The Sims 3 Trailer Tells Disturbing Tale


This French ad for "Les Sims 3" kinda makes you worry about the marketing team--I can only assume / hope that something got lost in translation. We'll find out for sure when the Maxis-developed lifestyle simulator sequel hits PC on February 20, 2009.

    I remember inviting my neighbors over in Sims 2 and then trapping them in a room by deleting the doors then adding windows all around it.

    They would plead for food and hygiene but my dude just stands there watching. Eventually they'll die off and I have to clean the mess by calling in the maid.

    Hmm, I should have too trapped the maid.

      I believe The Sims 2 is one of the only games that actually let's you kill babies.

        Babies and I think toddlers were off limits. It was too sad to see them die. Everything else goes.

        I thought Child Services took them away.

        The reaper carried off a couple of my kids after I walled them inside my basement, if I remember correctly.

      lol the sims was the best accidental murder simulator ever. So many poor sims trapped, alone, covered in their own feces, and starving to death.

      Is it bad if thinking and wring about this made me laugh?

      I would just create a blank lot and leave a bunch of sims to fight each other and poop all over the place, and eventually die. It was kind of funny at 4x speed.

      I built a beautiful house shaped like a bird and populated it with lesbians.

        Haha, that reminds me of when I gave some girls a copied CD of the original Sims (OMG I was a pirate ARRR!) in my college dorm. It got passed around and when the lesbians played it they would make a house and put their "crush" girl or whatever and some bits of scandals broke out when one girl found out she was a mate for one of the lesbian girls.

        The RA had to tell them to shut the fuck up.

        Funny as I stopped playing in a week and these girls continued to play through it through the entire school year. None of them dropped out due to it.
