I’m not being ghoulish. Many people play The Sims as virtual torturer or tormentor. They put Sims in door-less rooms and watch them go crazy. They link their Sims in matrimony and then ruin their marriages with a meddling maid. They starve them. They essentially twist the heads on their virtual dolls, then throw them in the microwave on high for 60 seconds. The Sims Medieval, technically a March-scheduled PC game about creating and furthering a kingdom toward one of several grand ambitions – a game about completing quests, unlocking Sims characters, and improving buildings along the way – is probably going to be another virtual lab for virtual torment.
