Oh boy, I can't wait to go back to basic Sims to rebuy all the DLC again!

This is their cycle. They release the Sims, release a load of DLC at $40 a go, then move on to the next one that is just the basic Sims experience so that they can sell it to you again.

I don't even give a s*** about the Sims 4 at this point. Sims 3 did it right, though it's possibly the worst optimised game on PC.

I'm curious what direction they're going to go with Sim 5.
It'd be nice if they returned the scale of Sim 3 (although I doubt the technology has caught up to what the original vision was).

It won't be, that was ruled out. They'll be announcing something Sims 4 related. EA let ALOT of Maxis employees go recently and is now hiring new staff for Maxis. Sorry but Sims 5 is WAY WAY WAY off. According to an ex simguru, Sims 5 has not even started development at all. This ex guru also stated EA plans to milk Sims 4 for as long as they can.

I didn't even know the studio was still alive. Albeit in name only. I was quite sure it was already dead. It has certainly been depicted as already dead

EA’s decision to overly inject Sims-like casual gameplay into games ruined 3 franchises.

Spore
SimCity
And eventually The Sims itself.

Sims 4 was garbage. For its time Sims 2 was probably the best although Sims 3 is my favourite but its held back to poor programming and technical issues.

No no no no no. You rephrase that right f***ing now or I swear to christ I I'll shut that s*** down for you personally. "f*** Sims 4 and it's $300 dlcs."
You leave the previous games right the f*** alone.
Sims 3, 2 and 1 are all fantastic.

f*** Sims 4 though and unfortunately we will most likely have to say f*** Sims 5 considering I don't see a bright future for the franchise.

Once upon a time The Sims got periodic collections including the base game and most expansions. Those days seem over.

My sister skipped The Sims 4 in part due to that.
