Tablo:  Throughout the entire time (3 years) it took to resolve the controversy, [Hye Jung, Tablo’s wife] never once made it seem like she was experiencing any hardships.  

Host:  Even though it was probably really difficult for her.

Tablo:  Yes, it was probably even more difficult for her than for me.  Much more difficult.  But she always said, “It’s okay, it’s okay.”

But, we did have one conflict.

We were eating together, and because I always had this troubled look on my face, the atmosphere while we were eating wasn’t very good.

Suddenly, Hye Jung-ie slammed her spoon on the table.

“Hurry up and cry.  Just hurry up and cry.  Cry as much as you want,” she said.

And at those words, I really cried.

She told me to just cry it all out now and put an end to all of it.  She told me, “You’re not someone who can’t beat this.  You’re stronger than this.”

So, like a child, I cried and cried.

Host:  Did she not cry with you?

Tablo:  She didn’t cry then, but when the whole controversy was resolved, one day, I asked her, “It was hard, wasn’t it?”  And then she started crying really hard.  She had held it all in.  Even though she’d been wanting to cry, she thought it would, as a result, make me weaker.

I’ve got your back, and you’ve got mine.
Your pain is my pain; and pain fades in time.
Fine? Fine, brother of mine.
All is forgiven in time.

@TheEAPostblamingconsumers... What a lot of people don't get is that they had to take away some of the features of the game to allow us to connect more deeply to ours sims. By taking out toddlers we are now allowed to have CAS be more free and for us to have the ability to make our sims "realistic" without sliders. Honestly, in my opinion, toddlers and babies aren't that exciting. Having a daycare was pretty cool, but what else could you do with toddlers in the Sims4?

I see your point, and I’m honestly glad you shared it. :D

Things like this deserved to be talked about from all perspectives honestly.

I also fully understand why not everyone would be interested in playing with toddlers, but the thing is I’ve come to realize, is that whether or not you, or anyone else actually does, having a sim family is literally a major core part of the game ( the base game itself ), as a lot of the community has proven ( challenges and legacies and junk ). It’s why they have in game family trees, have the new option to create full families with, in my opinion, a much improved play with genetics button, adoption options, and openly allow and support same sex marriages, and families, because that’s what it’s about at the end of the day, as my husband would put it, because literally no matter how hard he tries to just play one sim who just lives this promiscuously exciting single life, he almost always fucks up and accidentally presses Try Baby instead of Woohoo.

Gat dammit, Bob! Wrap it before you tap it! D8<

I really don’t play with toddlers a lot either, I actually tend to get bored come the child stage, but that could have something to do with actually having a child of my own in RL ( or the fact I get bored easily period ), I dunno. 

Here’s the thing a lot of people are missing, and especially EA in my opinion is missing.

They’re selling to the wrong audience.

Their fans have grown up, a lot, newer fans have come in, but really they’re no different from the old ones. Sure they like their emojis, and their Kylie Jenners, and their One Directions ( puts hip back into place ), but they’re literally no different than we were when we were young. They like to torture their sims with ladderless pools just like their moms and dads, but let’s be honest. Why do we really play the sims? REALLY?

To live the lives we want to live. That we find more interesting than our own, and like you said, are attached to.

Though I will tell you right now I honestly had zero problem being attached to my TS2 and TS3 sims. None, at all, why? Because I made them. EA gave me the platform, but I took the time to buy it, and to install it, and to turn it on, and to spend countless hours creating an entirely different world from the one the game gave me, and that’s fucking awesome.

What I’m trying to say is, EA knows they don’t have to put in the effort to add what we like because we, the community will find a way. It shouldn’t have to be that way though, and by limiting the game by taking out key features you’re limiting, even dare I say stifling the creativity of those who do make it better, the fans, and that’s screwed up tbh, especially when it’s for a reason as shady as making an extra dollar or two. :/

I mean, they’re just now adding dishwashers…yeah, it’s gonna be for free, but that right there says a lot. This game was not anywhere near ready or as well thought out as it’s predecessors.
