To Buy, Or Not to Buy?

As some of you may know, I play sims.  I play a lot of if Sims.  I started with Sims 2 right before Sims 3 came out.  I had almost all the expansion packs for Sims 2 and my computer couldn’t handle it.  I actually completely and totally crashed a computer trying to play Sims 2.  I know, I should have been smarter about it.  

Well, now that Sims 4 is about to be released I am in a debate against myself.  Do I buy it, or wait?  There are obvious reasons to get the new Sims game, but there are also reasons to not get them.  

Though, the more I think about it the less important the reasons not to get it become.

See, the graphics are way better.  Like…tons better.  Just look at this!

You may have to click on the images to make it bigger, but you can obviously see how much nicer Sims 4 is going to be.  Also, how awesome is my Sims 4 Sim?? She just looks so awesome! I want to be her.

Aside from the graphics there are a few things that worry me.  Supposedly, there are no longer any toddlers.  I think I can handle that.  It’s also a mix between the SIms 2 and Sims 3 when it comes to the world around your Sim.  At first this turned me against it completely.  I enjoy being able to move around town in Sims 3.  But, it looks as though Sims 4 has a neighborhood that you can move around it, but work, school, and other things that take up time are no longer a place you can randomly visit.  

The more I think about it the more okay I am with it.  I mean, with buildings, random sims, cars moving around, and animals all over the place, Having a smaller neighborhood is probably for the best.  Less loading times and my computer won’t spaz out trying to run everything.

Why am I even debating this?? It should be simple.  Just buy Sims 4.  Though, that is a lot of money to spend on a game I may not have a lot of time to play.  Someone make this decision for me! 

Have a great day friends.  Tomorrow I will be back with that book review I was telling you about yesterday!

    If I had the money and a pc, I would definitely buy it. I’m so mad, because I have a mac, and there isn’t a version for it yet. But when they release one, I’m going to get it! It looks soooo amazing…ahh I want to make my own sim so bad!!

      I think I am going to wait a little while before I buy it. I have been watching videos of the game from people who were sent an early copy for promoting. It looks like it still has a few kinks in the game. Maybe once they release it for mac it will be better.

    If you are like me, you’ll obsess about it until you have it – unless you stick with a decision once you’ve made it. Normally I’m all about the graphics 🙂 Like any game, wait a month, see how it’s received and then look at the reviews 🙂 My daughter loves sims 3 and she is going to stay with sims 3. Happy simming!

      I think for now I will be sticking with Sims 3 as well. It seems like there are still a few kinks in the game. A few Youtubers I follow have been given early copies for promoting. Watching those videos helped me make up my mind. lol
