    Personally I’m wary of seeing the addition of any “emotion system” as emotions are the result of reactions to stimuli and come and go quickly. They’re not meant to be used as a motivational basis for living. Indeed, those who make life decisions based on how they “feel” always end up in trouble eventually. I found Sims in 2 and 3 far more natural when it came to emotion as it was tied to their traits rather than objects. Obviously that had it’s limitations but then making life like characters is no easy task. Even the experts can’t agree on all the aspects that come together to make us human.

    I don’t envy Alex’s position trying to create folk that behave like we do. 🙂
