* ''[[AmericanGirlsCollection American Girls Premiere]]'', which was developed by The Learning Company but uses the Opening Night engine. What was supposed to be an edutainment game turned out to be a laugh-fest in the hands of the player, making historical characters like Felicity Merriman into cannon fodder for various parodies and crude jokes.

It also doesn't help that both ''Opening Night'' and ''Premiere'' lacked a profanity filter, making it possible for the characters to say rude things.

A subtrope of VideoGameCrueltyPotential, this deals with games where the [[AGodIsYou unseen God-like player character]] can manipulate the in-game universe in such a manner that those little digital souls suffer as much as virtually possible. Want to be TheCaligula? Like doing things ForTheLulz [[ForTheEvulz and Evulz]]? Your sickest dreams have come true!

** Many players find the desperation actions low-aspiration Sims in ''The Sims 2'' perform to be highly amusing, and some will drive them to aspiration failure on purpose just to watch them dance with mops, talk to volleyballs (no really) and [[LampshadeWearing dance with lampshades on their heads]].

* ''RollerCoasterTycoon'' allows quite a bit of this.

* Since the ''{{Spore}}'' Creature Creator's release, thousands of videos on Website/YouTube have been cropping up of horrible, useless creatures made in Spore. Such as the delightful [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CnHI_CkK27o "The Depressing Stick."]]

** This [[RealTrailerFakeMovie trailer]] for [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MMXME2pm83c The Sims]] shows how [[{{Deconstruction}} horrible]] this would be in real life.

* ''VideoGame/WarcraftII'' and ''VideoGame/{{Starcraft}}'', by clicking on the critters enough times, you can cause a harmless explosion that consumes the critter and only the critter. Why would you do this? Well, [[ForTheEvulz why not]]? In these games, (and possibly other RTS's) it is impossible to disband units. If a player wants ot get rid of units (most likely to free up supply), the only way to do so is to suicide the unit or attack them directly.

* ''{{Nintendogs}}''. Sure, you can feed it and walk it and love it and all that, but sometimes that gets a little old. So you spice things up by oh, say, not feeding or cleaning it for a week. Or ramming it repeatedly with a Mario Kart. Or "accidentally" tripping it up with the Jump Rope. Or scaring it with the toy military chopper (with "Flight of the Valkyries" as background music!). Or throwing a Moai Statue at it. Or ignoring it for hours on end and watching/listening to its shrill barking and whining as it wonders where you've gone to. And that's not even getting into the OTHER things you can do to it: the kind that'll change your dog's personality from a sweet-natured pup into an aggressive, snarling hellhound that bites you if you dare to pet it.
