More Sims 2 Adventures

The best times of erm‘s life were reenacting It by Stephen King using The Sims 2. Well, the portions of my life I spent on The Sims, anyway. Now to virtually scrapbook some of the more interesting moments of that time.

Look at this:


Someone, someone talented, took the time to design Evil Clown makeup as a game modification. Why?

I mean, I used it. Obviously I didn’t take the time to download myself a nice clown suit for Pennywise but really, that face is all that matters. But apart from me, who out there wanted to play an evil clown Sim?


Read “Hiyuh Georgie!” in Tim Curry’s evil clown voice. Do it.

Now this:


This was the first time I saw this happen. If your astronomically-minded Sim looked through the telescope during daylight hours, often they’d end up spying on one of your other Sims, doing who knows what, and then somehow, after but a couple of minutes of your Sim being all “I shouldn’t be watching this but I just can’t stop,” the spied-upon Sim would show up and smack the spy around a bit.

Naturally I took this as an opportunity for seduction.


Yes. How romantic.

These ones are friends of Beverly’s:


That face in the back there is the face you make when your boyfriend gets rejected for trying to kiss your friend right in front of you. Like literally in the same room, with you not even doing anything that could even possibly distract you – though in The Sims as long as you’re on the property, you’ll notice the cheating, but, still. Who does that? Oh right. Me.

Muah ha ha ha.

This was not from my It days. I just liked how nonchalant everyone is about having both a fire truck and a UFO arriving at their house in the middle of the night.


Yeah the college mascots got really annoying, so I killed one of them. And apparently as ghosts they don’t ever change back into non-mascot wear, so:


Look at this:


I can’t get anyone in real life to pose this nicely for me!

And then, the streaking.


This cheerleader here hung around doing the school cheer, doing her homework, socializing at random, etc. But then my roommates started streaking and she was perpetually shocked by it for like two hours.


Dude you’ve been here for like ever. The best part is that judging by the layered thought bubbles there she’s reacting constantly to ALL of them all at once all the time.


Process your thoughts better, is all I’m saying.


OK this






The WORST College Roommate… in The Sims 2

erm had some bad roommates in her time, and sometimes was the bad roommate, if we’re being honest. But. I also had the pleasure of observing/interfering with probably the worst roommate ever via The Sims 2.


that face though

Adventures in The Sims 2

I (erm) once made a family of nuns. I think the reason I did this was because I was planning to orphan some Sim children and I wanted them to go and live in a nice little convent, so I needed the nuns. But before the orphaning could begin, first they had to get down to the real business.


The take home message is that I was a horrible interior decorator in this game.

Let’s move on to this guy. I did not make this guy. But I did make him a playable character.


He made some very expressive facial expressions.

Also this is exhibit B in my terrible interior decorating skills. Where’s all the art?


Those two (pictured above) bred, and one of their daughters started making stupid faces so I guess what I learned was that the tendency to make stupid facial expressions is an inheritable trait in the Sims 2.


I honestly have no idea what she could possibly have been so mad about.


Bathtubs and barbeques, huh?

I took the picture because I thought their cloud-watching skills were funny, but I actually remember what I was doing with these young women which might in fact be funnier. I had these two Sims that both had the “romance” orientation, so having 10 lovers at once scored a lot of points. But I wanted them to end up together, and breaking up with 20 different people seemed like too much work. So I scheduled two events: first, have all the girlfriends of that guy show up and cloud-watch until he came home and flirted, in front of them, with a random townie.


Then I did it again with the guys.

It was really funny watching 10 jaded lovers slap my Sims one by one.

But seriously why do all the clouds at Sim State look like bathtubs.


These ladies preferred to sleep in their underwear, so when people died before they got changed in the morning the visuals got a little weird.


Oh and I’m almost positive that this one didn’t die in her underwear, but she was resurrected in her underwear, so. OK.


Maybe I shouldn’t judge but I don’t think that’s the most appropriate face to make when surviving death.

(what is that wallpaper though)
