    Why the HELL is this game so dumbed down? Is their target audience 8 year olds?? I was reading and looking into it today and wow is it limited. They claim the way you create things and what not intuitive (a word that doesn't mean much anymore anyways) but all it is is a kid's game. Obviously EA forgot The Sims was basically THE casual game. It was THE game people who weren't gamers, saw, and went: Oh wow! and played for hours on end. But this is their way of grabbing the casual market? More like kid market... Anyways, I'm sure most of you guys would rather play the Sims you all know and love instead of having a dumbed down version where you restore a town and build with LEGOs. I suggest to everyone (unless you are around the grand age of 8 or under) to not purchase this game as a slap in the face to EA and their stupidity.

    As far as I know, MySims and The Sims have a world of difference. So it's sort of wrong to compare the two, when it comes to audiences. It seems like the stuff you get in MySims is more childish then the stuff you get in The Sims. Example? MySims: Normal Household items, Chairs, Tables, Appliances. The Sims: Heart shaped bed that has a "Vibrate" option, Hot tub for multiple people, Bars, Pools, and that Mechanical Bull. See what I mean?
    MySims is directed at a younger audience then The Sims, but that doesn't mean you and I can't enjoy it either.

    But as far as "dumbed down" goes, I think you made a mistake. You're assuming MySims and The Sims started out alike, but then MySims got more chilidish. Which is, in a way, true, but early screenshots/videos never really depicted this. So in actuality it was "kiddy" to begin with, but you nor I never noticed it.

    So you assumed it was like The Sims. But with new photo/video evidence popping up, you realised it was much different. So you called it "dumbing down" when all it really did was stay the same.

    Umm Jimmer, sorry but I'm gonna have to go with Sovieto on this one, the game really looks dissapointing and it SHOULD be like the Sim games we all know and love...so much...lol

    This game is and, obviously, always was geared for kids, it was never dumbed down, so you can't turn around and say, "oh yea it shud be like sims you nubs" when you realize it's geared for younger audiences.

    Similar thing happened to me, I looked at Jaws Unleashed for the PS2, and I thought it woulda been a blast. But after I saw videos and read articles about gameplay??....All I could say was this::sad:

    So, unfortunately It's a disappointment, but the original post stated that this was a dumbing down, which it really wasn't at all.

    Are you kidding??? The game was never for younger kids....IT HAD A T RATING FOR CRYING OUT LOUD. There was partial nudity (not really anything shown but the idea...) and you could kill the people if you wanted...tell me that is a game for 8 yr olds....get your facts straight

    they could create a version without all the things they think would make it a T version, dosent mean they had to do this.

    Honestly, I don't mind that it's a kids game. It still looks fun, and let's face it: with all the expansions, user content and everything else that Sims 2 has right now, a barebones rehashing on the Wii wouldn't cut it.

    I'll reserve judgement of MySims until I play it... but I will admit that collecting "essences" is probably going to be nothing but a source of frustration.

    I agree with Jimmer. This isn't "The Sims". This is "MySims". It's like comparing "Hotel Mario" and "Super Mario World".

    It's not like they're completly abandoning "The Sims" on the Wii you know...
    The Sims 2: Castaway is coming to it.
    "MySims" is just a spinoff sort of thing.

    I don't know, I wouldn't say it sucks just yet. A toned down version might just be what the franchise needs. I'm not saying it's going to be awesome, becuase I have never EVER liked the Sims lol.

    I'm actually interested in the Sims game where your on a deserted island.

    I liked the Sims 2 but I'm starting to get a little tired of the format, expansions do provide a novelty but IMO they're getting a little old. My Sims may be a fresher experience, I'll have to give it a rent and see. I totally agree with Tairusu on this one:

    Made you angry? +1 rep for jimmer than ;) I suggest you dont visit forums anymore because this is bount to happen again
    Jimmer is totaly right. He never said he liked the game. He only said that mysims is a different franchise. Yes it looks like its for kids. But its like Super mario 64 or mario sunshine and compare that to paper mario. Paper mario looks childish as well. Its a totaly different game than mario sunshine.

    And thats all that jimmer is trying to say. That you shouldnt compare an apple to a pear.

    To me it looks like you people ( marioman and Sovieto ) are like: OMG WTF BBQ He likes mysims but that game is lame.

    Dude, don't start things back up that allready died, and you should get your facts straight too. FIRST OFF I missinerperted what jimmer was trying to say in my earlier quote, really it could of gone two ways. Secondly, i never said I didn't like Jimmer because he thought My Sims was cool, we were just dissagreing. We are aloud to do that, am I right? And thirdly, the point I'm overall trying to make is that yes it is a game geared for younger kids, but all of the new people that sims orginally brought into the gaming world are going to think that this game is like the others and alot of those people are older teens and adults. But when they start to play the game they will relalize that it isn't as fun as it was before. This could hurt the future market for another future Sims game. And don't tell me I must never be on forums, I'm on here more than you, I just have gotten alot of posts deleted.

    P.S. Don't respond to this because I'm finished arguing and won't even bother to look at what you say

    Personally I think this is a rent and see game, it could be really entertaining or it could be a complete flop, we won't know until it is released though.
