Question of the Day, April 9, 2010

There are many ways to torture Sims: take away the ladder in the pool, wall them up, remove their toilets. Time to 'fess up: Are you a Sims abuser?

Permalink

No. But I killed many civilians in Jurassic Park Operation Genesis and RollerCoaster Tycoon.

I used to so enjoy having them break their little necks diving from the pool in the Sims: Bustin out.

You paused the game when they were in mid dive, and then took away the pool, and they fell to the ground with a sickening crunch.

I don't know how they got that past the censors.

So yes.

I'm a fire man.

Yes... I... I killed the sims.
And not just the sims. Anything else I could.
In fact...
I had a death-center set up on the original Sims... I killed dozens at least one time... all to make a graveyard...
Yeah, bad murder memories of the sims...

I can't remember torturing my Sims. I mean, I think I walled in one couple once. But that was only because I thought Child-Services were going to take their baby!

Fireworks
Indoors
In a house with no toilets

What's the point of being God if you can't torture and burn a few of these meaningless multitudinous minions of yours?

When I get bored of them, they need to go out with a bang...or in some cases a fire

All the time. Occasionally.

But it's the game's fault... there are so many ways to murder, it's unbelievable nobody put it on the same level as Rape simulators.

I have never actually played any of the games.

Torturing sims is an art form. Sure, you can starve them or make them start a fire, but there are ways to get creative with it.

When I'm bored, sure. I know the difference between real people and pixels, so there's no harm done.

Wait, you could do other things than torture them!?!?!

My favorite part was when i had so many die the grim reaper moved in with them.

I did it a couple times just to see how it happends.
But that's just not my playstyle.

I knew many of the ways that you could kill sims.
Never actually done it however.
I try to be the nice guy in any game if I can help it (bystanders throwing themselves in front of my car is never helpful, it scratches the paintwork).

I once maxed out every skill on a sim living alone in 2 before, lots of aspiration points for me! (Not that I actually spent any of them...)

It's not half the fun, it's the only fun I've ever had in that game. Haven't played it in years, but yeah, that's all I'd ever do in it.

Voted 'half the fun' but read all the fun and I have spent a grand total of 10 minutes torturing one sim. It was fun for 5 minutes then Istarted to feel like the guy who does big brother and had to go peel my skin off in a blisteringly hot shower so that I could feel clean again

I don't play the sims that much, but the times I do usally end up me trying to make the ideal home and family. The only times my sims seem to die is when a glitch occurs.

I used to block them off in the kitchen and watch them "cook"

Mwahahaha.

I Liked Mentally Torturing them,

Make two Sims fall in love Get the chick Preggers, Slowly stave the male in a boxed room pretty much made out of windoes in the middle of the house. Time his death to just before the baby is born.
Make the mother bond with the baby till It's old enought to kill (Have it as the mothers only contact) Then Kill it the same way you did the father.

looks like the player plays god games
*sunglasses*
old testament style
YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE

Haven't played in years but I remember being a fan of trapping my neighbours until they died of exhaustion, I liked to collect the tombstones and urns they turned into.
You would have thought the neighbours would have stopped coming round after a while, the island in the middle of the pool filled with tombstones must have been a least a little bit of a clue...

Well, yes. I especially enjoyed walling in the neighbors...

Yes. Trapping sims in a room with nothing and letting their other half/best friend watch as they die to mentally torture them.
I remember my sister inviting the whole neighbourhood round and getting them all in the swimming pool and taking the ladders out, wiping out the whole neighbourhood and leaving one sim to watch.

Yeah, but it's far more fun to watch them kill themselves.

Wait, that's not the objective of the game? Oh.

I used to play seriously and try to have my guy be successful. Then I would set the house on fire...

Of course!!! That's half the fun! The whole point of playing God is deciding who lives and who dies! And in the end, they're just pixels, so it's all good. And sometimes, it's plain survival of the fittest! (That Sim got stuck between two chairs? Up to him/her to get out of it!)

Actually, no, I don't - but I tend towards only playing the Sims for a few days at a time, so I'm hardly a hardcore Sims fan, heh.

Well it was all I did when I used to play the first Sims.I used to make them work,and just live normal live.But the when I got bored with them,I offed them and created a new Sims/family.Rinse and repeat.

Furburt:

So yes.

The censors probably didn't notice. And god yes that was awesome.
But why wasn't there the option, "Why else would I play it?"? Honestly, that's the only fun to be had in the Sims. Oh, designing can be kinda cool, and there is a small sense of satisfaction of giving your sim the perfect life.

I used to collect tombstones too... Oh my god, I think I want to play this game again... Hmmmm, I wonder where it went.

try to get them to make a living by only making gnomes. then if they starve, its their fault for not getting good fast enough.

Don't even get me started on them getting stuck on furniture

I haven't played The Sims in years, but when I did it was a fantasy world with nothing but women inhabiting it who were all lesbians. 'Bout the only torture I put them through was finding out when their significant other was cheating on them, which happened often.

I'll admit, I took out my inner sadist out on those pixelated bastards, but the novelty wore off after a few days; and in the end, you're just stuck with a game that only gets entertaining the more you stuff mods into it.

Even then, it's more micromanaging that I'd like in a game, and this is coming from someone who enjoys the complexity of Civ IV and FFVIII.

yes i had a house on sims 1 where i collected gravestones in the back yard
plus i designed it to figure out all the ways i could kill them and hence collect grave stones

the easiest way i found was to put 2 polar bear rugs on the ground then fill the rest of the floor up with other rugs and put as many fire places around the walls as possible
get my willing victims to sit on the polar bear rugs take the door away and light all the fire places and wait eventually all the rugs would go up in flames and the whole room would catch after that and a few minutes later i would have 4 grave stones to add to my collection have the survivors clean up then lay down new rugs and so the cycle continued

eventually the house got so expensive i had to spend quite a while with 8 sims full going at work to afford the place so i could manufacture new graves

[edit]and the ghosts lots and lots of ghosts the ghosts were pretty cool
