Having gotten deep into the sims 3 in the last year or so, the lack of an open world seems like it would suck!
The user content integration and the new conversation system seem wicked cool though, i think its just silly to assume that they could remake everything in the sims 3 plus all the new stuff. I'll wait until 4 is on sale 5 years down the road and dive in.
Oh Comeon... no media has ethics anymore. Its 2014 man! And coming up next here's us pointing a row of cameras at the funeral of this murdered man from missouri.
I would say from game writers, I want content that goes in depth with the games i've loved and more coverage of a wider array of games, not just the latest triple A or Indie platformer where you play as the ghost of a lighthouse keeper's dog. Go check out Euro Truck sim! Or Verdun, a WW1 shooter! Or King Arthur's Gold, a neat retro styled class based multiplayer game where you build a fort while trying to break down other forts! There are so many games out there, and coverage skews from the stupidly obscure to the wildly popular, but rarely lands in the middle. I don't care about industry drama. Period.
