The Sims 4 video and impressions, E3 2014

The Sims 4 isn't trying to reinvent the long-running simulation franchise, but rather, deepen some of its lifelong mechanics. The big new element is emotion, which can unlock unique interactions for your Sim to take part in — like angry push-ups, or sad gardening. (Note: Sad gardening wasn't actually shown off in our demo, but we assume it's a feature.) For more on The Sims 4's new features, check out our video preview above.
