Wow only one thing, that's going to be hard. Well here's what bothers me about the sims 3.

No college
moodlets
traits that don't really impact the game
there's no sickness, unexpected death
no aliens
the expansions don't really flow together
open neighborhood with not much to do in it
interactions between sims is lacking
no humor/silliness
gameplay is stale, not too much interesting happens, feels like the movie groundhog day
Focus on 1 sim and not a family
families can move out of the neighborhood on their own
not a lot of interactions between sims
not a lot of things to do for the different age groups
the expansions are more rpg/single sim gameplay focused
wants/fears
to easy to make money
there's no consequences for a sims bad behavior
no walk in restaurants, grocery stores
can't buy your clothes
no greenhouses
no nannys
no gardeners
no bowling allys

Nobody does it better, Steve Jobs you simply are the best. RIP 10-5-2011

But well, it works in my game. Besides I like that they aren't eating for so long, when they have something else to do.

The inappropriate mix matched work uniforms! My sim can't even have his own hair! and many of the uniforms have no shoes, I have even seen a sim in my town who's work uniform was boxers and a shirt!! I have tried making a new career uniform for my sim but it still won't let me use his hair (it is a store bought one) and it still just reverts back the the original weird uniform. My Rock Star is wearing Egyptian robes and when I made a new uniform the next time he showered to go to work the new uniform I had made him turned into Egyptian robes again, just a different color!

There was so much potential from the success of sims and sims2, and it seems slightly wasted on what started off as a huge improvement but became more and more monotonous along the way. I don't find myself playing sims3 for sims3, its more about taking pics for online threads/ comps. If sims2 had the create a style system/personality, I'd probably have reverted.

Career outfits are definitely borked up. I've found my career sims have less problems with weird career outfits if I don't have a performer sim start their career first. When I've let my career sims get their jobs first, their career outfits have been normal. The ones that are weird are my odd self-employeed folks, like writers being assigned stupid career outfits. They don't have career clothing!

When creating a second career outfit, be sure you manually change them into it once. They should then change into it all the time. I had to do this for an athlete who dressed as a top level mad scientist complete with emo hair. When he got promoted to the next career outfit, it updated normally. I'm hoping they fix this bug.

One thing? OK: EA !

By the way, given the sheer number of views of, and answers to this thread (much to the credit of it's author), I would be very much in favor that this thread be made into a sticky!

Just IMHO.

EDIT: Can you believe how many corrections I had to make to this post! HELP!

I choose to play The Sims 3 on a Windows 7 partition (BootCamp) on an iMac 27 inch, Intel Quad Core i5, 2.66MH, 8Gb Memory with a ATI Radeon HD 4850.

Lack of different gameplay options in the EPs.

Although it has been improving VERY slowly, the pace needs to be picked up faster as we're approaching the end of TS3.

Nah, it's not a fact. Have one sim make the food and call the family to dinner. It's very easy.



Still doesn't work, because they won't able be able to get plates of food at the same time. And the eating time is so brief, some of them will be finished eating before the others even start.


In sims 2 the entire family would sit together for about a simhour and talk while they ate, you could invite the principle over and have a nice dinner together. In sims 3 they eat as thought they have to make it to a train which is leaving in about three seconds. ONE bite and they are done...

But what I really LIKE about sims 3 is that they don't have to eat that often, in sims 2 you berely can go away from the kitchen because you got hungry right away, or you had to eat five plates of pancakes before you got full
