If you're looking for a true-to-life human life simulator then The Sims isn't your cup of digital tea, but if you embrace the inherent strangeness found when The Sims are left to their own devices then real life may pale in comparison.
Sims strangeness is generally whimsical and kept T for Teen, but as you'd expect from a video game that simulates real life things can get mighty dark, like killing a Sim by drowning him then make other Sims wear swimwear to his funeral dark.
People who were willing to confess to their Sims related crimes shared some of their darkest moments playing The Sims during an Ask Reddit session, and their answers were funny, horrifying and horrifyingly funny! (Contains NSFW language)
