LMFAO and youre all excited for this, too. PFFFFAHAHAH
I just feel like I should comment on this & address the â€œcomplaintâ€
The super-realistic games in this image have gameplay mechanisms & storylines that rely on IMMERSION, being the first-person view in a fictional world. Â You have to reasonably imagine that the characters are real people to get the feelings that the game designers want you to have as you experience the storyline. Â Youâ€™re supposed to be emotionally attached to these characters (love, hate, etc) & the easiest way to accomplish that response is to portray them as realistically as possible.
The Sims is not about immersion. Â It is set in a semi-omnipotent view, not a first-person view & is about PLAYING GOD with little digital people, which in some cases is going to require you to be emotionally removed &/or detached from the charactersâ€¦. like when theyâ€™re burning to death or drowning for lack of a pool ladder, as Sims tend to do. Â The simplistic, cartoony style lends itself to this type of gameplay. Â For the game as itâ€™s intended to be played (not a building tool or an interior decorating tool or a fashion tool or a way to create artsy pics of digital people) THIS ART STYLE IS A GOOD, LOGICAL CHOICE.
Apples to oranges, yo.
Iâ€™d like to add that Iâ€™m pretty sure this isÂ not the final look of sims anyway? Â Sure they wonâ€™t look like Lara Croft, but there will be improvements, not to mention CC! Â Why didnâ€™t anyone make such comparisons with TS3? Â ..Why is anyone so obsessed with hyper-realistic sims anyway? :/
Those are very definitely not â€˜averageâ€™ games either. Â Theyâ€™re extremely high-budget AAA-games, with specific target audiences. Â The Sims has another, very different specificÂ target audience. Â (I get your point, I just feel like nitpicking because youâ€™re annoying.)
And using fucking Diana Allers of all people from Mass Effect 3?? Â She is literally the most uncanny character I could think of. Â Why not Kaidan? Â Or Joker? Â Or heck, default Sheploo? Â Makes me think that OP either didnâ€™t play ME3, or is just taking the piss.
â€¦YouÂ are just taking the piss, arenâ€™t you. Â Regardless, in the end youâ€™ll be all over TS4 anyway.
