Recreating TV shows, characters and real world locations is a time-honoured tradition in gaming, from Walter White and a Kendrick Lamar album popping up in GTA 5 to the opening of Game of Thrones being remade in Little Big Planet 2 – hell, someone even recreated the entire country of Denmark in Minecraft.
The Sims 4 has barely been out a week but given its extensive customisation options it's already proving a playground for people with enough free time to sift through 500 shades of wallpaper to find the one that most closely resembles that of the bedroom of their favourite TV character.
This early Friends effort is pretty solid, with screen grabs posted by a gamer on Reddit showing Monica's, Phoebe's, Ross's and Joey and Chandler's apartments along with Central Perk, with serious attention to detail:
Note: Exposed brickwork, copper pans
"Plees, dag vous neenle aws?" (genuinely "How you doin'?" in Simlish)
They got the wooden pillars right too, even if they did break the fourth wall
Joey and Chandler's apartment
That bar stool positioning, and kitchen paraphernalia!
But sadly the La-Z-Boys don't recline.
A+ for soft lighting, neon signs and classic orange couch
A solid effort. Needs more margaritas
Guitar was a nice touch, missing Mike and Antique Bird Cage LARGE though.
Yes they even made the hallway connecting the apartments.
