EA, lets just assume you've heard the news already. You no longer are the only fish in the sea, life simulation type games, that is. There are at least two other, currently in progress, games that have been announced publicly. The first release, technically early access, is Life by You in September.
Now, with competition will undoubtedly come new ideas as each company tries to outshine the others, and we Simmers are excited to see what comes out of this. But there is also a thing called loyalty. EA, lets face it. Most of us don't know these other companies too well. Paralives is a tiny company, and Life by You is by another large gamer company, that unless you play a lot of other games, you've probably not heard much of. Now, EA consider this for a minute, would you rather trust your money to a company who has been charging you for smaller and smaller packs, giving you glitches on top of more glitches, or a brand new company you know nothing about. For most players, the new company will win out. BUT... It's not over yet. Listen up EA, you have until September, possibly longer if LBY's Early access proves to be less impressive on first release. You can change things and become a more trustworthy company in the meantime. To start, stop releasing new packs. I know they bring you money, but if you tell your crews to work on improving the game's glitches, and playtesting your own packs first, it will help. Undoubtedly others will suggest more things you could do to improve your image below. I encourage you to read these and try a few. For the first time, we will have a voice with our money on the types of games and gaming companies we want to support. Listen.
