How does it feel?

There are lots of games with levels modeled after New York, London, Paris, Tokyo, etc. but what about lesser cities like Dublin, Reykjavik, Houston, or Vancouver?

Do you happen to live in one of the smaller cities, and how did it feel to play in a level modeled after places you are familiar with?

Unfortunately I don't know of any levels modeled after my home city even though it's sometimes mentioned in games just because it's fairly iconic. But I have played in some levels of cities that I traveled to after playing, and it's kind of eary to stand in the same place you have played levels. Alternatively, actually going to Las Vegas one time has completely ruined Las Venturas for me so I can't play it without feeling depressed that it's not as realistic as Vegas.

The only game I know that features my city only based it on downtown, and honestly it was miniaturized and just feels like any other downtown. There was nothing identifying about it except for one fountain.

I know what you mean. Standing around Battery Point New York and seeing it looks just like GTA IV, it was like phasing in and out of playing GTA IV.

Hong Kong and France have no guns, but are protesting tyranny.

The US has guns, but does nothing about tyranny.

Perhaps they will if somebody takes those guns.

Sounds like Philly?

>>7
No. It's not Philly and I'm not going to tell you even if you were right.

Oddly enough, the only one based on my hometown is an interactive fiction game that the author based on her hometown (also mine). It was strange to come across it, but like >>2 says, levels are always shaved down so they don't feel like the real territory.

Americans look forward to the stock market crash because they think that they'll be able to buy homes cheaply.

Americans don't realize that when the US Ponzi economy collapses, ATM cards won't work, banks will close, companies will shut, cash will be worthless, the water and electricity won't work, there will be no government workers to transfer titles, there will be roving mobs of starving people, and there will be no police to protect property.

No i've never seen my home town in a video game. It only has a few tens thousands of people. There was one set in a major city in the same country and i think the developers were going for a representation of the whole country thru the city (because the map doesn't look very much like the real one). I even found a house that looks just like my own.

Part of the reason Americans love the police state is that the government made Americans dependent on the government.

The government steals money from taxpayers to give to the lazy and outlaws feeding the homeless and starting a business.

The government bans guns so Americans must rely on the Gestapo for protection.

No one dares criticizes the government if they will lose their food stamps, Obamacare, Obamaphones, and Section 8.

Yes. There is quite a few games set in Osaka, but I dont go into town enough to know much about that. Sorry.

>>14
No. It's the opposite of comfy. It's disorienting and kind of sick.
