The Sims 4 Already Has A Nudity Mod

Not everyone is a fan of the mosaic censors in The Sims- -which is why it was only a matter of time before someone modded them out. If wild The Sims 3 mods are any indication, this is just the tip of the iceberg-and we're bound to see a bunch of other nudity/sexual mods in the future.

The Sims 4

The wait leading to The Sims 4 release was often shrouded in a cloud of reports from early game previews that revealed an array of missing features.

Zen of Design

Simyopia

Among the various other ludicrous claims I've seen come from the gamergate truthers and Sarkeesian bashers is a fear, a deep, unsettling fear: if the Social Justice Warriors win, the games industry will stop making gamer games for gamers! There will be no more boobs and blood! We'll all be playing Diner Dash! One of the more tedious parts of the industry is that it is one where copycats are routinely pushed into development. Every time someone comes up with a 'gamer game' formula that kind of works, every major publisher falls over itself attempting to copy it as quickly as possible.
