THE ULTIMATE GUIDE: What Pack for The Sims 4 Should I get?

We see the same posts every single day asking “What pack should I get?” “This pack or that pack?” “Which packs do you recommend?” “Which pack is the best pack?” The truth is the answer will be different depending on what you like to do in the game, so you’re likely to get a lot of recommendations for packs you won’t like. 

I’ve compiled a pretty exhaustive guide to help players make a decision based on what THEY like and not necessarily what everyone else likes. It goes over the difference between expansions, game packs, and stuff packs (very important to know before you buy), and offers a complete list of recommended packs based on gameplay interests, build and CAS styles, and main features. 

What’s the Difference Between an Expansion, Game Pack, and Stuff Pack? 

Before you start looking at packs to buy, you should know the difference between the three types of packs because they vary greatly in both price and amount of content. Knowing what type of pack you’re looking for will help narrow down your search right away. 

  • Expansion Packs: These packs are the big, juicy, meaty packs that come with the most content. They often (but not always) come with a new full-size world, as well as a very large amount of new gameplay centered around a broad theme that appeals to a large number of people, such as tropical islands, active careers and shopping, seasons, and university. They also come with hundreds of new Build/Buy items and dozens of new CAS items. The downside is that they are the most expensive packs, at $40 USD. 
  • Game Packs: Game packs are like mini-expansions. They are also primarily gameplay-focused, but are typically themed around more niche interests, like supernatural-themed gameplay, vacations, and family dynamics. They usually (but not always) come with a mini-world of about 5 lots and plenty of new Build/Buy and CAS items. These packs are more moderately priced at $20 USD. 
  • Stuff Packs: Unlike expansions and game packs, stuff packs are pretty much what they’re called; just packs of stuff. They are more focused on bringing a small handful of new objects and CAS items to the game than gameplay, but all stuff packs do come with one or two new objects that offer some unique gameplay. Stuff packs are the smallest of all the packs and come with a dozen or so new items, and a few new CAS pieces. They do not come with new worlds or a significant amount of new gameplay. They are the cheapest packs, priced at $10 USD. 

Down below you can find a list of different The Sims 4 aspects as well as their recommended Packs for each different category:

Please do not message me asking to add/remove packs from certain sections or giving your suggestions for which packs to list under which sections.

    • The Sims Mobile isn’t quite the same experience, but can still be a fun alternative! If you own an Xbox One or PS4, you can also grab the base game for up to 80% off when it’s on sale and play on your console. :)

  • Love the guide, but isn’t Tiny Living supposed to be more Scandinavian, ‘hygge’ rather than Japanese modern?

    • For the build items, yes, but Tiny Living’s contemporary Japanese style is listed under the CAS section. :) The CAS portion of the pack is primarily One-Mile-Wear which is a popular contemporary Japanese trend. The build items are Hygge-inspired.

  • The post is awesome! However, I do not recommend buying My First Pet SP as the clothing is just terrible and the terrariums are way too big. Besides, this way we show the developers we do not support the developers’ greed.

    • Claudia is correct. The point of the master guide is to give unbiased info on each pack so players can decide for themselves. The guide doesn’t promote MFP. It just lists all its main features and what kind of gameplay the content is best suited for.

  • Is there any chance you could update it to indicate whether its an expansion, game or stuff pack that each title is referring to, so it’s easy to see right off to bat? Perhaps an [E], [S], or [G] before the title?

  • Thanks, it’s a great article. However, I think you should change the Vintage Glamour stuff note. I think it’s more 1990s (furniture, clothes) than 1920s.
    Amazing job!

    • @ Yulia I think 1920 is appropriate and more accurate. Vintage was inspired by an old Hollywood theme than the 90s. The globe bar and vanity are definitely more “old school” than 90s as are some of the clothing styles. The new tv classic channel is in black and white which was common for that time era 1920s than 90s.

  • Thank you so much for your detailed article. It’s really helped me to make up my mind on which to purchase next :)

  • Tiny Living has toddler items. I don’t think I saw that on the list for toddlers. Any chance you could fix this?
