Out of all the presentations I attended at E3 2014, The Sims 4‘s was my favorite. While I don’t necessarily mean it’s the best game I saw at the show, the game has so much entertainment value that it made for a great demonstration. The presentation perfectly encapsulated all that The Sims 4stands for: fun simulation with more options than you can imagine.
The Sims 4‘s core focus is on the sims that inhabit its virtual world. As such, the first thing shown off was Create A Sim, the tool that allows you to make characters that populate your game world. This part of the game is demonstrative of how much work has gone into making The Sims 4 the best simulation experience of the franchise. It has options that extend from editing of the face, to being able to tug and pull on certain parts of the body to sculpt them. As a result, the presenters were able to show us themselves recreated in the game world which almost perfectly emulated their real selves. Their virtual characters were shockingly similar, and I’d go as far as to say it’s the most elaborate character creation tool I’ve ever seen.
