15 Sims Fails That Are As Hilarious As They Are Horrifying

For everyone who grew up in the 90s or early 2000s, you know exactly how addicted The Sims was. Something about that weird game made time zoom by as though it were nothing and then all of the sudden it would be night time and your parents would yell at you for wasting a whole day in front of a screen. Well, we are all adults now and no one can tell us to stop right? Lucky for you, The Sims is going to be made available in an all new way that will make it even easier to spend time with your fictional families!

While there are still plenty of Sims games on computers, there has never really been a good mobile version. Sure, there was that "Free Play" option but it just wasn't the same. Now, there is a new game coming out soon called The Sims Mobile and from the look of the trailer, it's going to be awesome.

You will be able to build a Sim, make their home, and do all the same things you can in the original. There are also some new features involving the generations and some "heirlooms" you can pass down that seem pretty cool, but mostly it's just exciting that the Sims will now be portable.

The Sims gave us a lot of gifts in our childhoods, most of which happened when it went wrong. Because it was a computer game, glitches happened. It also didn't help that we were all using cheat codes that probably affected the regular programming, but it gave us some of the funniest things to go back and look at.

So, in celebration of the new Sims game, here are 15 of the best Sims fails that are guaranteed to get you excited to play again!

1. That's not what a fish should look like...

2. You should probably join the circus

3. My eyes are... down here?

4. Is this what E.T. looked like as a baby?

5. Who doesn't want their very own shadow horse?

6. When someone asks me to smile:

7. What flavor of cake is this?

8. That is an interesting looking cat... was it a rescue?

9. Talk about unwanted house guests...

10. Your hands are just SO broken

11. That's one way to get the baby clean

12. Dude, now is not the time

13. This is not okay...

14. Is that video game interesting? Is it real good?

15. This seriously makes me cackle-laugh every single time I see it.

Do you think you will play the new Sims game when it comes out on mobile? It looks pretty cool right?

87-Year-Old Grandma Uses Microsoft Paint To Create Beautiful Masterpieces

Using the computer as a kid was kind of a privilege that you didn't get everyday. Kids now have little computers in their pockets from a young age, so probably a lot of the novelty has worn off. Even when we weren't allowed to use the internet, there was one program that would entertain us for hours, and that was Microsoft Paint.  The simple software that came preinstalled on every computer was basically everyone's favorite thing. The only thing we would use more than Paint was probably Solitaire. Between Paint and Solitaire we could have spent hours on the


'The Oregon Trail' Is Back And More Portable Than Ever, And We Can't Wait To Die Of Dysentery

Growing up, we didn't really have the same advanced video game as kids today have. We had to use our imaginations. Sure, looking back it was a little bit less than impressive, but honestly, we had more fun playing those simple games than almost any of these extremely complicated ones. Oregon Trail is perhaps one of the most notorious and iconic games that we played during computer class. It seemed to be loaded up onto every school computer, so that we could learn all about traveling on the frontier, including the struggles that came with it. Sure, about 90% of


There's Going To Be A 'Ghostbusters' Version Of Pokemon Go And We Know Who We're Gonna Call

Watching Ghostbusters as a kid basically meant that we all believed in ghosts to some extent. Sure, we knew Slimer wasn't going to come around the corner because Spengler had him under control, but also, what if he did? We weren't about to get caught off guard, so we spent all our free time rewatching the movie, catching up on the cartoon, and playing with every Ghostbusters-themed toy we could find to make sure our ghost catching skills were up to snuff. Personally, I know that I had countless dreams where I would be chasing the ghosts around my neighborhood


The Trailer For The Mr. Rogers Documentary Has Been Released And It's Absolutely Heartwarming

Few things are as sacred as Mr. Rogers' Neighborhood. The classic PBS children's show was on for 31 seasons, and even though it hasn't been filmed since 2001, it's still beloved to this day. Fred Rogers hosted the show with a kindness that can best be described as neighborly - at least that's what I think he would want to be described as. He was sweet, caring, and honest with his viewers, teaching them all the things they needed to learn.Every show started with the same song, while Rogers pulled on a cozy cardigan and asked us all if
