.....won't let me play my games?!?!?!
So all the games I bought and paid for is no longer playable unless I download an app?! I don't understand this at all, how can you just lose all the games you paid for?!

just down load the app its just a launcher like origin was
I hardly ever come to this forum, sorry I think I put it under the wrong thread. Have you had any issue with it since using it? I haven't played the Sims in sometime so had no clue this was even going to change.
I had to down load last month its fine you don't even have to redownload your games it even removes the old launcher for you
I just got the notification to update this morning. Everything is working fine so far. It was a simple process for me but I have read of some people having issues. Just back up your saves.
It'd be interesting to know if anyone has had the same problem.
This EA App mess is one more reason why I won't enter into another round of dealing with EA when Sims5 is released. Rather than fix the remaining issues with the game, EA finds yet another way to take more control over what we paid for, and it is fraught with problems that have players upset and confused all over again. How much time will it take before these issues are resolved? Well, I don't want to find out because I'd rather be playing than wrestling with an app that doesn't seem to have much to offer.
My advice to anyone being denied access to Sims2 or Sims3 content they paid for is to file a formal complaint against EA itself. We can't do much about it here in the Forum except share our frustrations. Use any social media platform you belong to and let it be known what is going on. If there is anything EA dislikes more than low sales, it's bad PR. I own everything EA produced for Sims3, and nothing would infuriate me more than to lose access to my investment. It isn't right, and it is something EA needs to address now rather than later. Let us hope there is a fix for this problem included in the pre-EP update.
