That's not true. I guess for the "sozializer-type" of player, the
addition of new emotes matters more than anything else.  If you look
at The Sims Online, this game has almost nothing else to offer than
lots of emotes and costumes to wear. (Well, there is the
house-building, too).  Although admittedly The Sims Online isn't as
big a success as it could be if it would address the other types of
player more.

Just my 2p,
