Here are the worst stories from this excellent Reddit thread.
I made a guy who was a compulsive neatfreak. Put him in a really surreal little house with a wedding buffet and a hamster or something, deleted the door.
Eventually he went insane from lack of cleanliness and depression over his little rodent friend dying, and starved to death once the banquet rotted. I put the resulting urn in the room.
I then repeated an identical scenario several times, always keeping the urns in the room. Eventually the tenth iteration of this guy is up all night, every night, terrified of a parade of ghosts of himself.
One time I killed a sim by drowning. Then I made everyone show up to his funeral in swimwear.
The haunted Priest
I wanted to make a church with a full, complete graveyard. So I built a small, simple structure moved in a family of 8, get them all inside, remove the door, fill with fire. Yay, 8 new tombstones!
Repeat like 9 times, and you've got a full graveyard of tombstones. Then I built the church and moved in a priest to live there and tend to the grounds.Unfortunately for the priest the grounds had been tainted by the dark rituals of the past and several dozen ghosts would materialize every night.
Tormented by the crowds of specters, he himself died three days later due to never being able to sleep.
My prison filled with slave-artists was pretty grim. Everyone got a single cell, bed, toilet, sink, artist easel. There was a warden that lived above them on the ground level (all the cells are underground of course), who cooked for them, but they could only eat if they were turning out sellable art.
Most of them went insane and died.
My teenage son decide waking up to his alarm and getting on the school bus was unimportant. So I locked him in a 1x1 room until he peed himself and died in the puddle.
I was starving my sim and he sneakily called up for a pizza. When it was delivered I made him throw it in the garbage. Then he cried.
In The Sims 3, I made a basement and it looked like a dungeon. Peeling paint, concrete floors, no fridge. Just a single cheap bed and a toilet.
The basement was split in half by a wall of windows. one half being the dungeon, the other half only had a couch so my family could watch its victims.
I would use cheats to add random people to my family and put them in the dungeon and delete the door. I then removed them from my family and watched them suffer.
Occasionally I would put a refrigerator in there so they could eat just enough to keep them alive longer, but would delete it shortly after they ate.
When they died I would put their tombstones in the backyard so the house would be haunted.
Survival of the fittest
First I created a "perfect man" and six female archetypes. Then I built a home for them all to live in which consisted of a central chamber and six identical rooms with a two person bed, a nice painting, and a crib. Then I had him impregnate all of them. When the babies were born I used a cheat to make them all age to adulthood to see which of the offspring turned out the hottest and killed the rest.
I built an orphanage with seven kids run by one little old lady. She loved those kids and treated them well, and they loved her in turn. Then one day, one of the kids decided to play with their rockets, which set some flowers and then the house on fire. She tried to save them, but succumbed to the flames. One or two of the kids managed to survive, but they never were as happy as before.
Let me tell you about Bob.
I had a perfect nuclear family, the husband and wife had good jobs and the house they built was expensive yet tasteful. The children got good grades and were happy. All was well.
Eventually, the family became rich enough that they needed more room and I decided to build them a new, beautiful house. I spent a good two hours on making this fucking house perfect. It had an indoor pool and everything. But I was only 8 and I had forgotten the most important goddamn thing to buy when you make a house.
When you move, neighbours from other blocks will come over to greet you. I wasn't watching very carefully, but one of my sims must have greeted him because suddenly a bald man in a green shirt was in my house. Bob.
Bob didn't speak to anybody. Bob walked up the first set of stairs and make a beeline to the kitchen. Bob immediately started a fire. Usually when a fire starts it's okay because you have an alarm which notifies the fire department, except I forgot to buy the alarm. Usually when a fire starts, the sims will run into the room where it is and start freaking out or trying to extinguish it.
Not Bob. Bob just left. Bob fucking walked away with no emotion, leaving my family to scream and freak out in the kitchen. The mother and the father were both killed in the blaze, and the children were taken away by social services because their parents were dead. They couldn't call for help because I'd also forgotten to buy a phone.
I watched my favourite family burn and vowed that as long as I lived there would be no safe place for Bob. Every time I created a new neighbourhood he would respawn, always in the same shitty house without friends or family. I have killed Bob in every way available to the game. He has drowned, starved, been killed by aliens and struck by lightning. Every time I started a new game, I'd go and kill Bob first. Nobody else ever came in and burned my house down, or even used my kitchen. Only Bob.
Bob is deceased in the more recent games. I like to think that I had something to do with it.
May you never rest, Bob.
So, in my most recent Sims playthrough, I found this girl that I really wanted my Sim to marry. Problem is she already had a husband, so rather than just doing the (relatively) normal thing and just increasing the relationship and convincing her to break up with him, I instead became best friends with her husband, convinced him to move in with me, and then drowned him in a pool so I could marry his wife.
Then I moved in with his wife (who lived in a HUGE mansion) and killed the rest of her family because I didn't feel like taking care of the other Sims that she lived with but I still wanted the house
I would train my son to be a good enough painter to do screenshot paintings. I then forced him to paint me naked or having sex with his mother/other women. I hung the paintings everywhere.
Normal family dynamics
One time, I created a a husband and wife. The husband got the wife pregnant. They were so excited. One day, the kitchen caught on fire when the husband fell asleep while baking. That's the day everyone's lives changed. Forever.
The firemen came to put it out. No one was hurt. I always liked to hurry up and introduce my characters to the firemen before they leave the scene of a fire. I think it was just a challenge because if you couldn't get to them fast enough they'd disappear forever. But if you could just make a quick intro, they were then available for your sim to call and hang out with whenever.
So wife sim says hello. They strike up a convo, the fireman leaves. One day wife sim invites fireman sim out. They talk, they dance, and really hit it off. It isn't long before wife sim and fireman sim are having a full blown affair!
One day, husband walks in on his wife with fireman and gets all mad (despite him having been engaged sexually with the neighbor man for some time. But wife sim didn't know about that). So they divorce. Husband sim leaves, never to be heard from again.
Eventually wife and a fireman move in together, into a new house. A fresh start. Then it's time for the baby, or should I say, BABIES! Twins! She pops out two beautiful baby girls! And despite the fact that they're not biologically his, fireman loves them all the same.
They're one big happy family for years. Fireman works (though I can't remember if he keeps that career), wife raises the chillens. Until the girls are in the child stage. Wife starts stepping out. She doesn't even hide it. Just starts having dudes over and bangs them whenever. Fireman is mad but doesn't divorce her. He makes sure the girls get dinner while his wife is banging two dudes one night. He's upset, they argue, but they stay together for a while. Wife eventually leaves. I have her move out into a house with a bunch of guys and they have there own story, but Bang House is a story for a different day.
Fireman is now a single dad, raising two grade school age daughters. He hires a nanny and works, coming home in the evenings to help with homework and make spaghetti, spend quality time. Eventually the girls are teens. He makes sure to intimidate their boyfriends and talk to them regularly about their problems.
Then they're off to college (sims university) and his work is done! He successfully raised two teenage daughters practically by himself and they weren't even his! Time to kick back and enjoy his life as a single man! He's finally free. And that's when things get dicey. I don't know why I did it. I'm not a sick person, I swear. Looking back, I think I just wanted to see if it was even possible.
One day, daughter one decides to go home and visit the only dad she ever knew. She drives her little rickety car home, has spaghetti with pops like always. They watch tv and talk. I remember thinking they looked so cute, after everything they'd been through. She has the best dad in the world, and he has this beautiful, studious young daughter. And they're just joking around on the couch as usual. That's when I decided to pull the trigger. And have her flirt with him.
He's IMMEDIATELY receptive. It was like it was a long time coming. Everything happened so fast and soon, they were woohooing in the hot tub I bought him as a "your daughters graduated from high school" present. Then in the bed. Then the tub again. This guy is just running a train in his daughter. I couldn't even stop them at a certain point.
Then they got engaged. Some real Woody Allen shit right there. Except, it was never really in question who her father was. He was there when she was born! He raised her, by himself half the time! This was abhorrent. Anyway so they got married and the other twin attended the ceremony like it was the just the most normal thing in the world.
