Favorite Expansion pack? Poll reset to add SHOWTIME. :)
« on: January 13, 2012, 06:53:30 PM »
I'm curious if anyone has a favorite expansion pack?  Least Favorite? 

Personally I really like Ambitions, I like the new careers, and skills,sculpting, inventing.

Least favorite - Late Night.   I've had only bother, plus the paparazzi... ugh.

Sorry to start up a topic if there was already one... I've not seen it before, so I thought I'd start one.

Actually Pam there isn't. There are threads about which should someone buy implying what is the favorite but none directly asking.

My favorite is probably WA. I only have that and ambitions and I like it more because it adds more to the game.

My favorite by far is Pets. I'm a little bias, since Cat Person is one of my five traits, and I'm a real life pet/animal owner and lover.  ;D It was my favorite for TS2, but the TS2 version is a major disappointment now, but that's because the pets are uncontrollable.

Second favoirte would have to be Generations. I'm not really a family person when it comes to Sims. I like Single's and pets, but I still love the new objects, and occult creature that came with it.

I would tie WA, AMB and LN third. I like all three, and don't dislike any expansion pack, really. I think with all expansion packs, there are features I like and will use, and other parts of the EP I don't like, and chose not to use those features in my game. For example, I don't like Laundry in Ambitions or Punishments in Generations, because it makes the game too realistic for my taste. I don't like laundry in the real world, so there's no need to make my Sims do it. They've had enough problems on their hands.  :P

Thanks, Sportsfan.  I guess I was thinking of those other threads.

I'd have to say that Pets is my favorite so far.  Having cats and dogs brings a whole new feeling to the game and I love it!  I'm a cat person, but I like playing the dogs, too.  I haven't done much with horses yet.  I'm sure they will be fun, though.

To be honest, I can't pick a favorite. They're all so good. If I had to pick, though, World Adventures would win. WA is just so fun!

Hmm, that's a tough one. I think Late Night is awesome, that was the one I really wanted to get as soon as I heard about EPs. But I also like all the others too! Ugh I just can't decide.  ;D  :P
If at first you don't succeed, call it version 1.0.

Currently Ambitions and Generations are my favorite EP's. They just add so much.

Oooh, toughie. I'd say Ambitions wins out for me because there's lots of content and it's not too invasive. Pets and Late Night would be a close tie for second; both are excellent expansion packs and add realism to the game, but once they're installed the features are hard to ignore if you get tired of them (vampires, celebrities, wild animals running around the city etc). I find Generations to be the weakest expansion pack, but that's because I only really play single Sims, not families.

Like Ausette, Ambitions is my favourite. Probably  because of the fact it was my first EP. I also love Twinbrook! It may have some pretty ugly sims but I love the scenery. The Ghost Hunter Career has also won me over.

My least favourite has to be Generations. Why, well  I absolutely love Late Night and Pets and WA is full of fun adventures, Generations just sits at Least Favourite because I love the others so much!

I have every EP including Pets but I had to uninstall Pets due to my laptop not being able to run the graphics properly, so that's my least favourite. :P Kidding though, as it's my laptop's fault - not the game's, it would probably be my most favourite if it wasn't for the fact I couldn't play.

My favourite is either World Adventures or Late Night. They both add a lot of content that completely changes the feeling of the game and makes it even better. :D

I don't have a least favourite really, as Generations and Ambitions both come a very close second behind LN and WA, and I love them too.

I would have to say that I love them all so far and I hope it continues for all the ones I buy. My top two are Pets and Late Night for sure. Followed by Generations, WA and Ambitions. I really don't use enough of WA or Ambitions but I love the ability to use the stuff in them. I know some people don't like LN but I don't get annoyed by the Celebrity or Vampire Infections that everyone else gets, maybe I just don't notice. I could not live without the stuff in LN for my game.  :D Pets just makes my families complete. For me I can't imagine family without a pet, or as my dad puts it: We couldn't stand not being owned by a pet.  :P

Agree. And because it's the least glitch Expansion Patch I've play.

P.s: If Late Night works as "normal" as its purpose (without those glitch), I will love it more than Ambitions :D.

My favorite it definitely Pets. No competition. Ambitions is my second favorite, but that's probably because I use it the most next to Pets. Late Night is probably my least favorite, but that's because I never play vampires or go to clubs. I hardly even use Mixology. :-\

I can't choose between Ambitions and World Adventures, they are easily my favourites. Pets and Generations come joint second, with Late Night being my least favourite.

Maybe this topic should have a poll? The results would be interesting.

I think I would go with Ambitions too! I have them all and for some reason I just like all the added features in Ambitions. I think my least favorite would be Late Night as I don't play that one much! But really I like them all in their own way each one adds something different that I use when I want to and wouldn't want to be without any of them really!

Hey guys I'm taking an extended hiatus... again. I'm out of ideas to build houses and I don't have as much fun designing homes like I used to; it feels more like a chore. So that's where I'll be, I will probably be back sometime. :P

I don't have pets yet but I'm pretty sure it will be my favorite! Ever since the sims 3 came out I've been waiting for this expansion release after release.

But, if I were to pick from the ones I do have, I would probably pick WA.

It just adds alot more to the game. (Worlds, vacation homes, skills, tomb raiding, objects, outfits, sims, opportunities, etc)

If I had to pick a least favorite, it would be generations. I simply don't like playing with large families an dthegame usually ends for me when the 2nd or third generation is born so I don't really get to enjoy many of the features.
Sometimes love is not enough and road gets tough I don't know why.

I think when you start a new topic you have to choose "create new poll" instead of "create new topic". I don't think there's any other way.

If I'm not wrong, with a vBulletin Forum, staff (mod, s-mod, admin) can always add a poll in to a topic.
