City Living: 5 objects we should’ve gotten instead of a talking toilet

The Sims 4 City Living Expansion Pack introduces a new object with gameplay never-before seen in The Sims Franchise. Yup, I’m talking about the talking toilet. This object lets your Sim multitask like never before – allowing your Sim to take care of their bladder need while watching a holographic image . Yeah, this object is somewhat fun to play with but compared to what we could’ve got in The Sims 4 City Living this object is just a filler in the build mode catalog.

Here are 5 objects that I’m sure all of us would appreciate more and play more regularly:

1) The Elevator

The Sims 4 City Living ruined a perfect opportunity to bring functional elevators to the game. Both The Sims 2 and The Sims 3 brought functional elevators that, even though they didn’t do much, were still fun for your Sims to woohoo in and travel faster between different stories.

City Living has elevators in apartments and penthouses, but they only serve decor purposes. When you click on them to go downstairs your Sim will quickly teleport from their apartment to outside. If only The Sims Team didn’t spend so much time on animating the talking toilet and focused on animating elevators. Seriously though, I’d be just as happy if they didn’t bring nothing new except allow Sims to get in and travel up and down.

2) The Blender

Seriously though, why was creating a talking toilet of a bigger priority than introducing an object that was often used in both The Sims 2 and The Sims 3?!

3) Small Telescope

Placing The Sims 4 telescopes that are 6×5 big on apartment balconies just isn’t doable. Was a talking toilet really a bigger necessity than a telescope that would easily fit on any lot?

4) It’s MYSHUNO!

It’s MYSHUNO is an object that originally came with The Sims 2. It sort of played like a bingo – Sims would pull out a plumbob out of a tank and read it out loud. If you’re playing with a group, Sims will record their numbers and repeat the process until a winning Sim shouts ”MYSHUNO”. Although this object isn’t much of an use for your Sim’s everyday needs, having Sims gather around in San MYSHUNO to play this game would certainly make much more sense than watching your Sim talk to their toilets from time to time.

5) Washing Machine

It seems like The Sims Team had plans to re-introduce washing machines which made their debut in The Sims 3 Ambitions. Still, it seems like nothing can compete against talking toilets…
