Just because you lost me as a friend, doesn't mean you gained me as an enemy. I'm bigger than that. I still want to see you eat, just not at my table.
So those of us that are gamers have probably played a game at some point and had something really stupid, really interesting, or really wild happen to us or our character. This topic's for those stories. Tell us!
The wildest I've got is the one time I was playing The Sims (I think it was 3?) and I killed so many Sims making a graveyard that the game gently reminded me it's a life simulation game.
I also had (also in 3) a Sim family with a mom, dad, and a toddler, made in CAS. The mom drowned in the pool, and the dad proceeded to completely quit life. Like, he wouldn't even look after his son, he ended up losing his son to the social worker. I am now super careful with my Sims so they don't randomly die.
Honey you can't dilute a war crime.
So, I was playing ts3 and I'd cheated some dig spots onto a lot bc... reasons. And my sim was just casually digging. And I got a notification about the sky getting dark. And I... like I didn't know what it meant? And I didn't pay it any mind. Just kept digging.
Well a short while later, all of a sudden a meter fell and crushed my sim, killing her instantly. I was left stunned for several moments because I didn't know that was a Thing tbh.
So I played Among Us for the first time when I had two of my nephews staying at my house for the weekend. One of the nephews was a total sweetheart and walked me through how to play the game as I was a total newb.
For several rounds I was just a crew member so I was familiarizing myself with how to do the different tasks.
Then it happened. I. Was. The impostor! I was pretty excited.
but I had no idea what I was doing and I couldn’t ask my helpful nephew how to play impostor without telling everybody in the room that I was, in fact, the impostor.
My other nephew was standing near me when I finally figured out how to kill a crew member. (I had tried several times but I wasn’t pushing the right button LOL) but I figured it out and killed the nephew.
He was so fucking pissed off that he immediately started shouting that I killed him and I was the impostor.
I was so mad! He was being a sore loser and a brat after that so we had him cool down in the guest room for a half hour before letting him play.
And that’s the story of how my first time being an impostor was totally ruined.
