Why is Everyone Mad at The Sims 4?

A lot of criticism is being thrown around; here’s what it’s all about

Packs are incomplete upon release

With every new pack comes a patch update for the base game in The Sims 4. And for whatever reason, each patch seems to screw up the newest DLC and create more bugs than we started with.

Players have to pay a fortune to get all the DLC

The Sims 4 has four different types of DLC: Expansion Packs (EPs), Game Packs (GPs), Stuff Packs (SPs), and, the newest type, Kits.

Players have to buy DLC in order to make the game fun

When The Sims 4 was released in 2014, people were objectively very excited. I didn’t play any of the past Sims games myself growing up, and didn’t really get into the game at all until 2019. However with the graphics, it was supposed to be a big step up from The Sims 3.
