10 Expansion Packs We Want To Make A Comeback In The Sims 4

Since The Sims 4 was released, quite a few really cool expansion packs, game packs, and stuff packs have been released. While these have really expanded on the game and added awesome new items, interactions, and worlds to the game, there are some from previous installments in The Sims franchise that we're missing.

The Sims team has definitely hinted at future packs that they're planning to release, and while we don't know what they are yet, Sims fans have been hoping that their favorites from The Sims and its sequels, The Sims 2 and The Sims 3, will be making a comeback.

10 University Life

One of the main packs that we seriously need back in The Sims 4 is a pack where our Sims are able to head to college! The ability to send your teen sim off to one of the universities in the game was added in The Sims 2 and returned in The Sims 3, but it has yet to be added back into The Sims 4.

With all the other advancements that this game has made like brand new careers and interactions, we can only imagine how awesome The Sims 4 will be once a pack like University Life is added.

9 World Adventures

Since the base game for The Sims 4 was released, several expansion packs and game packs have added brand new worlds to the game, giving us new places to have our Sims live and new venues for them to visit. While the worlds each have their own unique feeling, there's something missing.

In The Sims 3: World Adventures, Sims were able to go on trips not just to other worlds, but to countries around the world. There, they could partake in a host of local traditions and puzzles.

8 Supernatural

The Sims 4 isn't without its supernatural creatures, we all know that. The Sims 4: Island Living recently introduced us to mermaids and The Sims 4: Vampires gave us a spooky new world and the ability to either create a vampire in Create a Sim or the ability to have our Sims turned into vampires.

But something we're seriously missing is other supernatural creatures that expansion packs like The Sims 3: Supernatural had. Seriously, where are our werewolves? What about fairies, witches, and zombies? We need Bonehilda back!

7 Showtime

The Sims 4: Get Famous gave us the ability to become a huge name in the world of The Sims. We're able to follow our Sim to their acting job and watch them as they make their way through various other interactions around the world while building their fame. While this is cool, The Sims 3: Showtime had some other aspects that we totally miss.

Careers like a famous singer, acrobat, and magician were so cool that it's a bummer that The Sims 4 hasn't implemented them just yet. Plus, this pack featured Katy Perry!

6 Late Night

The different packs that have been introduced into The Sims 4 have seriously added so much to the game for our Sims to do. From hitting a karaoke bar in San Myshuno to going to a cool party at Von Haunt Estate, there's a lot to do for a Sim that wants to go out and have fun. Still, there are some things that are missing.

While a lot from The Sims 3: Late Night has been brought back into The Sims 4, things like the astrology system, which gave a relationship boost to compatible Sims, and the subway system that The Sims 3: Late Night brought to the game are still seriously missing.

5 Into The Future

While we can't deny that The Sims 3 was a super fun installment in The Sims franchise, we also have to admit that it was pretty strange. Although a few of the packs were a little wacky, the expansion packs that were added to the game were unique and made the playing experience super interesting.

One expansion pack from The Sims 3 that hasn't been brought back yet that we're totally waiting for is The Sims 3: Into the Future. All the futuristic items and the ability to travel into the future and have robot butlers was just too cool!

4 Generations

In a way, The Sims 4 did get an expansion pack similar to The Sims 3: GenerationsThe Sims 4: Parenthood is an expansion pack that really added a lot of interactions to a family of Sims, but it's just not the same.

The Sims 3: Generations was an expansion pack that added so many things to a Sim in regards to their feelings about their family and their interactions with their family. Although The Sims 4: Parenthood is great for Sims that are parents, it's missing some essential things that Generations gave us!

3 Makin' Magic

Makin' Magic is an expansion pack that was released for both The Sims and The Sims 2 but unfortunately never returned for another installment. While some creative fans of The Sims 4 have created magical-themed stuff packs full of all kinds of custom content, we need this expansion pack back in our games.

As the name would suggest, this pack allows Sims to do all kinds of magic with spell books and wands. On top of that, Sims could even buy a pet dragon!

2 Free Time

While all the packs that have been added to The Sims 4 have given our Sims so much stuff to do, there are some gameplay aspects that The Sims 2: Free Time had that we seriously miss.

As Sims took part in certain activities like playing video games, reading books, or painting on an easel, they would gain interest points in different hobbies. This would give them the ability to research or blog about their interests on a computer, talk about their interests with other Sims, and even become more or less compatible with other Sims, depending on their shared interests!

1 70s, 80s, & 90s Stuff

This last one is actually not an expansion pack but is instead just a stuff pack. This pack was released for The Sims 3 and is, fittingly enough, called 70s, 80s, & 90s Stuff. As the name would suggest, this stuff pack was filled up with clothing, hairstyles, and home furnishing items that were pulled straight out of those three decades. Custom content makers have created some pretty awesome stuff that has been a decent replacement in The Sims 4, but we need this pack back in the game!
