Haven't played the sims since part 1. May give it a shot when I have a few hours to burn. Can't complain, for free!
Thanks OP.

I can't even remember why I was angry at this game compared to The Sims 3.

EDIT: I mean besides the dozen or so DLC/expansions/whatever that inevitably come out with this series.
Source: Spent far too much on Sims 3.
Do you not have anything else to do rather than argue with strangers on the internet
Nope. That's why I'm on the internet arguing with strangers. If I had anything better to do I'd probably be doing it.

Good deal, though I can't believe that this game is still so glitchy after all this time.

Hmmm, odd roadblock - anyone know the cause?

I navigated through all the prompts that are pushing subscribing for Origin Access Basic amd Origin Access Premier when buying Sims 4 for free. I clicked "Not interested in joining today? Buy Now - $0.00".

The next prompt lets me choose between:
Standard Edition
Save 100% "Purchase as a gift $0.00"

Digital Deluxe Edition
$49.99

That's where it goes weird. I don't own the game, but I cannot purchase it for myself - only as a gift.

When I choose "as a gift", everyone I try to gift it to (including myself) comes up greyecd out with a "Cannot Determine" to the right hand side of their ID.

Are you clicking on the down arrow instead of the whole button?

From Reddit: (https://www.reddit.com/r/VideoGameDeals ... 4_is_free/)

"For anyone else who gets stuck on the part where you can only either buy the Deluxe edition or send the free version as a gift, add it to your Wishlist and then go to the Wishlist and you can click Get it Free."

"Alternatively, you can just log in, log out and then log back in - It seems to work also."

I have not even installed the Origin app yet. I am logged in to origin.com and think I have claimed this game. As long as it's in "My Game Library" I own the rights to install it at a later given that it's still available through Origin correct?
