You start The Sims 4 by creating a Sim – an avatar of a person, possibly modelled on yourself but thinner, more famous, and with cooler hair – with the help of a rather comprehensive character development package. You can begin the game with your Sim at any age, from tan infant to senior, and you can assign them a variety of traits – neat, artistic, malicious, etc. This will determine how they behave.
Game Play and Characters
When your Sim is complete, you’ll be granted a small sum of money to spend on a home in one of the communities available to you. Given your limited financial resources, you don’t have much of a choice. But after you’re a billionaire, you can throw money around like confetti, buying, or creating extravagant mansions with every conceivable feature. You’d better get used to doing your own laundry, repairing your own broken appliances, and making your own macaroni and cheese until then.
If you want to live in comfort, you’ll need money, and luckily, finding a job in The Sims 4 is a lot easier than it is in real life, because you can pretty much do whatever you want. Once you’ve found work, you’ll develop a routine. Your Sim wakes up, gets out of bed, combs their hair, goes to work for eight hours, returns home, eats dinner, watches an episode of Gordon Ramsay’s Kitchen Nightmares, and then goes back to bed, ready to do it all over again the next day.
While you might prefer to stay in bed an extra twenty minutes than wake up to make scrambled eggs and toast in real life, doing so here will help you level up your cooking talent, allowing you to prepare more sophisticated dishes in the future. In this way, anything from working out to reading a book to fixing a leaking toilet is linked to a skill.
As a result of the simple RPG systems in play, you always feel like you’re accomplishing something.
If you think about it, The Sims has always been really wonderful. It differs from most other types of escapism in that it turns the mundane duties we despise in real life into a game. The Sims 4 is the latest and greatest instalment in the long-running franchise, and there is nothing else like it on the computer game market. It’s the most accurate representation of daily living on the market.
