If Sims 4 Doesn't Sell, There Won't Be A Sims 5

With Sims 4's launch only days behind us, the Sims forums have been flooded with all sorts of questions, complaints, troubleshooting tips and, in some cases, affectionate adoration for the developers. And it's hardly surprising, what with the games impressive additions striving against a veritable truckload of oversights. What is surprising, though, is just how quickly fans are willing to offer up their demands for the next installment.

Please do not support this game . It shows you how effin greedy EA really is and if you think that they will release the other half of the game for free then you are fooling yourselves . Maxis really needs to get out of there and make their own game . Free of this greedy company .

If they were greedy, they would release better games. They would make more money that way.

When a games business model is DLC, you simply release a new games so everyone has to buy the DLC again. The sims hasn't really evolved at all since 2. New releases are just an excuse to charge for the same dlc over and over and over again.

Will not be missing this game. Rot in pieces, and good riddance.

I try to never buy from Ea. I know that more shady companies exist but in the realm of gaming, they're always the ones trying to impose strategies that screw the consumer.

They will act like it's our fault for not buying the game and that " nobody wants a sims game"

They just don't want to make it the way we want them to.

The arrogance.

Back-to-Back3197d ago

Agreed. I personally wish they would remake The Sims Online 2.

"If Sims 4 Doesn't Sell, There Won't Be A Sims 5"

Is that a promise?

CloudRap3197d ago

It will survive they will just make a police themed reskin and pretend the previous game never happened.

And ? What's with this title ? A guilt trip and hostage situation ?

If it dies , it's on EA and the medias , not the fanbase

-Foxtrot3197d ago

"Guilt trip"

I was just about to say the same thing

It's like

"Shit, they have caught on to our money grabbing plans, lets tell them they'll have to buy Sims 4 to get Sims 5"

Must be an EA higher up in disguise..only EA are deluded enough to blame their fans for their own blatant shortcomings.

Baka-akaB3197d ago (Edited 3197d ago )

And this a perfect example of why i have issues with almost all gaming medias , instead of looking out for gamers and being useful to them , even without being militant like some request since the Gamergate stuff , they'd rather spend time defending devs and publishers against our interest .

It's always crap out of the blue like "Why it's ok to get screwed over a decision from MS , sony or Nintendo" , "Why you should be ok with dlcs" , "why you whine too much" , "Why you should go to hell for not supporting that game our editors loved but you thought was crap" , "why it's ok for a game to bear no ressemblance at all to a franchise it borrows , you should shut up and be happy for oblivious newcomers " etc etc ...

Read Hardcore Gamer's review of the Sims 4 if you think this article is defending EA or Maxis.

Baka-akaB3197d ago (Edited 3197d ago )

Sorry but i have a policy since the beginning . Clickbait title ? i dont bother reading and might stick to the comment section if anything .

I wont blame myself if the content doesnt seem to match the rest for the sake of hits .

But glad to see it's not about defending EA

LogicLee3197d ago

Hardly on the "medias." Honest reviewers gave the game the score it deserved. Bad games shouldn't exist just because fans want the series to continue.

Baka-akaB3197d ago

Well big sites , the one with the biggest pull , arent usually honest . And they are likely , bare the occasional surprise , to give it a thumbs up .

So it's at least partially on those , when they are so complacent and ads segments

I hope so. I prefer they keep make Sim City games instead.

Benoski3197d ago (Edited 3197d ago )

If EA kills The Sims, then it'll be their own fault. They took out key features from both 2 and 3 and dumbed down others. It's no wonder why fans are hating this game.

Honestly, I don't care for the series anymore.
