I did not see a post about this but then again I didn't really look..... I apologize in advance, growing up I was never great at grammar (never understood it no matter how many different ways it was taught) and I tend to ramble on but hopefully you can stay with me.
I think we can all AGREE that we LOVE this game with a passion and only want to continue. As we know, no offence sims team you hear us but at the same time your not that great, MOST of the time giving us what we want/expect cough cough like a hot tub in a 20th anniversary update. Not that we demand it/expect it (well me personally) but at the same time if your someone like me that has been around since the FIRST SIMS, you probably spent at least a 1,000 dollars maybe or more, the beginning was more my parents but still that is not that point. The Point is that, all we want is to be heard me personally I like simplicity and the fact that I know some of you out there want the game more realistic like violence and drugs and etc...etc...etc... but the game for me is an escape from the harsh cruel world because its NUTS out there so I like that in my game they don't have that not that they have feelings there virtual "people" but the one thing that's nice is MODDERS can create those things for people that want them. Also as long as the sims team provides them with tools I admit those intense moments I should say help create a story(line)....
Anyways the point of this post was a IDEAS for the FUTURE SIMS 5 sense word of its been in the "AIR" / going around...why I said the other stuff in case you were wondering is more of a gentle vent/rant of I am tired of giving the sims team the benefit of the doubt and saying "You work very hard and can't please everyone, so no complaints" I am getting VERY tired of saying that and now with Sims 5 I would like to voice what I WOULD like to see before it gets released and you already screwed up. Not that the other Sims were failures compared to the first Sims, BUT at the same time the game lacked in departments yes there were improvements but just doing this HERE and THERE doesn't IMPROVE completely the previous ones which that's what it should be, anytime you create a newer version of this game to get a NEW and fresh audience of players to keep this game ALIVE doesn't mean throwing away the best parts of the previous you just tweek it to make it better with the additions you create. ANYWAYS RANT OVER NOW FOR IDEAS
With the 20th anniversary it made me play all the old Sims and made me realize even more so now, of what I Liked and Didn't like. The Best part is I think the majority of other players can agree (I would like to believe so, I could be wrong)...
I WOULD LOVE for the FUTURE Sims 5... I'm going to break it down of what I would like to see in Sims 5 from previous Sims games
SIMS 1 (2000)
Build and Buy from Superstar, Hot Date, Vacation, Makin Magic, House Party. (THIS INCLUDES IT'S GAMEPLAY WITH THOSE OBJECTS)
I used to laugh hysterical when they danced in the dancing cage and the Music Video Set.
Nightlife, Cars, some of the simple little details in "Actions", Grocery Store and Buying Groceries, Memories, Turn ON and OFFs. and a BIG ONE GAMEPLAY WITH BABIES (Might add more later to this one),
Open World, Horses, All the Supernatural occults. 5 Total Traits
Emotions and some of the UI systems you have created have been fun working with it.
Now I wrote this post originally before I went to work so I might update later when I come back, RAN OUT OF TIME. But to add a few things
I would love to see an open world again with NO RABBIT HOLES or LARVA BABIES. I would love to see the ability to have more than three Traits and have 5 again. Also Memories should make a comeback. A farm expansion to 5 would be nice especially if it included HORSES, cows, chickens and etc...
A Feature I thought that would cool would be FLAWS: You would have the ability to make any trait a flaw because some times things that we have that make our personalty also can be a flaw for example. You can be neat and clean but there is OCD which isn't necessarily a flaw but to others it can be a draw back.
Also another thing some life stages could be added for example: Pre-Teen and preschooler not quite a kid yet but not a toddler anymore.
like I said there can be more later that I add but it's 9:08am and I have to be to work at 9:30 feel free to add/chime in your thoughts, suggestions, ideas as well THANK YOU and remember be KIND : )
