First impressions of The Sims 4

First Impressions

Okay, so by far my favorite thing so far about The Sims 4 is the multitasking. Eating and drinking together, reading a book and watching tv, etc. It's so cool to finally be able to multitask. I still haven't really played very long, but I also like the baby features. My Sim had her baby and I like that you can breastfeed as well as the other interactions (more than you could do in previous The Sims versions at the baby stage). I also like the ease of the build mode. I was able to put together a new house for my Sim and her family fairly easily with the "drop a furnished room" feature. I LOVE all of the different skills and plants. I also like the way the Lifetime wish is broken down into phases with goals for each phase. One dislike is the camera, sometimes it just won't zoom in the way I want it to and that's frustrating. Like I said, I still have only played a small fraction of time, but I hope to update more as I play through more. 

Here is a post I made when I first started playing that gives more details on my likes and dislikes:First Thoughts on the Sims 4 Likes/Dislikes 

My Sim Story

Hello all! If you've stumbled upon this blog you are probably a fan of The Sims. I'm not sure how much I'll be able to update the blog, but I'll do what I can. I wanted to start with my own Sim story. I was first exposed to The Sims with the original game. I guess I was in about fourth or fifth grade at a friend's house and we started playing. I then got my own copy of The Sims Deluxe (so base game and I think two expansions). My parents took it away because they felt it was inappropriate. Anywho then I was like 13 and I found it and asked for it back and my parents let me have it back. Since then I owned all of The Sims 1 and expansions (since donated to Goodwill). All of The Sims 2 and expansions (except I think I did skip a stuff pack or two). I also have The Sims 3 and all expansions (except at this point not all of the custom store content or all stuff packs). I also bought the base game of The Sims 4 and I have The Sims Medieval. This blog will mostly be The Sims 4 and The Sims 3. Depending on the time I have to play and other factors, it may be more of The Sims 4. I hope you enjoy reading about my Sims. :-)
