Woman Recreates Joe Goldberg From You On The Sims

Since You first hit our screens, it has gained an army of fans who are utterly devoted to the show and its characters. But one fan has taken her love of the unsettling thriller to a whole new level.

Not content with experiencing the show through the medium of television, Keri Lynn from Ohio, the United States, has recreated its creepy protagonist Joe Goldberg on the video game The Sims.

If you've never heard of The Sims - who are you? - or never had the joy of playing it, the game basically allows you to build a virtual world of your own.

But rather than use the game to create avatars who have successful careers, fall in love, and start a family, Keri has given life to You's main cast.

And they're pretty impressive.

Posting her photographs on Facebook, the super fan wrote: "Normal people my age: Married, having children, buying a house, going on flights across the world, etc.

"Me: I'm bored so I'm gonna make Joe Goldberg my neighbour on the sims."

Keri even went to the trouble of captioning the pic of virtual Joe in the style of the 'real life' Joe.

She said: "Hey you... I see you looking through my pics... laughing at your phone...well not really laughing, just maybe a small grin and a bit of air coming out of your nose...but on the inside, you're laughing...I get it...I get you...I knew you'd like my pics...I knew you'd want to show your friends...luckily, I made it public so you can share...I did it for you..."

All in, it took Keri just 25 minutes to create her own killer, complete with the terrifying glass box he built in the first series.

She even went so far as to change his characteristics to ambitious, alluring and a bookworm, and made his lifetime goal to be a serial romantic - just in case there was any doubt about who he was.

Commenting on a pic of him, Keri said: "There are terrifying people in the world. It's important to be safe and that's why I have to do what I'm going to do."

But fans of the series will know that Joe would be nothing without the women in his life, so she created versions of Beck, Love, and Delilah too.

Alongside a photo of Love, Keri wrote: "We're all a little broken. Yet some pieces still manage to fit together."

This is the kind of dedication that Joe would be proud of.
