Currently Consuming: The Sims 4

Small Currentrly consuming

The_Sims_4_Box_ArtA graphic step up, The Sims 4 is a mish-mash of elements from all previous versions of the game.

About: EA’s fourth installment of the life simulation game is one that allows players to create, shape, play, and control the lives of their ‘Sims.’ The Sims 4 sees the inclusion of emotions into the lives of your Sims, affecting both their mood, work, and family life.

Why: Origin had a half-price sale and despite my misgivings about the new installment, the cheap price tag called to me. It called! Beckoned, really.

Best Bits: The graphics are a step up from The Sims 3 with the character creation section allowing you to ‘click and drag’ your Sim’s bodies into any shape you want (within reason, of course). This function allows you to easily create a wider range of characters than previous games, I myself have been relishing the function by creating characters with incredibly unusual noses.

Also please refer to the image on the left. You can take an angry poop in The Sims 4. That is all

Thoughts so far: The game is good, however unlike its predecessors, The Sims 4 doesn’t have me sitting in front of the computer for hours on end. I can spend a few hours but this is nothing like the marathons I am use to pulling. I feel that currently I am unable to create as interesting stories and narratives for my Sims; I do think that this will change with the (currently unannounced) expansion packs.

At the moment I am still switching between the The Sims 3 and 4, however this does not detract from any enjoyment I have playing The Sims 4.
