Everyone, even non-simmers, know the various ways we kill our sims on the regular. The classics include the likes of fire, drowning, electrocution, and starvation. But that’s just the beginning of our little pixel people’s torture. Read on for a look at the wackiest, craziest, most insane ways we’re able to end our sim’s lives.
10. SHARK ATTACK
The Sims 3 Island Paradise
Scuba diving can be quite a terrifying experience. Have you seen some of the demonic creatures they’ve pulled up from the depths of the ocean? Plus, everyone’s seen the movie Jaws before. If you’re diving and you see a shark, you’d better hope there’s a cave nearby to hide in. Otherwise I hope you’re strong enough to fight it off. Go for the nose.
9. WOOHOO’D TO DEATH
The Sims 4
Old people need plenty of rest to make it day to day. If they push themselves too hard, their little hearts could give out. It doesn’t matter how many times it repeats “I think I can” to itself, their hearts aren’t a tank engine. Elders need to monitor their exertion and not exhaust themselves with too many physical activities. This includes woohooing too many times, which will result in their partner having a nice, post-woohoo nap while they collapse on the floor. Talk about a wild ride.
8. BOX OF DANGER
The Sims 3 Showtime
The aptly named Box of Danger is what all the pro-magician’s use to woo their audiences. As its name suggests, it’s not the safest way to earn a living. One slip up and even the greatest of all magicians will meet an untimely fate. Leave your audiences wondering, “Is this part of the act? Where’d that man in the black cloaks appear from?” Just remember, the show must go on.
7. WISHING WELL
The Sims 2 Seasons
Impress the gardening club and you’ll receive the greatest gift of all, a wishing well. May all your dreams come true. That is… until they become nightmares. The biggest rule of wishes is that you can’t be greedy. Wish too many times and what you desire most will become your end. But hey, at least your family still gets the sack of cash.
6. MUMMY CURSE
The Sims 3 World Adventures
No one likes being woken up, especially these guys. But have no fear, you have plenty of time to rid your body of the curse before it consumes you. What’s that? Your vacation just ended and you can’t afford another trip to Egypt? Well then, enjoys your last two weeks while you can. I’m sure you can ignore the curse taking over your vision. Yes, that is an ominous chant you hear getting louder every day. It’ll all be over soon… ish.
The Sims 3 Supernatural
Dirty dishes plaguing your house? Turn them into cash. No use for all those apples in your fridge? Turn them into cash. Sick of your kids leaving their toys lying around the house? Turn them into… you get the point. Plop anything on the altar of the Philosopher’s Stone and watch as they turn to gold in front of your very eyes. Or let the item watch as you turn to gold in front of its very eyes. Look on the bright side, you have a sweet, solid gold statue to mark your grave. Better hope your family doesn’t sell it to pay the mortgage.
The Sims 2 University
Every gardener’s dream, owning a cow plant. Maybe not every gardener, but at least the psycho, crazy ones with pesky neighbors they need to cleanse from the neighborhood. They’re doing everyone a favor, trust them on that. Just don’t trust them enough to ever visit when they call you.
3. TIME ANOMALY
The Sims 3 Into the Future
We’ve all heard the warnings about messing with time travel. The butterfly effect and such. So no one would enter a time machine if it was right in front of them, correct? Well, some might, but they’ll mess with the space time continuum too much and no longer exist, so they don’t count. Clearly they never saw the movie where this exact thing happened.
The Sims Superstar
Living a celebrity lifestyle is exhausting. And what’s the number one thing you shouldn’t do when exhausted? That’s exactly right, skydive. Some celebrities think they’re above the rules, but this is one they’re definitely not. Actually, they end up so high in the air they might be considered above this one.
The Sims 2
You should definitely keep a tidy house, because you don’t want to attract that annoying fly that’ll incessantly buzz in your ear all day. And you know what’s more annoying than that fly? When he invites all his buddies over to eat everything in sight. Hopefully they take your ears off first so you don’t have to hear all of them buzzing around.
BLUNT FORCE TRAUMA
The Sims 3 University Life
Gravity is a wonderful concept most times. Other times it just makes things really heavy. Like really heavy. Guess you should have ponied up and bought that better bed or candy bar instead of going the cheap route. Gravity doesn’t like when you’re cheap.
