The Sims 4 is an exciting game. It was released many years ago, but it’s still delightful thanks to the numerous updates and expansions the developer published over the years.
Though fans of the franchise are eager to get their hands on The Sims 5, the developer hasn’t given us an official release date, so we’ll have to be patient and wait for updates.
In the meantime, what better way to kill time is there than playing The Sims 4? However, there are some problems with the game that are downright irritating and can potentially ruin the experience for some players. In this article, we’ll talk about just that! Here are our picks for the most annoying problems in The Sims 4 that require immediate attention from the developer.
Where’s The Baby?
A significant percentage of the Sims 4 players isn’t happy with the newborn babies being treated as objects. Some don’t mind that as it was incredibly challenging to meet their demands in past games, but the literal objectification feels unhealthy. Have you ever lost your baby after moving to a new house? Of course not, because you can find it in your family inventory.
The more you think about it, the more irritating it becomes.
There are many issues related to spellcasters. CAS issues aren’t limited to their eyes, not functioning as they should. Additionally, they may get same makeup in the catalogue, born spellcasters sometimes don’t get the occult face customization, and they forget spells when the player saves them in the designated library.
The spellcasters are quite glitchy, and it’s a shame as they are a recent addition to the game.
Many players reported that the Freelancer Career is broken, as some daily tasks can’t be done without resorting to mods like UI cheats extension. Some players find it amusing how unintentionally it reflects the unfortunate aspects of being a real freelancer.
The Emotion System
Back in 2014, when Rachel Franklin, the game’s executive producer at that time, introduced the first gameplay video and bragged about the “Emotions system.”
However, the system is arguably a fail, as the characters are mostly joyful and rarely react proportionally to the gravity of the situation.
Many players are unhappy with the way celebrities function. Such reports prevented many from getting the Get Famous expansion pack. Regardless of the situation, Sims always get astonished by a nearby celebrity.
Also, some famous Sims get the “React in Disgust” interaction that, though it usually doesn’t manifest, still interrupts them from whatever they are doing.
