Maxis Making Some Right Moves with Sims 4

From the article, "Everyone knows Maxis, and by extension EA, have made a lot of bad decisions when it comes to The Sims 4. The exclusion of toddlers and pools were both earth shattering announcements, to be sure. Yet, despite the fact that those two crucial elements are absent to make us buy expansion packs later, a lot of good decisions have been made. These are conscious design choices that are more important than being able to see our Sims in a certain stage of life or providing an easy out to dispose of characters we decided we didn’t want. Maxis and EA were wrong about the toddlers and pools, but they’re getting other things right." (PC, The Sims 4)
