MysterD maybe you would actually think Sims 4 was lame by, you know, your own opinion if you played it. But you haven't.
You should probably at least make the effort to try something before you go ragging on it instead of hopping on a popular internet haterade bandwagon with no actual first hand experience.
I'd also point out that when Sims 3 came out a bunch of people were running around going 'omagerd Sims 3 suxx 2 totes better'. A few people Idiotekque still do Idiotekque say that.
As a CAG, why would I even drop $30-70 on a brand-new game like such?
Especially one that's currently being ripped to shreds by gamers + reviews...namely b/c it lacks content?
This is exactly why we put stock in game reviewers + gamers' opinions.
This way, if we find out a game's buggy, unstable, doesn't perform well on certain hardware, lacks content, or whatever - we don't get burned on spending too much on a game that doesn't deserve my time + money.
We sit - and wait it out.
Though, if EA has a Free Game-Time Weekend for Sims 4 - you damn right, I'm gonna give it a shot + critique it w/ my own 2 cents.
BTW, I bought Sims 3 when it hit $20 - and I loved the hell out of it, quite a while back. That was before I bought any expansions for it.
I have Late Night, Showtime + Generations for S3 expansions, BTW - all that I've spent each in the $10 or less arena for these expansions.
I have Diablo III still in the backlog is ROS that much better and worth it at $19.99?
D3 was good, but quite flawed. Back when I played it (WAY before Loot 2.0 patch) - story in campaign wasn't that great (Act 1-4); action felt + looked great; but the game felt quite dumbed-down in many ways from D2 (you have no control over number + stats of character when level-up; you just unlock new skills and/or runes to change the skill at each level; less skills on your hotbar than ever before). It was...disappointing.
RoS is a game-changer. Loot-drops are TONS better now (since Loot 2.0); Act 5 of Campaign is really good + doesn't waste much words + dialogue in the story (unlike D3 base-game); and Adventure Mode (which opens up game-world, makes it free-form, and you get objectives tossed at you in areas) is addictive as can be.
