I started playing TS4 a few weeks ago thinking I would play like 3 hours and get bored...
Now my Origin account shows 50hrs of game time on it. 🙄

I love it and since I skipped TS2 & 3 I'm not bothered much about the gameplay, even playing the vanilla version

Also I'm starting to look into modding it myself.

Sims 4 on console is a Hit or miss 


don't get me wrong i love sims but its hard to be engaged to sims 4 when all the other sim games were more raunchy. But i play sims on Pc where i can Modify it to make it better

I love the sims 3 and 4.
I feel like 3 ran better on most of my devices but Sims 4 has so much customization.

i have almost all expansions for 4 and so much fuckin custom content. i actually bought a premium subscription to tsr because of how much cc i use. i honestly like sims 4 a lot. i've been playing since 2. 2 is probably my favorite, but i like 4 a lot. 3 was really great but always so laggy for me.

I do play from time to time. The Sims 4 is a little better with expansion packs and such, but I think the base game itself feels very empty and has very few features.

I don't play with mods anymore but I remember that I had a mod earlier where you would get more careers such as model or singer. I don't remember what the mod was called though.

I have all the expansions, game packs (minus the Star Wars one I can’t justify paying for it), and stuff plays when I tell you I’m obsessed I mean I’m obsessed lol. I just recently started actually playing it though and not just building in the game so I still suck at CAS but it’s still fun lol.

 I still have fun with the Sims 4 because I love to RP, and I make alot of head cannons. I do think Mods could help this some time and the game does have lots of bugs. But the Make your own world mod look neat to me. Also something we should have in the game.

I've just started to mod my game and so far it's been a game changer [pun intended]. There's mods out there to add whatever elements you want to the game. Whether it's clothes, build items, moodlets, behaving pets, etc. Right now I'm into cc clothes and build items. Oh and save files! Downloading another player's save file with new characters and homes and drama adds a lot of fun.

I put about 500 hours into Sims 4 over a few months last year. Then I just stopped and moved onto other games. Might download it again. 


I loved designing lots and had all sorts of wacky altercations and scenarios going on. BasementalDrugs, WickedWhims, Extreme Violence, Slice of Life and all the Kawaii mods pretty much. At one point during lockdown I even began designing my own CC. 

Read an article once somewhere that said Sims actually triggers the same neural pathways humans use when socializing. Definitely need more of that in my life.

Inshanity666 has a lot of my must haves

To add to that list I'd also add the first impressions mods
It definitely helps bring life to the sims and opens up storytelling opportunities

Another mod that i havent gotten to play around with much is the Life Decider Mod
I added it to my game and then immediately started a game in a curated save file, so I didn't want to changethe sims in that play thru
In theory it gives ur sims and npcs random skills, jobs, and income so theyre not as stale a saltine crackers when u get to know them.

Sims is fun! I play 4 because I don't have 3 and I don't have 2 Although I miss TS2. I used to have the ultimate collection but it was on an old Origin account which I can't get back into lol.

I have been playing The Sims 4 pretty religiously lately. I mainly use Wicked Whims (mostly for the menstral cycles but for other obvious reasons) and MC Command Center. I have 165 hours overall.

I hadn't played Sims since it originally came out and I am loving Sims 4. I have Wicked Whims, Basemental Drugs and a bunch of animations. Even if I get bored with it I end up playing again within a week or so.

I have 2000+ hours of gameplay on the Sims 4😂 but I think the must have mods are: MC Command Center, Basemental Drugs, and Wicked Whims. And of course all the CC your heart desires.
