What packs are good and bad is a matter of opinion, but some packs are hated more than others. The packs I listed are the most hated ones. Journey to Batuu is obviously going to get a lot of votes, but I still included it there anyway.
My First Pet stuff is just the addition of extra stuff that should have been in Cats and Dogs. You also have to purchase Cats and Dogs in order to buy My First Pet stuff.
My Wedding Stories is extremely buggy and nearly unplayable as a result (I don't know if the bugs were fixed, I don't have it, it's a good pack on it's own but given how many bugs it has, I can see why it's so hated).
Dine Out takes an extremely long time for your food to be served, and I've heard it's also very buggy.
I don't understand the hate towards Strangerville since it's a great pack with an awesome story, but since it's hated I still put it there.
The packs are sorted based of off how much I hate them.

Be yourself; life is not about pleasing others, it's about pleasing yourself. Don't try to please others if it makes you uncomfortable. If others judge you for who you are, ignore them. If what you do makes you happy, continue.
such as luxury party we certainly have better things for luxury parties now
or the glorified hot tub pack because well now you are really just paying to take roof off your hot tub
i feel like i have love hate relationship with mws because on one hand its just luxury party 2 and its also broken to core but i mean i be lying if it didn't try to add content i wanted for such a long time
picked my first pet because its also another stuff pack that barely needed to exist in first place and having to buy cats and dogs to even get use out of most stuff is kind of silly
Luxury Party! Didn't think of that when I made the poll.
Dine Out is a whole other level. I would have really enjoyed a good restaurant pack, and I miss that feature from the Sims 2. Unfortunately, I've seen people play with it in let's plays and it looks so cumbersome to use that I can't bring myself to buy it. At least Wedding Stories and Batuu didn't disappoint me.
-Yes, person I barely know, you have my blessing to hang out with Johnny Zest.
-No person with the mean, hot-headed and self-absorbed traits, I don't think you should get married.
My first pet is actually cute and very usable. I’ve recently used the hamster cage, a Halloween outfit for my cat, the cat tree with the scratching pole and the fish tank table. It’s one of the better stuff packs, and the main reason people dislike it is because of the cash grab and the feeling it was omitted from the expansion. But it’s definitely not close to being the worst pack in my opinion.
I wouldn’t say Batuu is the worst either. It’s the one that probably shouldn’t exist, but it’s not actually that bad.
I’m going to say luxury party stuff is the worst pack. Or cool kitchen stuff.
But objectively, I'd say My First Pet is the worst. Not necessarily because of its content (even though I only bought it on sale for the aquarium table and nothing else), but because of how that content was handled. We all know the story.
Something wicked this way comes!
I don't use MCCC.
But the main reason why I would classify this pack as "worst" is because it is so limiting. With the other packs I was able to build, create stories, have relationships, run a business...
With Journey To Batuu I was only able to visit Batuu and do missions... and that was about it. I did 100% of all missions, and it was, very, boring. Rabbit holes, travel between lots all the time, repetitive missions... If you just visit the world as a vacation then I guess it's fine but I was able to play the other packs for much longer.
I was on the fence between journey to batu and my first pet. And now that I think about it I should have picked my first pet. Having to on a DLC to fully use another DLC is completely wrong. But I do like the gameplay.
Strangerville is a great pack. I found it a lot of fun. Especially the first run through. I have solved the mystery more than once. The world is pretty cool even though I don’t have my Sims live there ever. I would actually not mind if they did another story pack like that again. B/B, Cas, Career, it’s is a solid pack.
All the other packs work decently so they aren't the worst. The next awful pack that I wished I hadn't bought is My First Pet. I rarely use anything from this pack.
My First Pet stuff is DLC for DLC. That's the main issue. Though the other issue is that the rodent cages are large (seriously, TS1 and TS2 had it smaller). Quality of stuff, well... not great either...
My Wedding Stories has a beautiful world, but launched buggy and was in controversy pre-launch. The gameplay is made to be so micro-managy, which at some parts I get. Still, less bugs next time please!
Dine Out is buggy, but the concept is great. Being able to customize a restaurant menu without owning it is great. But I agree it's slow and buggy, especially after they sped up eating.
StrangerVille? It has a story, but it also has gameplay that you can enjoy without getting deeper to the story. Military career, bugging sims to listen in to their activities and blackmail for their money, and sparring bot. Well, most of the things talked about that go under spoiler tag though. Still, it allows some freedom (unlike that JtB game pack).
Why is perfect patio not listed here. That pack basically lost it's reason to exist. The only reason to get this pack, was to get hot tubs but they are now base game. I used to like some of the objects but don't use them anymore since the hot tub update because every time I am reminded that this is the pack where EA screwed me. In all honesty, I think the price of this pack should be permanently reduced to half price. It is the same level as a kit nowadays.
As for the other nominees
- journey to batuu : I like playing it from time to time but this pack has intentionally avoid pack integration. The devs disabled weather, pets, occults and so many useful inventory items (easels, knitting basket,...) on batuu. Unfortunately it is also very separate from the rest of the game. Batuu doesn't do much for everyday gameplay
- dine out : great pack but it should work properly. I only visit restaurants and never run them. Visiting a small restaurant at speed one works OK for me
- strangerville : story based gameplay is not for everyone but I enjoy it occasionally. After completing the quest, you can use the world as a regular world. The military career can also be used without playing the story so this pack is still usable after completing the story.
- my first pets stuff: this pack should have been part of cats and dogs. Cats and dogs felt too bare bone to be so quickly followed by a stuff pack with another pet. Some of the furniture in my first pets stuff also clearly belongs to a furniture set cats and dogs. That being said, I am not strictly against the concept of DLC for DLC. Remember my first pets stuff can be used without cats and dogs. The rodent pets are functional within cats and dogs. I wouldn't mind getting new pets clothing in another DLC. Or how about a new washer and dryer in a kit which are functioning for people with laundry day?
JtB and MFP are poor in taste or controversial because of various reasons but they at least provide unique things + have working content.
Strangerville is a great pack.
People can say what they want about Batuu, but it was different, gave us some really unique things in Build/Buy and CAS, and it worked perfectly when it released. It's still one of my favorite CAS collections. 💜
Strangerville was good at what it was and didn't pretend to be anything else. It had some great Build items, too.
I only know that Dine Out is very buggy and hasn't been fixed yet. I don't know much about My Wedding Stories, aside from the Russia controversy.
Batuu I get is disapointing, but it’s still playable and adds something totally different to the game. Plus there’s a couple items from this pack I use alllll the time.
I’m suprised people still have beef with MFP.. obvs it was cut content from C&D but it’s kinda obvious this is common practice now.. I think with a different release date people would have been ok with it, rather than right after C&D came out. Like would you say no to a horses stuff pack now, if it required C&D to play?
I haven't bought Wedding Stories because of the absolutely awful gameplay I've seen youtubers posting, which still isn't much better. But I do own Dine Out, and even with the bugs in that pack, I still enjoy using it and take my lagacy family out to restaurants. Sometimes it bugs out and it takes way too long for the food to arrive, when that happens I usually leave without saving and reload the sim day, and either try that restaurant again or do something else with my sim. But Dine Out still works half the time and is usable IMO.
It's just sad that an old pack, that worked upon release and is only broken now because of modern updates breaking stuff in it, functions better than a brand new pack that just got released this year. Wedding Stories really deserves to be more hated than Batuu is.
