My time with “The Sims 4” has been very… interesting

This is Melvin.

Melvin is, despite appearances, a vampire. So, every time he goes out into the sun, he sets on fire. Thankfully, this does not do much in terms of killing Melvin, as he is, in fact, immortal.

Welcome to my crazy world of “The Sims 4”, wherewith every time I play it, something crazier than last time seems to occur.

Once while I was playing the Sims 4, a literal demon child appeared, seemingly out of nowhere, and began tormenting my sims by possessing them… and making birds fly everywhere(?) As luck would (not) have it, the demon child escaped from my Sims mansion, and made its way towards town.

Now, before we go any further, I would like to say that is it absolutely *not* Melvin’s fault. He definitely did not interact with a cursed item in-game that said “summon demon” or anything, because he would *never* do something like that.

Much to everyone’s confusion, the demon child began doing snow angels in the middle of town, after having murdered at least eight different sims.

Thankfully, the demon child was put to rest after a mysterious forced utilized a button called “destroy object (debug).” The demon child was no more! Sims everywhere rejoiced with the newfound knowledge that they would *not* be murdered by a demon. Little did they know, however.. that the demon child had only been banished. He was not completely gone!

After some time, Melvin managed to create a teleporter in his own backyard. “This newly created alien technology *certainly* would not draw the attention of the local government,” Melvin thought. And to Melvin’s surprise, it didn’t attract any attention at all. So he delved alongside his friends, Bjorne and the butler, Rangi, into a mysterious alien realm!

What awaited them was an area strangely reminiscent of ‘Skyrim’s’ Blackreach…what, with all the glowing vegetation and stuff.

…and the demon, who for some reason was inside the alien realm.

With that, the demon was gone… hopefully. Melvin had destroyed the teleporter, sealing it, again, hopefully, inside the alien realm that he never wished to venture out to again.

Demons and alien realms aside, many interesting things happen during my time playing The Sims. Whether it’s our power bill not getting paid, resulting in the mansion’s power being switched off, much to everyone’s chagrin, or Bjorne somehow setting the stove on fire just by touching it, there are many interesting things that happen. Once, one of my cats was about to be taken away by “Pet care worker.” So I did the “destroy object (debug) command on the pet care worker. It was like I was Thanos! One time, the butler decided to sneeze on the food he was cooking. What a great chef, he’s practicing all the safety measures for the COVID quarantine! Apparently, these are the ones for “The Sims”:

  1. Do not wear masks, especially when cooking. Don’t even think about it.
  2. Sneeze on all the food, this is safe and is a great idea.
  3. Follow rules one and two.

Obviously, those are all jokes. You should always wear your mask when you are out in public or around strangers. You should also never sneeze on food, even if there is not a global quarantine happening.

Once, I managed to turn Melvin’s head into a dresser.

I think the moral of the story here is to not mess around with debug commands; otherwise, you might end up either A)  breaking your game irreparably (How have I not done this already?) or B) turning your sims head into furniture. Either way, maybe safer to just not mess with debug commands.

That’s the sort of crazy stuff my Sims get into, anyway.  What kind of crazy experiences have you had in The Sims? Let me know in the comments!

All of these experiences are a part of the ever-expanding Melvin Series, which you can watch here.
