    and i dont know if this counts but Runescape - Luring people in to the wilderness with valuables then killing and stealing them
    Personally, I liked luring beginners deep into lvls 80-90 of the Wilderness with the promise of riches, and watch them be devoured by the Greater Demons.

    An ancient game: Star Wars - The Phantom Menace. On the Tatooine level...well, I...I killed them all. And not just the men. But the women! And the children too! (Skip to 3:10 in the video.)



    I believe I composed some theme music for this delightful carnage.
    I hated that level at 3mins

    Did you ever kill everyone in the city as well?

    I need to know I'm not the only psychopathic Qui-Gon Jinn here.

    That level on Modern Warfare 2. Not a single civilian escaped.



    Then there's the rampages, but they're not so bad.

    I always check to see if I can kill the children in any game I play, most of the time you can't, so I settle with kiling their parents and letting them watch, on RPG's I like to put the parents corpses in the childrens bed, or under the bathor something for them to find as a nice surprise.

    Hmmm, what else? Well, I'm sure there's more, but it's 4am.

    In Rollercoaster Tycoon, I would build a ride then put a hole or a lake right outside the exit, so the people would fall in and get trapped or drown.

    I'd also deliberately build rollercoasters that would crash, and kill a train load of people.

    In GTA4 I flew along the pavement with the helicopter tilted forwards, sending masses of people flying into the air at high speed.

    Also, on Halo PC multiplayer, my friend and I team killed so many people that the entire floor of our CTF base was a mass of blue spartan armor.

    Video games provide us with a safe, healthy environment to vent frustration and anger. But have have you ever done something really ethically questionable on a game before? I know that any of you who have played any of the Grand Theft Auto series will obviously have committed mass murder in game (:p:), but I'm looking for examples of ingenious but dastardly uses of games for essentially cheap thrills.

    I think most of us are guilty of locking a Sim in a room with no door and letting them burn to death... but fire off some of your worst crimes against digital humanity. Rep for the best examples

    Speaking of Sims. I once started playing from one of those default scenarios, instead of starting from scratch...there was a little girl and i put her in the swimming pool and made her swim for hours...she went hungry, she cried and several times automatically got out of the pool...still made her swim. finally she peed by the pool coz i wouldn't let her go to the toilet.

    I'm not sure if I remember her taking a crap...just remember a small puddle near the pool when she was crying - I'm assuming it was only urine...finally after a few more hours of swimming she died
    I felt kinda bad afterwards
    but hey, i gave her a nice grave and made the rest of the family mourn by the side :erm:

    I also tried several times to make strangers walk into women showering, but dunno why that doesn't work :confused:

    When I was younger I'd get on my cousin's playstation, start Sims, build walls around her characters and fast forward till the Grim Reaper showed up. I also used to use the move_object_on cheat and remove their beds while they 'woohoo'ed in their nakedness. I was a warped child.

    • On Fallout 3, when you kill all the little kids in Little Lamplight because they don't deserve to have a good childhood. Also, kill Lucas Simm's kid after his dad dies. For jokes.
    • In Dragon Age, I told everyone to **** off (played as a female char) and when Alistair was confessing his love, I told him to **** off too. Then got jiggy with Leilana.
    • In Brotherhood multiplayer, I got ahead of everyone by about 3000 points, and then proceeded to sit in a crowd of morphed NPC's while I smoke bombed and diversioned for the rest of the match while singing "can't touch this" on the mic.

    At least we're doing something we enjoy. :p: From my experience, people with real lives are often miserable, slaving away to pay a mortgage or having affairs or waging wars.

    A bit lame, but in sims I used to lure all the random characters into the garden, build a fence around them and leave them to die. I'd even phone the police and the pizza guy and lure them in too...

    Ended up with a garden full of gravestones of all the dead sims...

    On those hospital simulation games (Theme Hospital?) I used to whack the heating right up in the waiting rooms and then charge an extortionate amount for drinks from the vending machines. :p: But, really, that's as far as it goes - I don't think I'm sadistic enough. :p:
