There’s nothing inherently wrong with The Sims 3, the latest in the line of Electronic Arts (EA) life simulation games that allow players the opportunity to build, manipulate and guide the lives of created individuals, called “Sims,” as they progress through the same trials and tribulations many of us experience. The game, which was released to strong reviews and sold more copies in its opening week than any other EA game in history, is by all accounts and purposes a big hit. So why is it on this list, you may ask? Well, we just don’t see what all the fuss is about, especially when considering the game in relation to its predecessor, The Sims 2. Sure, The Sims 3 might rate as a smoother play with a few interesting quirks thrown in, but overall it progressed very little and does nothing to separate itself from the game that came before. Factoring in the egregious amount of expansion packs made available by EA (all of which cost money, an absolutely criminal example of theft by a company known for pulling stunts like this), we just can’t get on board with The Sims 3 being ranked as one of the better games to be released in recent memory.
