Super Spoofery: The Sims Goes Horror

By John Walker on November 2nd, 2009 at 9:15 pm.

We've all been there.

College Humor gets it right pretty often, and this remarkably well produced Sims spoof is perfectly aimed. Sure, we’ve all told our own version of the time we made our Sims die in a puddle of their own urine, but CH realises those jokes with impressive production values and a superb horror movie vibe. In fact, it’s because we’re all so familiar with the themes that it works so well. Watch it below.

    Hah, brilliant. It was a lot better than I expected.

  2. Kua says:

    I frequent TheOnion terribly often but haven’t really discovered College Humour. Feel free to link other highlights.

    That was great, totally different from what I expected.

    Oh gawd, that made me LOL hard! Truly spot on. Can’t awit until they get the full vid out :)

    Head over to their site and watch the Street Fighter: The Later Years series. Comedy Gold. The Minesweeper movie trailer is awesome too.

  9. Gorgeras says:

    Best movie since Minesweeper.

    That is how they should do a Sims movie – but they won’t (maybe I’m exaggerating – it’s at least good for a short). Oh dear … what will the real The Sims: The Movie be like?

    FUND IT

    dear god. now i will never look at the sims the same way. especially the removal of ladder. it was always so much fun.

    :D

    great stuff

    That’s interesting. I often play the Sims while jumping up and down on a couch and blubbering, “I’m having fun, I’m having fun, I’m having fun….”

    The Diamond above his head should have been red, not green. None of that man’s needs were being furfilled. Things like that are what annoys me about College Humour – they have these great concepts and high production values but just fail on the attention to detail. They are often funny but never clever. Which is a pity.

    That said, I’m glad someone has made that trailer. Something about people realising the sort of silly thoughts that wonder across gamers minds in short films makes me fuzzy and warm inside.

    slightly amusing

    John, I think you might’ve meant “College Humor doesn’t get it right too often, but this remarkably well produced Sims spoof is perfectly aimed.”

  18. PJ says:

    It doesn’t trump minesweeper in humor or quality (in that it actually looks like a plausible movie trailer) but I lol’d :)

  22. help with snoring says:

    I prefer a game like The Sims because it’s like everyday life…

    Great stuff, absolutely hilarious.

  25. Lance Glassman says:

    I cannot imagine I’ve ever found some sort of website with this several commentary on there!

  26. Gunner says:

    Oh, well, this looks a little wrong in many ways!
