Should we buy the next expansion?
Updated with Werewolf Diaries (1)
Repose en paix mamie tu va me manquer :
It's iffy, I have to like the layout of the town, and if it comes with other things I like, maybe.
I am not a part of "you", I am myself and I do what I please. If the next EP appeals to me, I'll buy it - like with everything else I decide to or decide not to buy. It makes no difference to me what you as a person or you as a group (whoever you are) do.
I really hope you're being a troll...
He is a troll but he's also serious so...
This OP. "We" are not robots and everyone can choose what they want or not to buy. For me, I'll wait for more info but honestly I'm pretty sure I'll get it. But that's my decision, not "Our" decision.
Closer to the first. If I like the features and mechanism details of the pack overall after trailers and blog posts and the pre-release liveplay and guru answers to the questions I have or share with others, if I'm sure I'll use the content enough to merit non-sale price, and if I've got free time on release day, I won't wait. Otherwise, I'll wait, but not only for reviews - also for what I see people doing with the pack here, and for free time to use it.
I don't do "faithful" to companies, even ones I don't think are iffy.
(fixed a typo)
If it is indeed a "City Living" themed expansion then I will definitely be buying it assuming it doesn't look like a complete mess, because It's one of the two expansions I really care about seeing in Sims 4.
Hang on, regardless of whether or not it's EA's best performing game (which I doubt) ... TS4, as far as I can tell, isn't the best-selling PC game (at least not of 2015)? Unless you mean something else?
Here's what I found:
Top 20 best-selling video games 2015 (no sims)
50 best-selling video games 2015 (no sims)
Top 10 best-selling PC games worldwide (no sims)
Sales of the best-selling pc games of all time worldwide as of June 2016 (sims yes, but not TS4, instead it's TS3)
One other thing I'd like to add to this. Perhaps to you there is "no downfall". And that's fine. Ideally, we would all want to feel like that. But to say that the franchise overall hasn't dropped in ratings? That actually isn't true. Just look at the Metacritic ratings for all 4 Sims games (and metacritic is probably one of the best sources to go looking for a more or less unbiased overview, since it aggregates all kinds of reviews, both positive and negative, from a wide variety of sources, so I wouldn't just disregard that):
Sims 1: 92% Metascore / 38 critics - 7.9 User Score / 439 Ratings
Sims 2: 90% Metascore / 61 critics - 8.8 User Score / 652 Ratings
Sims 3: 86% Metascore / 75 critics - 7.7 User Score / 860 Ratings
Sims 4: 70% Metascore / 74 critics - 3.9 User Score / 2012 Ratings
As much as I understand that you like the game, please don't call everyone a troll or a negative person that doesn't. They're quite clearly not the only ones who have doubts...
I've never seen their guides come out before release, except for pre-announced info. Usually it seems to take a few days to a week for all the pieces to come together. @SimsVIP_Admin is around here now and then, though, and could probably talk about how they put the guides together sometime
Apartments, Bands, and the Mayor's career and City Hall lot from the surveys sound interesting to me, but I have no idea if they will actually be in the EP.
Then I have to know how it works.
I will have to see reviews and get other simmers opinions firsts.
Even then, this EP will not give me what I need (toddlers and pre-teens/or reworked teens)
If it makes what I have a little more entertaining while I wait for the game to get what I need, I may go for it, but I might just put it on the waiting list like the last Game Pack and couple of stuff packs.
