You know I find it funny when people say, "Unpopular opinion" and all there doing is preaching the truth.
You're not the only one who thinks this. A lot of people don't like sims 4's plastic barbie doll look (Even myself and I'm not a huge Sims fan). It doesn't help that the graphics look like it was cheaply made. And it's a game published by the guys who gave us Crysis, Medal of Honor, Battlefield, Titanfall, StarWars battlefront, and a crap ton of good-looking games.
Also, everyone who is dark-skinned in that game looks un-needingly shiny, or ashy. They should have done the same thing Sid Meier’s Civilization 6 did. And actually, tried to make realistic skin tones. And more importantly, make the hair look like it’s made out of a different material then the skin. Heck, even animal crossing got this right. The graphics for Sims 4 looks good in cover art but screams of early PS3, late PS2 game graphics in actual gameplay (I know because it looks like that PC game “The Movies” from 2005). Like a cheap HD remaster of 3, but somehow worse in many ways.
But, personally, that’s not my biggest issue with the game. It’s the fact that it seems like EA totally forgot about this game. They would do so much cool stuff with this series. But, 4 seemed like they had no idea what we wanted… Even though we told them so many times. I bet EA had to delete Petabytes of Emails. I always had this feeling of, “It feels like the game is missing something.” every time I played Sims 4. Like being given a delicious pie, but like 1/3 or 3/5 of it was gone.
