There is no doubt that one of the most important franchises for Electronic Arts is The Sims, a successful series that just a few weeks ago turned 21 and celebrated with free content for its entire community. With more than 30 million units sold as of the middle of last year, The Sims 4 continues to be a smash hit that has brought together all types of players since its launch in 2014.
One of the most significant elements of the gaming experience in the Maxis title is construction, and the game community has not wasted the powerful creative tools available – and its abundant expansion packs – to bring to life all sorts of famous buildings that we have seen it in movies and on TV.
We continue to celebrate that the popular franchise has now exceeded two decades since its first title arrived by taking a look at these 9 incredible creations that show that the community has impressive creative power.
One of the most famous houses of recent times was already recreated in The Sims 4. Obviously we are referring to the luxurious residence of the Park family that we saw in Parasite and that was invaded by the Kims. We will not go into details about the place since doing so would incur significant spoilers. That is why we will limit ourselves to saying that this virtual version of the famous home will allow us to enter all the corners of the place built in great detail so that every fan of the film can find what they are looking for.
The Big Bang Theory floors
If you’ve always wanted to visit Leonard and Sheldon’s cozy geek apartment from “The Big Bang Theory” series, then with this in-game version of The Sims 4 you can make this dream come true. What’s more, this creation by a fan is so well detailed that, in addition to allowing you to tour the residence of these two scientists, you can visit other places in the building where they live, such as the roof where they do experiments, the laundry room where Sheldon washes Saturday nights and even Penny’s apartment.
The Simpsons house
The most famous house in the world of animation (and perhaps in all popular culture) also has its version within The Sims 4. Many fans of yesteryear may already know each and every one of its rooms perfectly, but, If you are one of those who are still lost in it, this recreation will let you go through it as if you were a member of the family, presenting details that every fan will immediately recognize. Who will be the first to have a beer and sit in Homer’s place?
Another classic movie house, although now from the 80s. This recreation of the iconic home of Tim Burton’s cult film shows us the renewed version that the members of the Deetz family inhabited, with everything and its majestic dining room that left us a music scene to remember, and which the Maitland spirits were trying to recapture. It just looks amazing, although it would have been even better if it had included some spirits, including the crazy Beetlejuice.
The McCallister House from Home Alone
Christmas movie fans know that the huge McCallister family residence is one of those places that would just be amazing to see. Well, now you can also visit the house that the ingenious Kevin defended from thieves with this project in which it is possible to see each and every one of the rooms of the great family that likes to forget and / or lose their children to the end of year partys. Now, will you also get thieves to steal in?
The Friends settings– The Sims 4
In the hit sitcom of the 90s Friends there is not just one famous scene, but several that have been etched forever in many viewers. For that reason some users have built their own versions of those places to visit in The Sims, such as Monica, Rachel, Joey and Chandler’s apartments, as well as the iconic and cozy Central Perk cafe, sofa included, which served as the main meeting point for New York friends under the ever watchful eye of Gunther, their waiter.
The Rivera de Coco family villa
Not all houses created in The Sims 4 are luxurious residences or apartments located in privileged areas. We can also visit more humble and lively places such as the Rivera family’s villa, of the Coco family. The best thing is that the game tools allow it to give it that Mexican touch that we saw embodied in the film and that made it look like a typical Mexican family home. This of course, accompanied by the shoe workshop that the Rivera had as their main source of livelihood.
The mansion of Psycho
If the teacher Alfred Hitchcock had liked video games, we do not doubt that one of the first things he would have done would be to visit the recreation that a fan made of the mansion that we saw in his movie Psycho. But that’s not all, since in addition to detailing each of the rooms in a meticulous way, this project is accompanied by its replica of the Bates Motel. Quite a creative “fanart” (or fan-project?) That pays tribute to this classic of suspense cinema.
Carl Fredicksen’s house from Up
And to conclude, we have what could well be one of the most famous and smallest houses in the world of cinema: that of Mr. Fredicksen that we saw floating through the skies in the movie Up !. Although the home is small, it has many details that allow us to imagine what it looked like in its good years when Carl and Ellie were happily married. In addition, and to give it a more special touch, it has some tied balloons that predict the great adventure that the curmudgeon and noble protagonist will live.
