Video games aren't just a form of escape. They also let us live out fantasies that we otherwise wouldn't experience.

Not all of us can be NBA stars, so there's the NBA 2K series for that. Not all of us will be able to drive fancy racing cars in our lifetime, hence the need for Gran Turismo. Only a few of us can ever become the dictator of our own nations, so thank God for the Civilization series. 

These are just a few examples of quality simulation titles that allow us to pretend that we're somebody other than our 9-to-5 work drone selves.

Not everyone though wants to be an NBA star, a car racer, or a dictator. People have diverse fantasies. Need proof? This odd bunch of simulation games below should tell you that, indeed, some people just want to experience life as a robot vacuum cleaner.

Here now are the ten weirdest videogame sims in existence:

1) Robot Vacuum Simulator 2013


What's going on: You control a vacuum cleaner that in real life is prized for its automatic cleaning features. You go around in a room picking up bits of molecule dust while sweet jazz music plays in the background.

This is the videogame for: People that have always wanted to control an automatic vacuum cleaner, neat freaks, and people the appreciate the simple joys of keeping a floor clean.

2) Corporate Lifestyle Simulator


What's going on: You're just a regular corporate guy when all of a sudden the entire office is turned into a *surprise* zombie hell!

Wait, what? Isn't this supposed to simulate sitting on a desk all day while typing on a keyboard? Well, yes, but the game only simulates the part that every office-going person really wants to do: destroy the office!

This is the videogame for: People that have, once and for all, decided to take matters into their own hands and destroy the corporate devil that has taken their soul. Or people bored of their jobs. Most probably the latter.

3) Surgeon Simulator 2013


What's going on
: You're the worst surgeon in the world, and you have absolutely no control over your hands and fingers, and the life of your patient is in your hands.

This is the videogame for: Anyone who needs to release pent-up feelings of slicing open another person's ribcage, and quack doctors who didn't pass board exams.

NEXT: Be the boss of a toilet and poop empire!
