I was hyped about sims 4 CAS and new build mode options, but when the game actually came out, a lot of things were unnecessarily removed.
First of all: Open world. I loved the fact we had open world in The Sims 3, it made the game more realistic (it is a life simulation game after all) and it was a huge step forward. And now with better graphics and all, we got back to, what? The sims 1?
Second of all: Freestyle modifications like Create a style tool in build and CAS mode were removed. After all these years it's impossible they didn't notice we like to create our own style and for example, be able to create L type stairs. If you don't want us to do this, AT LEAST import it in game and give us more options/designs to choose from. EA couldn't care less about their fans opinions and wishes.
Third: Prices. Base game doesn't have cars, toddlers or anything and it is instead added in patches? Base game is basically like bread, and if u want a burger you are forced to buy all expansions (which are about the same price as the base game?). There is NO discount if you buy more expansions, so if you like the game and want to play it, you will end up spending at least $300 for all expansions.
I don't know what the point of giving us a few upgraded things and removing all the awesome stuff was, but to me it seems terribly greedy, since I believe all of this will be added again in the sims 5 so people will think "oh, wow.. we have open world with great graphics and so many options, I need this", which should've been there in the first place.
Everyone hates EA for a reason(s). Extremely greedy and don't care about their fans wishes at all
