I've played The Sims since the beginning and I must say I've been hooked for a long time ... until The Sims 4. I have to admit that I hated it at first and vowed never to play again. I even joined the 'haters' in bashing the game. However, I must say you guys have come through to the die hard fans and I appreciate it. I love the game play. Thank you for fixing the issues. The butler actually does stuff, rather than just walking around and taking up space. I love the Island Living expansion pack. After owning it forever I finally moved a family in and I must say the attention to detail is awesome. The wading in and out of the water, footsteps in the sand ... love it! And I haven't explored everything yet. Anyway, thank you for putting out a game that keeps me engaged and away from my responsibilities that have seriously been neglected. I'm a true simmer and can't wait to see what you guys do next.
