I have to say - one of the most entertaining aspects of the Sims series is the total unpredictability of the world in which your characters exist. The things that can happen completely at random can shock and amaze even the most hardened of Sims players.
Sometimes things happen that are so surreal that by the time you have stopped laughing, and picked yourself up off the floor - you’ve somehow killed the neighbor’s dog and have CPS knocking at the door.
Of course, not every odd thing that happens in the Sims is crafted by a crazy algorithm - sometimes people are just plain messed up.
The compilation below is comprised of real stories from real Sims players, just like you. This selection of utterly bizarre stories, gifs and pics represent the mere tip of the iceberg into the crazy world that is the Sims.
"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."
13. Fire regulations
"I was so fed up of everything burning every time I had a barbeque that I made a barbeque island. One sim was cooking and another was just going up the ladder to join him when, shockingly, the bbq went up in flames. I quickly ordered chef to go down the ladder, but he couldn't other guy was in the way. So I ordered other guy down the ladder, but he couldn't chef was stood too close. They both burned and I rage quit."
“One time I killed a Sim by drowning. Then I made everyone show up to his funeral in swimwear.”
11. Gaming to blame
“I briefly fell asleep while playing and when I awoke, CPS had taken the child away while the parents were gaming.”
10. Now, that's very weird
9. Getting the wrong end of the stick
“I built a haunted house and killed like three families for the cemetery. The game literally gave me a pop up saying the Sims is a *life* simulation, and that I’m killing too many Sims.”
8. Not my job!
“So, in my most recent Sims playthrough, I found this girl that I really wanted my Sim to marry. Problem is she already had a husband, so rather than just doing the (relatively) normal thing and just increasing the relationship and convincing her to break up with him, I instead became best friends with her husband, convinced him to move in with me, and then drowned him in a pool so I could marry his wife.
Then I moved in with his wife (who lived in a HUGE mansion) and killed the rest of her family because I didn’t feel like taking care of the other Sims that she lived with but I still wanted the house.”
There are really no words for this. A baby in an aquarium - CPS?
5. Teenage dreams
“My teenage son decided waking up to his alarm and getting on the school bus was unimportant. So I locked him in a 1×1 room until he peed himself and died in the puddle.”
4. Wanna make out?
3. Scary life truth
2. Too much 'woohoo'
"I recently found out you can kill old sims by overexertion in the Sims 4. My sim is going around town fucking all the old people to death and once death shows up she proceeds to make friends with him. I'm counting up graves until my sim can bang death."
You see, some people are just messed up — makes for super great reading though. This list got me to thinking, there must be some crazier stories out there. What is the worst thing you have ever done in the Sims?
Another terrific testament to a stellar game, the Sims offers up unlimited hours of fun for all ages and it is one of those rare games that will only be as good as you make it. Your imagination becomes your reality.
