** Is [=TS4=] a return to the good old days of [=TS1/2=] with its character-centered gameplay, or does the removal of some popular features (open world, toddlers and Create-A-Style) mean it's just a huge step back for the series overall? The fanbase is split into two groups: Those that find it inferior to The Sims 3, thus already obsolete, and those who like the new features it presents and enjoy the fact that it still gives the same fun open-ended experience Sims fans can expect from the franchise.

** Is [=TS3=] awesome, or does it suck forever? Though after the expansion packs were completed, The Sims 2 players accept that The Sims 3 is a great game on its own, poor optimizations aside.
** When [=TS4=] was announced, the community was broken between players that were disappointed and players that were excited.
** The revelation that Sims 4 would not have basic features like pools or toddlers at release definitely angered the fan base. Now people are just angry about the toddlers.
** After a demo of The Sims 4's Create-A-Sim was released, the fandom was once again split due to not everyone having received it.
** You will either prefer the classic sim era (2000), or the newer ones (Sims 2, Sims 3). Most commonly you will either prefer ''Sims 2'' or ''Sims 3'' and hate the other. But there is no say that you can't like them all, it's just rarer.
** One has already developed over [=TS4=] on whether it's a return to the good old days of [=TS1/2=] with its character-centered gameplay, or whether the removal of some popular features (open world, toddlers and Create-A-Style) means it's just a giant step back for the series overall.

* FunnyAneurysm: The romance-despising Agnes Crumplebottom can be this more some players, given the revelation in ''The Sims 3'' (which takes place before ''The Sims'') that she was once married, but [[TheLostLenore her husband tragically drowned]], apparently not long after they married, thus [[FreudianExcuse hinting that this is the reason for her aversion of PDA]].

Added DiffLines:

* SequelDifficultyDrop: Over time, The Sims games have become easier and easier, with social interactions being much easier, and the moods dropping slower.


Added DiffLines:

* ThatOneLevel: Pregnancy, and to an extent, raising a toddler, since you either have to deal with a moody mother, which could be downright lethal in earlier games, or a toddler that you have to build skills for while being severely restricted in every part of the game while playing as one.
** When the Tragic Clown appears in The Sims 1, be prepared to make a depressed Sim happy, while also dealing with a clown who seems to go out of his way to make life miserable.

** A Fridge Tear Jerker: Juliette Capp is a Family Sim. Romeo Monty is a [[CasanovaWannabe Romance Sim]]. This Tear Jerker applies to ''any'' relationship between a Romance Sim and a Sim of any other aspiration, since the former won't be happy unless they're cheating on their hapless partner, but this particular example is the most heartwrenching. Thought you could give ''Theatre/RomeoAndJuliet'' a happy ending? [[YankTheDogsChain Think again]], their incompatible aspirations will pull the rug out from under that plan. There's some weird consolation in the fact that the expansion packs accidentally gave Juliett a Romance-themed lifetime wish, so... [[BittersweetEnding at least that means they'll]] ''[[BittersweetEnding both]]'' [[BittersweetEnding end up sleeping around...?]]Technology comes to the rescue though in form of Renuyu Senso-Orb...

* ScapegoatCreator: The disproportionate scorn heaped upon Rod Humble, at one point executive producer of the Sims division, because of his past experience working with SOE and some offhand comment that he "didn't get ''The Sims'' at first". FanDumb feared he was going to "turn ''The Sims'' into EverQuest." It didn't help that he [[AuthorAvatar appeared as a Sim]] in one expansion as essentially a door-to-door hype salesman.
