The Sims is an integral part of any gamer's collection. Who doesn't love a game that lets you play God? From its humble beginnings to its copious updates and expansions, players are able to create families, build houses, and rule their own little world... or at least that's what they're supposed to do.
On Reddit, lovers of this classic video game opened up about the most bizarre things they had ever done with their Sims. From funny mishaps to sinister plots, these stories will make you want to find your nearest console and binge with The Sims.
One Toilet And No Doors
From Redditor /u/connain:
I was [in] 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 1 door. Once I had the whole neighborhood trapped inside I remove the only way out.
Inside the house there was one refrigerator [...] 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 user it standing around in a tight, confined space all staring at the toilet longingly. Many were standing in puddles. Woe betide them that fainted.
Crying Over Lost Pizza
From Redditor /u/hotbutteredtoast:
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.
Not Much Of A Party Room
From Redditor /u/AlexSushiDog:
I bought a giant mansion but made some modifications to it. By modifications I mean a room called "The Party Room".
The party room had dance floors, plenty of food, music and a nice sports car parked in the middle. What could go wrong?
I threw a party and invited everyone I knew into it and called them into the room. Suddenly the doors shut and a nightmarish hell began.
All the stereos switched to that annoying kids music, the strobe lighting kicked in and the fireplaces were placed. The doors disappeared magically.
At least 30 sims had to endure fire, starvation, piss covered floors, strobe lighting, kids music, windows that pointed directly outside to freedom, ghosts and rotten food for about two weeks ingame.
Trapped With A Hamster
From Redditor /u/vsanna:
I made a guy who was a compulsive neatfreak. Put him in a really surreal little house with a wedding buffet and a hamster or something, 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.
