I think that the sims should have some sort of memory feature back.
Not the "met so and so" or "burned tofu dog" but the major memories. More like "got married to so and so" and "so and so got a promotion" and "so and so died" and "so and so adopted so and so".
Since our sims can run around and do things on their own, even if you don't play a family for a while, it would be really nice to have someplace to catch up easily with the family.
This way, once story progression is fixed, we won't miss out on important events that happened and we won't have to pause the game and play catch up. It is annoying when you have to figure out what things are different and why.
Does anybody agree?
