Sim's 4 has 8 expansion packs, but not all are created equal. Don't get me wrong, all the extra content is great. However, depending on what interest you and what you hope to get out game play, certain expansions might be a better investment. I have almost all the expansions ( Seasons, Cats and Dog s, Get to Work, Island Living, City Living, Get Famous). I have a few game and st uff packs, but I will discuss that at a later date. ANYWHOOOOO, I have made a list of the expansions rated (the ones i have played, and others listed by order i intend to buy. Seasons- This is the the beginning if you want to add more realism to your game play. This expansion adds weather and holidays. With all then great added content, you really get the feel of time passing and a whole sim( wholesome) life, I mean who does not enjoy decorating for Christmas or Halloween?
