The thing that irritates me about the Sims is how they refuse to mature the game. The Sims 1-3 had a lot of adult themes then the Sims 4 is like a kids game. Why do we need a mod to get our sims "juiced"? I'm not sure how the Sims developers are so out of touch with their player base. Most sims players are 20-30 now, if they target the Sims 5 to kids again it would be a missed opportunity. Kids now don't usually play the sims like we did in the 2000s-2010s the Sims 5 needs to mature a bit because if it's vanilla like the Sims 4 I'm not gonna buy that ****.

Watch it have a more kiddy, tiktok, social media, meme tone than TS4 :rip:

All that cringe flat out put me off 4 (besides the fact that it's boring).

 

I was thinking about OG sims the other day and hard the urge to listen to Superstar's OST.

Honestly it’s gonna have the same tone / style as TS4 bc it’s the least work and the most successful Sims game. We’re never gonna get a 2/3 again I’ve just accepted that.

im expecting TS5 to basically be the same as 4, just with a few features that fans have wanted for a while. either way the bar has always been in HELL with the sims team so i’ve learnt to expect nothing so i can be pleasantly surprised:redface:

tbh I just don't see the creative direction that The Sims team could go for TS5.. developers of 2 and 3 had concepts of what is needed to elevate the game and make it a direct improvement over its predecessors:

Sims 2 had 3D world, full life cycle, genetics, chemistry etc.. basically sims 1 on a budget

Sims 3 had open world, a more nuanced personality system

Sims 4 tried to do something with the different moods but overall it wasn't as grand as the previous two. and I don't think the developers are inspired to do something interesting for TS5, nor does EA want them to

idk they're already playtesting it and teased an official clip, there's no way it's still that early into development  :deadbanana4:

They already said we are years out from release. This is also the first time they are incorporating fan feedback into the development. Idk I understand why some have little faith in EA but the world in TS5 looks great assuming its walkable and not loading screens. It has a lot of potential already. We know Create a Style is back which is huge. Idk I'm excited. The sims need to look great and that'll really gauge my interest. TS4 was so bad I never got into it so I hope this will be my rentry to Sims.

Couldn't help myself after finishing the rags to riches challenge I bought Bought Discover Uni, Dream Home Decorator and Tiny Living. Love the CAS & Build/Buy. My sim is too cute.

Oh wow I've never seen that image of the sims 3 before :eek:

 

I remember seeing screenshots of the sims 2 while it was in development and thought the beta looked way better graphics wise than the actual final release did :deadbanana4:

The Sims 4 was meant to be more mature though. There was even a WooHoo skill that had to be pulled because it didn’t meet the Teen rating. 

 

The issue isn’t the devs, it’s the fact the ratings for games are more sensitive. Especially in Europe. 

 

They can’t afford the loss of demographic if they make it a Mature game. T for Teen is the highest they will go. But what’s considered T for Teen is now way more filtered than before.
