For those who have had more time to play Sims 4 what are you thoughts now? Have they changed from your first impression, just spill the beans like a bag of pinto! I still love Sims 4 and it feels so right it feels wrong as in how can a game feel this good! Where is the catch!? However I have defiantly ran into a few road blocks that thankfully I know will be cured in the future. Like in build mode I love the very distinct defined categories given to us but there are few items that seek to break the mold. A example of this is fencing. There are no low lying borders for gardens except for the two iron styles. Doors, windows, really everything falls in a narrow selection of style which is fantastic in that they made the styles fleshed out but building creatively proves difficult. Do I want to build a modern, Spanish, or classic style home? If I want to adventure out of these three defined categories....nope not going to happen. It bothered me with Sims 3 that they would lightly touch on a style with only a few styles being fully explored leaving a hodge podge of build items. So I am appreciative with the new more focused direction they have gone but it is currently frustrating. As a side note I hope that with future EPs they continue with this. EPs like Supernatural would give a general theme but it never felt complete. These three styles they have given us feel complete. I really hope they put forth the same effort to complete styles instead of us hoping that a future store set/ep/sp does. It is defiantly comforting to know the issues that I have found with Sims 4 can be cured. I only have small issues like the before mentioned limited style when in build/buy mode and NO VENDING MACHINES (WHY LORD WHY?!AHHH!!!) but my opinion has not changed really. Which goes into my next topic expansion packs. With the first expansion pack looming around the corner (we all know it is coming soon) I am hyper ventilating. How well the expansion packs are made can make or break the game. How many of us kept hoping that the eps of Sims 3 would fill in a void that we could not explain. I want expansion packs that go beyond adding new elements but also adding to the core gameplay. While I do hope they chase grandiose ideas like with Island Paradise I also hope they do not loose the realization it is the small elements that leave a lasting and equally big impact. I understand there is not a defined list of what is necessary to the game and that with each EP they can only fit so much. One thing we can agree on though is some general concepts that need to be introduced earlier rather than later like Seasons. Core gameplay features were not added until the very end of Sims 3 and for me it was to late to wrangle my interest back in. Like the University EP, mind you it had its many faults like gaining a degree really did not have that large of an impact or give much incentive for generally speaking it only gave you a boost in already available careers but I am digressing. It was introduced so late in the game I had become so adjusted to the idea of my Sims not going to college/not needing it that it seemed like a frivolity despite how many great aspects it had. Despite ourselves over the years we become cemented in a overall specific routine and having core concepts that play a large role like weather turn into a more oh that is intriguing than wow it feels like I am playing a new game. Boy have I gone on an off wall tangent that has no structure or reason ahem ! So please going back to the first question I would like to know how you feel. ALSO WHY NO VENDING MAchinES WHY *SOB* My sims get hungry and they have to go home when a simple snack from a vending machine could be the cure!? WHY?! WHY!!!! They would be perfect in certain locations like the gym!!! WHY WHY WHY!!!! I NEED THEM! THOSE EVIL CRETINS DID NOT ADD THEM UNTIL UNIVERSITY?! DO NOT DO THIS TO ME AGAIN!!!! NO NO NO NO NO NO!!! A HUNDRED TIMES NO!!!! *rocks back and forth*....*cough* Ok I think I am done.....DID IT NOT BOTHER ANYONE ELSE THOSE FRIDGES IN SIMS 3!?! HOW MANY GyMS HAVE FRIDGES?!?!?!?! FOR PUBLIC ACCESSS! WHYYYYYY!!!! WHERE ARE THE VENDING MACHINESS!! *grabs paper bag* Calm yourself you must calm yourself it is going to be ok....NO IT IS NOT OK!
