This Sims 4 fun fact thread is endlessly intriguing

Y can’t Sims crawl?

Thanks to a reader, this lengthy thread of Sims 4 fun facts from Twitter user OnlyAbiDoang came across my desk and I couldn’t look away. Even if you haven’t played The Sims series yet you likely know someone who has: or at least experienced it by osmosis through some sort of weird factoid throughout the years. It’s that ubiquitous. But I didn’t realize just how wacky I could get.

Here are a few choice facts from the thread:

  • If you get struck by lightning in The Sims 4: Seasons you either die outright or you can wield the power of electricity like a superhero
  • You can spy on the Grim Reaper (yes, Death himself) using a listening bug and hear his conversations
  • Normally only child Sim characters can see elaborate imagination sequences playing out, but an adult with the childish trait can secretly view them too
  • You can complain about food poisoning and get compensation

The thread goes on for a long while, and it’s great “weekend reading” material. It’s essentially a series of Easter eggs and glitches/exploits, some of which yield some crazy results that are hilarious both in and out of context.

Every so often I dive back into The Sims and marvel at how well it’s been supported over the years, and how many quality of life features have been implemented since launch. It doesn’t hold my attention as much as a lot of other games, but it’s a decent reminder of how great Maxis could be as a studio.
