I wish the Sims team would branch off of their usual expansion pack formula and go for an idea that truly is out there.  While World Adventures was a fresh change in gameplay, it still could be compared to The Sims 2 Bon Voyage and The Sims Vacation where your sims travel on trips.  If we are led to believe the rumored next expansion, The Sims 3 Hobbies and Professions, more than likely it’ll base itself on The Sims 2 Freetime and The Sims 2 Open for Business.

While many would like to see them re-work the past sim expansions, I love the new ideas that Cinema Blend shared in the following article. ‘Different Times’ and ‘Waterworld’ would be welcome to the Sims series.  Although I’m not quite sure how much an idea like Waterworld could bring to the game, they could quite easily pull off the Different Times idea.  Would also make for some interesting stories as well – westerns, medieval, perhaps even involving time traveling!  Make it happen, EA!
