The Sims 3

The Sims 3 “Looks Really Bad” according to its own Lead Producer

You don’t often see producers being completely honest about the games they’ve worked on, let alone confess that what they were working on looks bad.

Well, that changed with one simple tweet by Grant Rodiek, a producer currently working on The Sims 4. He replied to a question on Twitter which asked Grant about his personal preference between “realism” which was approached with The Sims 3 or “cartoony” which was introduced with The Sims 4. Without hesitation Grant tweeted out the fact that The Sims 3 “looks really bad” and that The Sims 4 looks so much better.

In case you don’t know Grant Rodiek worked on The Sims 3 since it’s first days of production back in 2005. He also worked on several Expansion Packs which were released for The Sims 3.

He additionally confirmed that he is indeed dragging The Sims 3’s visuals and that The Sims Team has done a much better job for The Sims 4.

The Sims 3 and The Sims 4 both have a completely different approach when it comes to visual identity and art style and we definitely don’t want to open up an argument on which game wins at which aspect and feature. Still, it’s pretty interesting to see a confession like this about the game we’ve (probably) all played for so long…
