14 struggles that New The Sims 4 Players will never have to experience

The Sims 4 has just received a huge wave of new players thanks to the free-to-claim offer that’s currently available now until May 28th, 2019.

It’s no secret that The Sims 4 has come a long way since its release on September 2nd, 2014. The game has been getting new updates regularly that included new content, features and bug fixes that have made the game that it is today.

The game, no matter how many new features it brought to The Sims Franchise was also extremely lacking in content on the release date. No pools, messy user interface and a whole lot of worrying bugs are just some of the things that were present.

Here are just some of many things that players struggled with in the beginning of The Sims 4 that new players will never have to worry about:

1) This blinding loading screen

I had to put on eyedrops before opening up the game just to make sure I don’t go completely blind.

2) Lack of Pools and Ghosts

A video game franchise that’s mostly known for killing Sims off in the pool and controlling the ghosts of those drowned Sims didn’t have either of those things at launch…oof.

3) A Messy User Interface

The    entire    user    interface     had     text     with       at       least    5      spacebars      between       each     word.

4) Demon Babies



5) No Toddlers

When aging up babies would literally jump from their crib and immediately move onto the Child age phase.

6) Dishwashers? Forget about them!

Poor Sims had to wash the dishes exclusively using the sink for about a year.

7) The Family Tree? Nope. Wasn’t a thing.
