Our Sims have seen it all. It’s time to pay tribute to them with this ranking of the 10 most atrocious deaths that we could inflict on them.
A true phenomenon of the 2000s, The Sims has carved out a lion’s share of the simulation games category and represents a real outlet for all players. We did our little experiments there, sometimes macabre, where we took malicious pleasure in torturing our digital alter-egos. In memory of all our Sims gone too soon, here are the 10 Horrifying Ways To Kill A Sims.
The torture of the swimming pool
While your Sims is thinking of living his best life in his swimming pool, wading and doing laps, an idea sneakily crosses your mind: what happens if we remove the access ladder in the pool? Well, your sims will start swimming for hours until they run out of strength and end up… drowned. Undoubtedly one of the worst deaths you can reserve for your Sims. Rest in peace.
In your defense, a fire can happen so quickly, especially if your Sims is new to cooking, it can let your dish burn. In this case, two scenarios. Or, you have thought of adding the fire alarm and the firefighters arrive in time to bring the fire under control. Either, you manage by yourself and that can turned bad. The most sadistic among us will be able to try to lock the sims in a room in the grip of flames and let him die charred.
As surprising as it may seem, yes, a sim can starve. Depriving him of food for several players can lead to his death, which can only be slow and painful.
Lock it between 4 walls
This technique alone brings together all the most gruesome deaths. By locking the Sims in an empty room, without the possibility of leaving, the latter can die of hunger, fatigue, sadness, lack of sleep… in short. But it’s long, very long. It will take patience to see your Sims take one’s last breath.
Death Claude Francois
Well, behind this catchy name is electrocution. Until proven otherwise, it is not yet possible to use your phone connected in the shower. In contrast, a Sims with low DIY skill points may risk his life repairing an electronic device. No chance !
eaten by the cow plant
The cow plant is a very popular element for players, it is also a possibility to make your Sims disappear. Because yes, the cow plant is very difficult to tame… and especially carnivorous! One misstep and your Sims can be eaten alive. Finally, it was much more likely to happen in the Sims 2. With the new generation of Sims 4, the plant is a little nicer since it “spits out” your Sims most of the time.
The curse of the mummy
The Mummy is a creature integrated into the Sims 3: Destination Adventure. While exploring the ancient tombs, you may come face to face with a mummy. By confronting her, the sims finds himself cursed. Of course, this curse is deadly and gives Sims 14 days to ward off the spell. There are ways to lift the curse, otherwise you can just let him die… After all, not everyone’s name is Lara Croft, the Tomb Raider.
Death of anger
Emotion management, although relatively new, is an essential mechanic in the game. Besides the fact that it allows more realism in the interactions, it also introduces new ways of dying in The Sims: like apoplexy, or death from anger. Pissing off your Sims in every way the poor guy ends up reaching a breaking point. We can easily imagine the suffering in which the Sims is plunged.
Crushing by a Murphy bed
This death could be reminiscent of the ranking of the stupidest deaths in history, the famous Darwin Awardsbut it is a domestic accident which is more common than you think… which also exists in The Sims! Murphy beds aren’t that reliable and forcing them can cause your Sims to get stuck… for ever !
The arrival of the seasons makes it possible to see the arrival of new activities, but also obligations, such as that of respect the temperatures. Because yes, leaving a Sims in the middle of winter will simply cause them to freeze to death, and their skin will also turn bluer and bluer. On the contrary, leaving a Sims in direct sunlight can make them die of heat.
