With so much more, well, work to do, the expansion bolsters a core game that was a bit sparse at launch. At the same time, it’s hindered by the limitations of The Sims 4, which make it very hard to balance careers, family, and fun.
In what seems like a fever dream straight from my brain, Geek-Art and French Paper Art Club have teamed up to put on The Sims Official 15th Anniversary Art Show at Espace oppidum in Paris. The pieces will also be available in very limited prints following the show, available on the French Paper Art Club site (which has a ton of really gorgeous prints besides these Sims pieces).
It’s hard to keep that spark of originality going when you’re entering the fourth iteration of a series; developer Maxis tried a number of new things with The Sims 4, and while some things make for most welcome changes, others feel like complete steps backwards.
