One comment

  1. Oh, this game is still being worked on? Oh right, greed and bad executive decisions are EA’s bread and butter.
    So, which established feature from a previous game are they going to leave out, this time?

    “Sometime in April, EA released an expansion pack to the life simulation video game officially titled “The Sims 4: Get to Work,” which provided gamers three brand new careers.”

    Only EA would consider adding three jobs into the game as an expansion pack. I’ve looked at the features for that “expansion”. There’s really not much more going on than those three careers. It’s pathetic and stinks of corporate greed.
    I haven’t purchased a game from them since the abysmal Dragon Age 2 flop, and I won’t ever again. If you love quality games and good customer care, then you shouldn’t buy from EA, either.
