Why it’s delicious to torture your Sims

Don’t try and take the moral high ground here, because there’s no such thing. If you’ve played the Sims, you know that at some point, the game gets boring and because it’s not any fun to just start a new one, you are pretty much obligated to torture your current Sim until it dies.

What’s the point of having omnipotent control over the life of a quasi-human if you don’t get to make its existence unbearably painful and horrifying?

MWEB GameZone takes a look at the darker side of playing a Sims game (PC, The Sims)

One of the ladies that I know plays Sims builds a swimming pool and then removes all the ladders / stairs into the pool. Boy, if the psychologists could see this :P.

Black and White also offered similar kind of sadistic power - I have to admit laughing my head off when my creature pooped on one of the villagers! :-)

So much fun to be had with the pool back in Sims 2, always so much fun!

Still need to exercise the full amount of torture options on Sims 3...

Seems like pool is a popular choice of torture...

If I recall correctly, you can't drown your Sims in Sims 3. They can climb out of the pool without a ladder now :(

Next thing you know the lobbyists will be trying to pin drowning kittens or such "evil" on gamers who have a track record of creatively killing their Sim...

Here's two creative ways that made me laugh though: "I made a Sim with no handiness skill try to fix the dishwasher. He was electrocuted twice, the second time he died."

"I also locked a Sim in a room with no door and starved him to death."

Well, at least it won't be blamed on Call of Duty, as usual :)

I say death to all sims! Considering the amount of Poo they produce in the new SimCity game -.- wish I could limit their dung production per day... Any sim who exceeds the limit will be zapped to death lol
