The Sims 3 is an excellent and open ended life simulator, but letting people do whatever they want to with their Sims characters isn’t always the best idea – for the Sims. Following are four ways Sims players torture the crap out of their Sims 3 characters.
Depriving Sims of their daily needs
The Sims 3 is structured in a way that allows players to control their Sims, but each Sim is given a set of needs that must be met including the need to use the bathroom, eat, bathe, be social and have fun. Given the rules for the Sims, most Sims players have wondered what would happen if their Sims character went too long without using the potty, taking a bath, eating some grub, or anything else that would be considered Sims torture.
Creating relationship problems
Sims characters are just like real people in that they form networks of people and build personal relationships with them. One ways that Sims 3 players love to torture the crap out of their Sims is by creating relationship problems with their Sims and other in-game Sims by purposely neglecting friends, making their Sims cheat on one another, and just being downright rude to other Sims characters.
What fun is being rude and creating relationship woes between other Sims if there isn’t going to be some fighting involved. You might not have ever been in a real fist fight in your life, but that doesn’t mean that your Sims have to suffer the same fight. There’s nothing like seeing what your Sim’s “got” and starting a fight with other Sims is the perfect way to see if your Sim character can best the other wimpy Sims in their community.
Overworking your Sims is the number one way that Sims 3 players torture their Sims characters. In real life, you try your best to avoid doing any work as much as you possibly can – heck, you’re playing a video game for Christ’s sake – but you overwork your Sims 3 character to the point of exhaustion. Sims spend their entire day reading cook books, exercising, meeting new people, fixing broken house items, and more – but you spend your day sitting on ass playing the Sims 3.
