After playing the Sims 3 for a while my biggest problem is with story progression. While being neighborhood wide, I wish it were also house specific. I really hate the fact that the game takes families I've created and does what it likes with them. What if I had a specific plan for them that is now ruined? What's the point of playing a games that plays itself? What if I want some houses to progress but not others because they're part of a story line I'm trying to create? What if I want the neighborhood to progress but not these, or this specific house?
I really hope this gets looked at and changed becuase it's really killing the game for me. I feel like I'm stuck in one house with one family, the exact opposite of what the Sims 3 is supposed to be.
