when i create a household in the sims 4, i treat them like i would guinea pigs in a laboratory. this is an experiment, so it requires a closed environment. i create a house on a blank lot that is just a concrete box, fill it with premade bedrooms, kitchens, and bathrooms, construct an "entertainment facility" full of video games and TVs, and build an indoor pool for them to exercise in. i include no windows. their only source of light is approximately 20 floor lamps that i turn red to create a harrowing atmosphere. i build one door. once the sims enter the house, i remove the door. they are now trapped. i give myself millions of simoleons in order to provide for my sims' basic needs, and do not get them jobs or let them go to school, because that would require them to leave the house, and that's against the arbitrary rules of the experiment. then i just kind of watch them like they're fish in a tank. this is definitely not how the sims is supposed to be played. and i'm not even trying to kill them. i just don't like the idea that my sims could escape the facility and do things i'm not aware of. and it's kind of funny to imagine them living in a big brother style house that they can't leave where they all have to deal with each other every day, except there's no cameras, and it's forever. 3.5 stars
Rightfully hated when it came out because of how many staples of the franchise weren't included on the base game, and the massive step back of going from open world to lots like in sims 2 again, but I think its somewhat alright-ish now?
All the expansions released do provide some needed variety at least, and with a little modding it can truly last for a long time.
Not a terrible option right now for anyone who wants the sims experience without going back to the older games and avoiding all the technical issues that plague 3.
