    I thougt sim mobile on handphone much better. I see on youtube is so good isnt it? https://shrinke.me/06msHG

    TS Freeplay has much better gameplay. It has plenty of quest, you can build plenty of houses and have a huge amount of playable sims. The Sims Mobile is extremely boring. It has only some 2-3 repeatable events, which are very boring. That game has almost no gameplay. It has stories to complete but they are boring and dull.

    These two games are completey different.

    Even though The Sims Mobile isn’t perfect, I still prefer The Sims Mobile over The Sims Freeplay. Better graphics is one of my reasons I enjoy The Sims Mobile more. That and in The Sims Mobile, you can makeover the townie NPC’s which is cool in my opinion.

    Sims Freeplay is a really old mobile game that came out during Sims 3's era, while Sims Mobile has better graphics and was made during Sims 4's era. There's been tons of old mobile and ds sim games and spin-offs. But TSF and TSM are the ones that are well off enough for EA to continue updating them.

    The gameplay for both are a bit different, imo The Sims Mobile is more similar to The Sims Social facebook game (which was shut down rip), while Sims Freeplay is uh... kinda really different from anything else the sims has done. Gameplay-wise they're both fine (for an app game). Playing Sims 2 or even Sims 1 would be more fun, but I don't think either TSF or TSM are bad.
