That description and outlining of features couldn’t be more vague.

I really hope the “crush” and “love” relation ships from the sims 2 come back. I also hope that the relationships arent mutual. The mutual relationships from Sims 3 always pissed me off.

I really hope they’re not that cartoony. It’s fine if they end up being cartoony but just not as much as the pictures show. Especially the first picture.

I hope it isn’t like Spore where you have minimal options to begin with, and then have to go out and get them….

I would love to see my sims when they are purchasing for grocery. books or even eating on a restaurant! Make that like the sims 1. Oh yes… I would love to see the Sims open up the car door before entering the car!

I think it’s too early for TS4, at the moment I can’t see anything exciting or that new. They should have waited for another 4 or 5 years before bringing the next one out. But as it’s EA, they’re milking it.

Ugh I just wish they went back to the old look. I hate the way the sims look, so cartoonish.I bought sims 3 then switched back to sims 2 because the sims were just to ugly for me to play.

I’m excited for the sims 4 I’ve been getting really bored and annoyed with the sims 3 due to me not because able to download updates, and the game just stop working. Just seeing the screenshots is getting me pumped. Wish it was already 2014 so I can get my copy!

I think it’s sad, that you have made the Simmers so cartoony.. I have seen videos and pictures from the Sims 4, and I have to say, that it disappoints me because, it looks like sims 3 just much more cartoony. It makes the Sims 4 look like a children game, and we are so many teenagers and adults who plays Sims.

I hope there are more new build tools than what we are hearing. Blueprint mode is cool, but I hardly use it. I like the tediousness of changing room and house shapes until I get it just right.
New wall heights would be awesome. It’s really annoying how difficult it is to build a garage attached to a house on a foundation without using cheats.
