Lovers of this classic video game over on Reddit opened up about the most bizarre things they had ever done with their Sims. From funny mishaps to sinister murder-suicide plots, these stories will make you want to find your nearest console and binge with The Sims.
User forces starving Sim to throw out pizza he secretly ordered; Sim cries while it happens
"I was starving my Sim and he sneakily called up for a pizza. When it was delivered I made him throw it in the garbage. Then he cried."
Player stuffs entire neighborhood inside house with one toilet and no doors
"Killing Sims is (generally) too easy and vastly overdone. So one day I was an a mischievous mood so I decided to perform a 'social experiment'. I built a very bland house. Basically a big square of unpainted walls without windows and only one door. Once I had the whole neighborhood trapped inside, I removed the only way out.
Inside the house there was one refrigerator (no starving to death allowed) and right in the center of the house, a single toilet. I wanted to see which Sims would unashamedly use the toilet in full view of everyone else. Most did not want to.
Slowly I would shrink the walls as people moved away from them forcing everyone closer and closer to that one, lone toilet. The whole neighborhood, all fed and needing to use the toilet, nearly all too ashamed to use it standing around in a tight, confined space all staring at the toilet longingly. Many were standing in puddles. Woe betide them that fainted."
Player forces husband to paint wife's affairs, hangs paintings all over the house
"One of my Sims had the desire to sleep with ten people. She had a husband who was an artist. He was always in his studio endlessly painting, he had a bed in there, he was completely dedicated. Every time she had a lover over I had him paint the scene in the bedroom. He never caught her as he rarely left his studio but all the time he was obliviously painting her infidelity. Obviously I hung these paintings all over the house."
Player makes clean-freak Sim, locks him in house with dead hamster and rotting food
"I made a guy who was a compulsive neat-freak. Put him in a really surreal little house with a wedding buffet and a hamster or something, and deleted the door. Eventually, he went insane from lack of cleanliness and depression over his little rodent friend dying, and starved to death once the banquet rotted. I put the resulting urn in the room. I then repeated an identical scenario several times, always keeping the urns in the room. Eventually the tenth iteration of this guy is up all night, every night, terrified of a parade of ghosts of himself."
