What’s the most messed up thing you’ve done in a video game?

There was a PC game, years ago. It was before SIMS. The point was to colonize a planet (it might have been Earth). You started with two cells and worked your way up to industrialized civilization. I built up a nice little world, happy people, thriving crops… but I had an endgame in mind. I started intentionally making bad calls. By the time I was done, there was no evidence of life anywhere. I even killed the bacteria in the soil. I destroyed everything. I was a ruthless god!
It was awesome. And strangely satisfying.

I don't really do horrendous acts in videogames all that often, but sometimes I save the game before murdering all of the NPCs involved in an irritating sidequest. Makes me feel better about what they had to put me through.

I bury pitfalls in Animal Crossing and push my animal neighbors into them. Then I bash them over and over with my net. The horror.

Large-scale: Plague Inc.
Small-scale: A long time ago, I remember tormenting the villagers of Animal Crossing: City Folk with the net a couple of times.

I don't go out of my way to be mean to NPCs, and I usually try to take non-lethal approaches to situations if possible. However, if an NPC starts being a colossal ****heel, they're getting sent straight into the Earth's Core (also known as Satan's Cardboard Box of Dumb ***holes).

Destroyed all the houses in the city in the Transformers video game.

Heck, I liked that game because you can destroy everything.

I mean, I guess the Genocide run in Undertale... though I still can't beat Sans. I discovered that your attacks do the most damage if you meet the requirements to spare a monster and then you attack it. I don't know if I even want to finish the game, I do mean things in games all the time but this is the only game that makes me feel bad for it.

Also, in Metal Gear Solid 3, I was doing a "Genocide Run" of that game ( not that I was basing this off of Undertale mind you, because this was long before that game came out ) and seeking out everyone I could to kill them. I ended up trying to find interesting ways to kill or mess with the enemies. I'd throw poison animals at them while holding them up, so they couldn't move, and the poison slowly took them. I'd hold them up, beat them up several times, make them think they were safe, then kill them. Shoot their limbs one at a time. Put them to sleep and then throw them into water so they'd drown in their sleep.

But the most messed up MGS3 kill was in the rocky mountain area, I'd kill a dude, let the buzzards eat him, kill those buzzards, throw the meat out so that someone else would come along and eat it, kill him, rinse and repeat until the last guy, who by association had eaten the flesh of many of his comrades. Then I just drag him off a cliff.

That’s...unpleasant. To say the least.

Killing hookers, anal probing livestock, building roller coaters that guarantee the deaths of hundreds of people...y'know fun stuff like that...
