Sims 4 Infants - Good Idea, Horrible Implementation

The addition of infants in the Sims 4 is a great idea. You can tell tons of planning went into the infants mannerisms, interactions, and level of awareness. Unfortunately, just like the recent implementations of packs in the past three years, the addition of infants in the base game is riddled with bugs. The most annoying is that when you go to manage world and return the game places the infant out in the world far away from the home. Every SINGLE time. And secondly, if you leave the infant on the home lot with another parent the infants needs aren't met. So, clearly two very basic things the Sims team did not ensure was done wasn't. They did not include staging for the infant, so the infant loops the world when you are not actively controlling her/him. And when you leave the infant home the sims team did not ensure the infant's needs were met.

I would give the sims team grace if this was the first time they implemented a little life state, but they did the SAME EXACT thing with toddlers. That implementation was messy and it took years to fix it. And then when they fixed it, each new pack would break something else. Toddlers still are outside of the home when you arrive at the lot, while everyone else is inside the home.

I don't know how they do QA/QC at EA Maxis, but it needs to improve.
