You get a lot with this game atleast in my opinion.
I actually wish I had bought it first!
I love all the new interactions and even the sometimes annoying imaginary friend. I like sending my sims to boarding schools and the furniture is probably some of my favorite.
On the con side, I thought this was the lightest EP. It did not include a new town and it basically just adds relationship interactions.
Since I don't play a lot of families, legacies or generational games I had not planned on buying it. My husband saw it in the store and picked it up for me. Since he was sweet enough to do that I installed it. It is defiantly an EP I could have done without.

You'll get more benefit from it if you play with sims of nearly all ages.
Kids and teens probably have the most additions. And really, they seem bland in my opinion without this EP.
I wasn't highly thrilled at first, but it grew on me and I like it very much.
Reading this thread, I realize how much of this EP that I did not try yet! I didn't try a bachelor/ette party, neither did I use most of the cool outdoors games stuff for kids. Neither did I try the daycare job. I've been playing my little primitive island community so most of this didn't fit. But things are about to change
Even so, I still love this EP for all it's details and for giving some needed depth to family life. My favourite is the walking cane, lol. I DID try the imaginary friend, and it's kinda cool, but a bit creepy.
You get to do Bachelor(ette) parties you can do a wedding with a cake and wedding arch you can get strollers,treehouse, spiral staircase, imaginary friend , day care, boarding schools, walking cane and some more stuff
I just bought it yesterday and I love it. It is my first Sims 3 EP and it is pretty awesome. Their are a lot of cute new interactions between all age groups. If you enjoy the family aspect, then this is for you
I am getting Generations in a couple days and so excited
If your not sure do your research. I have watched a couple videos just to get a feel of generations and I'm defiantly more excited then I would be if I haven't watched them.
i always shorten the lifespan of babies, children, teens, and elders because they're boring. so generations sounds AWESOME to me. i read every review and watch every trailer/video relating to expansions i like, so here's a list of the main things it adds it adds:
party decor (wedding cakes etc)
wild teen parties
bachelor/bachelorette parties (and other parties)
child imaginary friends
adult mid-life crisis
strollers and other baby/toddler stuff
dress up boxes for children
treehouses for kids and maybe teens (and adults can woohoo in them!)
adults can woohoo in showers
I love playing families, so by far this is my favourite EP. It adds a lot of depth to the game in my opinion. You don't get a new town, but I don't really think its needed. The new interactions and objects make the sims' relationships step up to the next level.
