Twitter Users Share Their Craziest Sim Death Stories

Twitter Users Share Craziest Sim Death Stories

Twitter users are sharing the most hilarious ways that their Sims have died.

If you’ve been around the internet for even a tiny amount of time, you’ve probably wandered across The Sims, the quirky people-simulating game from Electronic Arts. Although initially intended as an open sandbox game where you can live out your real-life fantasies in a semi-realistic virtual world, it has since become (at least for some) a bizarre murder simulator where users figure out new and interesting ways to kill their sims.

There are some pretty standard methods of implementing sim-death, such as deleting all the doors to their abode and watching them go insane in their house-cum-prison, or vanishing all the toilets so that they continually wet themselves until they expire from sheer embarrassment. 

But those have all been done before. Twitter user @LipsTaco inadvertently started a Tweetstorm of users sharing their most interesting tales of how their sims wound up dead.

It all started, as these things often do, with a single mom trying to make her way in the world after her husband lit himself on fire while making hot dogs--a story that some people might find all too real.

This naturally got a reply from another user on how they too lost their sim to BBQ-related immolation.

This became another fire-related death, but this time due to trying to ignite a stick of incense.

Which naturally transitioned into laughing so hard that the sim literally expires.

Death can even become a family affair, with one sim dying, haunting the house they died in, and frightening other sims to death as well so they too haunt the same house. It’s like a chain-gang of hauntings.

There’s also the mundane-but-unfortunate deaths, like getting your tie caught on a fax machine. Happens to the best of us.

There’s something poetic to The Sims. Something that teaches us all how fleeting life can be and how life should be cherished precisely because of how fragile it is. Thank you sims, for reminding us that life is precious!
