Top 10 Hilariously Twisted Things to Do in Sims Games

At this point, they might as well call this franchise Psychopath Simulator. Welcome to, and today we’re counting down our picks for the top ten hilariously twisted things to do in Sims games.

For this list, we’ll be ranking the most psychotic and appalling things players have inflicted upon sims characters over the course of the franchise’s run. We’re getting pretty specific here, so vague things like “drowning” will not be included. Let’s get freaky!

#10: Have Your Sim Laugh to Death

We can certainly think of worse ways to go, but at the same time, laughing to death must be extremely uncomfortable. Have you ever laughed so hard that you had trouble breathing? You know how it actually kind of sucks? Now imagine that times…well, times until you die. It’s surprisingly easy for particularly playful or happy sims to laugh themselves into an early grave. Simply prevent them from going to sleep or going to the mirror to calm down and watch as they transition from gleeful laughter to hopeless asphyxiation.

#9: Take Away the Pool Ladder

OK, we know we said simple drowning wouldn’t be included, but this one is just too much of a classic to pass up. Drowning a sim in the pool is a tale as old as…well, as old as the first “Sims.” We’re sure you all know it by now: you order your sim to take a swim (a sim swim, if you will), take away the pool ladder, and watch them go through an existential crisis as they debate the meaning of life and contemplate their impending watery death. This is a time-honored “Sims” tradition…albeit a severely messed up one, but a tradition nonetheless!

#8: Drive the Neat Freaks Literally Insane

No one enjoys a messy house. Especially the neat freaks. Just like in real life, it’s ridiculously easy to drive the neat freak sims up the wall by leaving their house a disgusting pig pen. We’re talking crusty dishes in the sink, full-to-the-very-brim stinky garbage, dirty clothes strewn everywhere, and maybe even little puddles of bodily fluids if you’re so inclined. And then simply refuse your neat freak sim the chance to clean up the mess and watch them go bananas. Is it cruel to watch a perfectly nice person squirm on the floor and stomp their feet in disgust and insanity? Yes. Is it funny? Also yes.

#7: Become an Absentee Parent

Some people like to play these games just as they would their real lives. They go to school, get a job, and have kids. But that’s boring. Let’s ruin some lives! A darkly hilarious thing you can do in these games is have lots of children and never see them. Romance someone, get them pregnant, and immediately call it off. Repeat ad nauseam. Or you could have a few kids with your spouse and then leave them to start another family. There’s nothing stopping you from being the absolute worst parent imaginable and creating a lot of half brothers and sisters who all share one thing in common – never knowing their biological parent.

#6: Work Them to Death

A lot of people complain about being overworked. But not too many literally work themselves to death. Except for these sims. It’s not fun for them, but it certainly is for us. There are various ways to work a sim six feet under. You can keep them perpetually busy and never allow them a break to eat or drink, resulting in starvation or dehydration. You can refuse them sleep and exhaust them. You can get them so enraged at the long hours that they have a heart attack. In short, there are countless options to stress your sim out. It’s truly barbaric, but hey, you clicked on this video.

#5: Kidnap People

This one is a little more on the twisted side, but hey, it can still be funny given the right circumstances. By kidnapping people, we don’t mean literally jumping them on the street and stuffing them in the trunk of your car. What you do is make friends with or romance a person, invite them over to your house, and then simply lock them somewhere and “forget” about them for a while. You can give them food and water if you’re so inclined, but it’s not a necessity. Kidnappers aren’t the friendliest of people, after all.

#4: Torture Them with Guinea Pig Disease

You unfortunately can’t turn the town into a sinister wasteland of blood-thirsty zombies ala Raccoon City, but what you can do is infect everyone with guinea pig disease and watch them suffer. It’s the next best thing. Sims can catch guinea pig disease if they’re bitten by a dirty guinea pig or if they catch it from another sim. An infected sim will persistently cough and sneeze, and their energy will diminish before they eventually die. If you infect enough people, you can have an entire community booming with coughs and sneezes and littered with lethargic individuals. Someone get the caution tape, because this town is done for.

#3: Host a Deadly Dance Contest

Dance contests are fun, right? After all, there’s music, plenty of fancy footwork, drinks, and quality time with friends. Not here. These are the ones that will have your sims leaving this mortal coil via a last man standing jig. It’s like Stephen King’s The Long Walk, only with dancing instead of walking. Turn on the music, let the dancing commence, and continue to reign over the group until one dancer remains atop the pile of bodies. It’s fun for you and for them! Well, minus the dying part.

#2: Lock Them in a Sauna

Saunas are a great way to unwind. Actually, let me rephrase that; saunas are a great way to unwind if you have just finished swimming and are looking to relax in a bare minimum amount of clothes. Saunas are not fun if you are locked in, dry as a bone, and covered head to toe in clothes. Unfortunately for the sims, that is entirely possible in these games. Keep your sim locked in the sauna and watch them go from mildly uncomfortable to scorching and imploring for escape. It’s not a very good way to go, but no one has ever said that saunas are the safest things in the world.

#1: Sims Barbecue

Like taking away the pool ladder, sims barbecues are a classic past time. And we don’t mean a relaxing backyard grill with friends and booze. To enact this time-honoured crime against sims everywhere, simply congregate a large amount of people in a small space, take away any means of escape, have one sim “accidentally” start a fire, and watch in morbid fascination as it slowly spreads and engulfs the room. It’s even better if the fire starts from something silly, like burning a piece of food on the stove. It’s a way to both have a laugh and get creative, and let’s be honest, we’ve all done it at least once! Yeah…I might need Habertherapy.
