We kick things off with the Sims 4 today, in a German trailer that is full of love. And the colour green.
Rachel Franklin from Maxis is on the stage to talk The Sims 4. "All-new emotion based gameplay" Franklin says, will make the Sims different in this incarnation. Sims will now have emotional states that impact how they act in the game, especially on their “mind, body and heart”.
Franklin also shows how Sims can now be customised, from facial features to how much junk in the trunk they have. “It’s like sculpting with clay”, Franklin says. We then get to see how even selecting a certain walking style can affect their personalities.
"Sims can’t flirt if they’re furious" Franklin says, while playing god with the psyche of a Sim. Looks like emotions are going to run rampant in The Sims 4. And that ain’t a bad thing.

Screw you hatas of all things Sims. This is a day one purchase for me. Nothing like a nice long simming session to calm the nerves.

Sounds Awesome! I’m a long time fan of the Sims and seeing the progression from Sims 1 to the upcoming sims 4 is mind blowing! Can’t wait

I approve of this. It will add even more character to them and make them even more awesome.

I have mix feeling on this game, the emotions don’t really seem like anything new but some of the new features seems really cool. Interesting choices as far as body customization goes, I hope the engine is better optimized this time also. I’m not sure if they really pushed themselves to make the experience better from Sims 3, lets see if this game will still reveal exciting new features since they still have until next year to make it more enjoyable.

I love the sims and think this game sounds awsome however they should add some features from other expantion packs from the past sims to make it better.
