Once I had four sims participating in a eating contestat the festival, and all of them died from starvation.
so my sims just found a message in a bottle
ok i dunno if this really counts but i laugh about it whenever i think of it but it also haunts me a little so HERE IT IS
when sims 2 first came out i was about 9, and even though i’d played sims 1 round my friend’s house i still didn’t really understand the game. for some absurd reason i thought that every house had to have a 2nd floor, so i made a second floor, but didn’t have enough money for walls - so i literally had a house with a staircase on the outside of the walls leading up to a 2nd floor which was actually just a roof with a couple of beds on it. the family was a mother, father and daughter, and as soon as i moved them in i made it so the mother got pregnant. inevitably, chaos ensued in the form of some sort of staircase hell; everyone was starving and peeing everywhere, and as the father was trying to get upstairs the mother was trying to get downstairs. after a while of flailing their arms about for not being able to go on the stairs, the father died. i didn’t know the grim reaper was even a thing on the sims at that age, and i was scared of everything when i was kid, so as soon as the music started and he appeared, i started screaming. my dad then ran upstairs and ran into my room with a look on his face like he expected to see me being killed or something, and i ended up hugging him and crying for about an hour. while i was crying i saw the mother go downstairs but then get trapped by the father’s headstone, and she then died, which then resulted in the daughter getting taken away. I WAS OFF TO A ROLLICKING GOOD START IN MY SIMS CAREER
So my Sim’s stove caught on fire while she was cooking, and she was in the middle of putting it out herself when the fire trucks came. But instead helping put the fire out, this dumbass firefighter went into the bathroom and cringed in the corner while my Sim put the fire out herself.
And we’re not going to talk about the message in the top right corner.
