But without these "store items" Sims 3 would be much less fun, in my opinion. 

And yes, the "traditional" technical problems in Sims games are too well known to need further elaboration.  WhatDidUJustCallMe?  

I was talking strictly about the base games, since everything else comes down to the size of your pockets, which in my case aren't very deep. The Sims 4 lacks pretty much every major (or even remotely big) feature The Sims 2 and 3 brought to the series.

And they always say that why some Major Features are not in The Sims 4 is because of the "Emotions"
I don't know why would they add it if some major features are not in The Sims 4? 
I Really don't care about the emotions, What I care is the "Life" gameplay, Not the Emotion Gameplay. I care about the Life stages, not the emotions. And Fine, I Love how Sims 4 was made but really it lacks some of the major feature that what made The Sims 3 base game look better than The Sims 4 base game. But I do agree that more updates and EPs, SPs and GPs will arrive soon.
It lacks some minor features (That I like to get it back):
1. Sleeping Animations - Sims only in one Position in a bed? Doesn't look realistic.
2. Burned Food cause of low cooking skill - Look EA I don't care about how it taste, I care about how it looks. Duh. 
3. Teen Height - Doesn't Look really realistic too, Unless they add Too Tall Height and Too Small Height.
4. Healthy Children - Sims 3 has more healthy children compared to The Sims 4. Look at the Difference. 
5. More Romantic Sims - Haven't you noticed that when you do the Passionate Kiss Interaction, they don't look like kissing? (Because of their freaking nose)
6. Fears - Why won't they get it back? 


But Sims look noobs, I promise. They are not smart, They look noobs. (IDK but just what I saw about Sims)

Emotions are nothing new. I'm pretty sure they existed in The Sims 2 and The Sims 3 as well (maybe The Sims as well, don't remember). Difference is The Sims 3 and 3 didn't display a big colorful text or a "new" interaction for every emotion. I say "new" because the only thing new about them is the option itself, The Sims 4 features 1 animation for every 10 interactions.

Body sculpting, also a big "new" feature in The Sims 4 is really just the absence of sliders, doesn't really improve anything, actually makes it more tedious if you ask me, since I have no idea what dragging a certain bodypart will do to it. I don't know whether they did this because it was easier than implementing a slider interface or simply because they wanted to reinvent the wheel for no particular reason, but it's still pretty dumb.

I believe multi-tasking was also something they kept boasting about pre-release. This one actually existed in it's proper form in The Sims 2 and 3, it was only slightly improved in The Sims 4. The key word being "slightly".

Interesting viewpoint. What I myself find the biggest weakness in the TS4 base game is the lack of an "open neighborhood". Everything else would still go through for me as something like "OK, let's just see...". The fact that EA are now releasing additional base game content via the official game updates, is also interesting and might be a response to negative criticism on the lack of features that were there in earlier Sims titles.

While I'm not that excited about TS4, I wouldn't be too sure if I liked only the base game of TS3 that much more than the TS4 one. What is clear is that it's going to take quite a while until enough content has been released for Sims 4, so that it becomes really enjoyable.

And of course, no need to buy anything from TS4 either. The currently circulating cracked Sims 4 games work pretty fine (provided you configured your anti-virus/firewall system correctly), and that's all I myself wish for. Smile

The lack of open world gameplay is one thing. Admittedly, since The Sims 3's worlds were so dynamic yet completely open it's no surprise it could cause a core meltdown inside your PC. But with the proper optimization (which The Sims has always lacked, let's be honest) it could have at least worked well on most mid-range and high-end PC's.

However The Sims 4 doesn't just lack open neighborhoods. The neighborhoods aren't even customizable, and they are actually smaller than in the first Sims base game! Not to mention there is no neighborhood view anymore, it's been replaced by a map reminiscent of childhood coloring books, like on the console versions of The Sims 3, or a mobile game.

In fact, The Sims 4 in general feels like something that was designed for mobile platforms, then they thought "hmm, let's add 1080p support and promote it to main installment!".

Now im bored.
I tried waiting a while, and getting back in to it, but im just feeling it anymore. Anyone else feel like this?

I was really concerned that getting into the sims 4 slump would happen to me.

So far though it hasn't and I'm grateful. I play the game at least once a day for 2 or 3 hours and have been playing for the last month and a half. I haven't gotten anywhere close to where you are though, so congrats. I think I've completed like..3 aspirations? None of my sims are at the top of their career (unless the game puts them there). I have a max 3 generations right now. But I am still enjoying myself.

I think one of the things that has helped me is I definitely do not know everything in the game. I know basically nothing about emotions. Example I just found out that watching the Action channel on TV is supposed to make your sims energized (clearly mine don't watch it often enough). But I did that on purpose. I'm well aware there are a ton of articles on how to give your sims certain emotions but when you know everything it's boring. 

I agree with what a lot of people have said, just explore. Make a new family, do a new challenge, make up a challenge (that's what I did), and have at it.

Good luck Smile
