        My girlfriend literally spends 4 hours a day trying on different dresses she has worn over a 100+ times to look at herself in the mirror constantly. Women are NEVER going to give up fashion.

        It's akin to men starting to hate porn, just doesn't happen.

        Those are trannies and ugly women pretending hot girls don't actually love playing dress up, they just cant because they are ugly so they made up that lie, not to mention people are poorer
        Before wifes controlled the house, if they were hot they would go shopping and dressing themselves pretty

      Socialization stimulation. Hormones affect how you think and estrogen makes you more susceptible to propaganda. Their thoughts generates more impulses that desire social interaction and their brains give more of a chemical reward for doing so. This is why they always fall for propaganda politically and are the target demographics of impulse spenders economically.

    >Sims is perfectly ripe to be one of the best examples of "emergent gameplay" on the market
    >Sim AI is so fucking bad and repetitive you could pretty much predict which of the 4 options your Sim will perform on repeat
    My biggest gripe with the fucking game. I love the customization, and just life sim shit in general. My second biggest issue would be that all Sims are too nice. Children's movies have more hostile bullies in them then in the Sims, and if you want to mod more negative impacts modders are autismos that go straight to
    >BLOW HEAD OFF WITH SHOTGUN
    >TWERK TO DEATH
    when I just want some more lying/manipulation/punching/theft. The overall positivity reinforces the predictable gameplay.

    Because it's a world they understand.

    In most settings they would just become prostitutes lmao. Post-apocalyptic? Badass archer women are a work of fiction, irl if things ever got that bad women would just spread their legs. So they can't relate to that. Fantasy? Women are not nerdy enough for that shit. Men are inclined to want to know every single detail about something, because they are the maintainers of society. Women just wait until things are built.

      Why would you move from Sims 4 to a competitor? If you are a huge fan you probably already sunk $1000 and much more hours into the game, so going to a clone with a lower budget would feel like a downgrade.

      is right, there needs to be a big change from EA for there to be an opportunity for a competitor to come in.
      Although, I'm surprised there hasn't been a low budget Sims clone on PC yet. There's some games with promising artstyles on mobile for the genre but they haven't been used for a fully-fledged Sims clone yet

        Why would you look at the choice between Sims and a competitor purely from the POV of someone whose already bought into 4?

        They know they'll be expected to leave it all behind for 5 anyway

        • 2 weeks ago
          Anonymous

          Because the playerbase for Sims 4 is huge. There's more incentive for new players to go there and join the community since it's moddable. If 5 was made unmoddable that would be a great time for a competitor to come in and steal their thunder, but that's if people don't just stay on 4 instead. It would take a lot for a new game to stand on its own two feet in the Sims market

            Didn't they say that the next game was going to be a live service title? As if the game isn't that already with the sheer amount of DLC it gets every year.

        Because sims 4 is complete trash. Hell, I got into the series with 4 and thought it was so shit I tried the older games and liked them way more. A competitor would have to seriously fuck up for it to be worse. The only thing sims has left right now is a monopoly and the brand name.

    I obviously am not alone in this, but I have a huge hate-love relationship with The Sims 4, mainly due to how absolute SHIT the game is but at the same time the mods are batshit and so much fun
    But still nothing beats the content The Sims 2 had and the jump to this one from The Sims 1. For one, I loved being able to make your own little store or setting up a yard sale of all the garbage you handcrafted

      The expansion packs just add new music on top of the old one. I think you can individually select which tracks play in the settings, but I'm not sure if that's only for the radio stations or for build/buy music too.

      Still don't know why they never bothered to bring that scheme over to later games. I remember it working quite well for the time. You could make them go from a casual walk, light jog and full sprint if you zoom the camera out. I didn't realize how much of a one off that feature was until I played the PC versions.

          I don't use that shit anymore because I've been trying to fix my life and not be a degenerate coomer anymore.
          However, I'll tell you that you can find links to pretty much all animations of consequence on the wicked whims website. They are not all made equal. I'd even go as far as to say that the majority of them are dogshit.
          You can find curated packs in certain places, but none of them are any good because most people don't really have standards.
          The only real option is to download packs one by one and decide whether or not you like them.

        Yes, and I also invited her over to my tiny trailer whenever I could. My precious little semen demon had no other friends to steal her away from me either.

    Misogyny aside, anyone else find women really cute when they're not being butthurt and malicious?

    I just find their obsession with clothes, interior decor, etsy type stuff, small fluffy animals, overdose of empathy, pouting at you, how sloppy they get when drunk, randomly crying at sad adverts when they're hormonal so cute.

    I love women bros.

      yeah women are nice to be around when they arent being cunts but when they are being cunts you would rather be literally anywhere else
      unfortunately you never know when they will be a cunt or what will set them off

      I just wish they didn't cry all the time. I never cry, so crying confuses me.

      I hate how every random sim I meet has a nose piercing, tinted glasses, a sundress, torn stockings, and elbow length gloves. Or overalls and high heels. Or a chunky cable knit sweater and shorts.

      I live in the 3rd world Yurop. Do people in the West look like that or is it just the devs' twisted imagination? I regularly see videos of Californians dressing like the Sims, but I imagine these are all (wannabe) influencers or relatively poor people looking for drip.

      I hate women. Miserable, overly emotional attention addicts. Tomboys are the only good ones.

        anon, there's nothing wrong with pirating old games that EA fill with DLC specifically to gouge your wallet.

          Same. Glad I checked the responses and saw the correction because I was about to go on a tirade over that not being true at all.

    Gee I don't know why appealing to their most basic instincts, wants and desires attracts them. It will forever be a mystery.
