    I think one of the things I don’t like about mood and emotions in the Sims 4 is that it kinda takes away from your own interpretation of their story as a player.

    It might be more “unrealistic” in the Sims 2 to not have sims react as strongly to certain life changing events, but it does have the benefit of allowing you to come up with your own story and interpretation of how your sim is responding.

    With emotions I feel a bit like the game is pushing a narrative on you.

    I’m not quite saying not to have emotions in Paralives, but I do hope they’re less overwhelming than they are in The Sims 4. (or more nuanced) Emotions in that game kinda feel like an oppressive force to me. (like how when they’re happy they have a permanent smile plastered over their face, that kind of thing)
