Looking for advice on how to torment Sims
June 11, 2006 9:35 PM   Subscribe

A few years ago I found an entertaining article online, where the author described playing Sims 2 to make life as difficult as possible for his main character. I seem to remember that he made the character colossally ugly, and that he made the house into a maze of twist little passages, all alike. I can't seem to find the article on the basis of these clues, though; does anyone remember this better than I do?

Oops, there was a follow-up piece as well.

An older somethingawful piece on the Sims is also entertaining.

GameSpy's Fargo did something similar way back in the day, but the article is no longer available. I recall him putting his Sim's toilet in the middle of the living room, having a party with tons of people in the same room and watching his Sim do the "gotta go" dance.

Check out the book "Sex, Drugs and Cocoa Puffs" by Chuck Klosterman. It contains a hilarious chapter about playing and tormenting the Sims.

Amazon.com reviews of Sims and Sims 2 have some interesting anecdotes as well.

The second SomethingAwful piece was the one I remembered; I had forgotten all about the adventures of Marduk the Flayer. Many thanks!

Oh man, this question brings back great memories of holidays spent playing the sims at my cousins' house, trapping the main character between four outward-facing refrigerators and watching him slowly starve.
