We’re a day removed from Steam’s Autumn Sale, and I’m not afraid to admit I picked up an embarrassing amount of DLC for The Sims 4. It’s not just a great investment in having content for SimsEvermore, but it’s great for those of us who don’t use mods or custom content to fill the pockets of EA for extra stuff to fill out these tiny, tiny worlds.
The DLC For The Sims 4 Was 50%
Except for the newest expansion, all the DLC for The Sims 4 was 50% off. Some of the stuff packs you could’ve grabbed for the price of a non-value-meal-burger at a fast-food restaurant. I’m not going to lie, it was a little depressing adding them to my cart and watching my PayPal account slowly bleed out, but it was worth picking up some stuff I didn’t have.
For Those Who Wanted It All, Sacrifice A PlayStation 5
Everyone’s been trying to get their hands on a PlayStation 5 since it was released last month. However, there have been so many issues with the first wave of systems that we didn’t even bother. Some even used the money they saved for one to make the grandiose investment into The Sims 4. That’s because, for all the DLC (even at 50% off), you’re setting yourself back about $450. That’s almost the price of the regular PlayStation 5 (though, you could get the digital version for the same price plus taxes).
Was It Worth It?
Only time will tell if it was worth picking up as much DLC as I did for The Sims 4. Keep in mind, I’m not a builder, so having all the extra stuff for building or decorating homes was lost on me. I do like creating Sims with new hairstyles and clothes. I also like having some of the other worlds unlocked because Oasis Springs is depressingly tiny.
In hindsight, I could have saved some of it for The Sims 5, which, hopefully, should come around early 2021.
