Friends is one of the greatest American sitcoms to ever grace television. And grace television is what it still does, eleven years after we vacated the most iconic apartment building in New York, with constant reruns on channels around the globe.
So it came as no surprise to find out that one absolute legend of the internet had devoted his time to recreating the influential comedy's characters and apartments in Maxis' wonderful The Sims 4! Genius. Maybe someone could do that for Firefly, perhaps? Please?
From Monica's two bed open plan apartment to the mismatched and rustic charms of Central Perk, no stone has been left unturned by imgur user and superfan IanRoach. Check them out!
Friends In The Sims 4
How good does this look compared to the set apartment? Unreal, man!
How do you go about translating "WE WERE ON A BREAK!" into Simlish?
Chandler & Joey's Apartment
Seriously painstaking and incredible work here. Well I say painstaking, it's all fun isn't it?
Here's another lovely birds-eye view of the dilapidated majesty of the boy's apartment.
"Hi, I'm Chandler. Could I BE wearing any more clothes?"
How ridiculously spot on are all of these homages? this has definitely made me "feel so warm in my hollow tin chest." Although the boy's apartment is missing the recliner seats, epic entertainment unit and canoe, but these are minor gripes over some amazing creations!
IanRoach, We Salute You
If you loved Roach's Friends homage, he's even gone out of his way to recreate the characters from other beloved sitcoms such as Arrested Development, Seinfeld and The Office (U.S.)!

If you are a proud owner of The Sims 4, you can download IanRoach's creations by searching the Origin ID "ian8000" in the Sims gallery! I'll be doing that later, for sure! Until then check out more of the awesomeness on his imgur channel!
