There were a few text logs in Assassin's Creed Unity that mentioned specific intersections and landmarks in Montreal that I was very familiar with. It's cool when written fiction is set in real locations that have been part of your day-to-day life.
As for my hometown and current home Toronto: it got nuked at the beginning of Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon, I guess? That might be the closest Toronto's come to playing a significant role in a AAA game. I'd probably buy just about any AAA open-world game set in Toronto that wasn't complete trash.
