Everything about Sims Mobile(2018) is Evil Itself.

I don't know, from how you all are talking, it sounds just about as expected.

I've played another mobile game, Kingdom Hearts Unchained/Union Cross, since day one, and have seen exactly how scummy mobile games are. $15 a week for VIP in-game benefits which even when they are nice still doesn't even begin to justify a $15 a week price point. $15 for a single RNG pull (imagine that all of The Sims furnitures and objects were locked behind a similar mechanism.). It's just absurd. These are not "micro"transactions, and the games being free to download does not even begin to justify this. It's such a horrendous, never-ending rip-off. I thought EA was bad with The Sims 3 and all of the overpriced content spread out through EPs, SPs, and the Store. "Micro"transaction games make The Sims 3 look saintly, and I know that's hard to imagine. It's an incredibly scary thought.

It sounds like The Sims Mobile is embracing this atrocious money-making scheme whole-heartedly. I'm not even shocked, but I am scared. Scared that this will eventually seep into real console and PC games. Which I know, with EA, it has already began with those things called "loot boxes". The future of gaming isn't looking bright. Oh well, with The Sims 4, EA no longer is making a compelling product to begin with, I suppose.

♫ Keeping this here until EA gives us a proper playable woodwind/brass instrument ♫
