Sims freeplay being easier isnt necessarily a good thing. I feel like the options are limited, and the lack of challenge and variety is the worst aspect of the game.
It's annoying that the Sims all have the same face and that their personality types apparently have no influence on their behavior. I'd like to take a crack at designing my own clothing, hair, furniture and even animations. I'd like to see the lake behind the dam. I'd like to turn my Sims into vampires and fight off a zombie attack.
But most of all they really need weather and seasons. The Xmas pack better include a white Christmas. (I'm assuming an Xmas pack is in the works of course...)
