Be it games that are coming out or games that have already come out. I may have made this thread a few years ago, but it could have been just something I wanted to make. I don't remember. The closest setting games get to where I live is Seattle, WA. There have been a handful of games that have done this location, but I think the game that tried to bring the location to life most was Infamous: Second Son. I didn't really care for the take on Seattle, nor did it feel like Seattle to me so I was pretty disappointed. The area in Seattle it nearly nailed was the entrance to the pacific science center. Something that totally surprised me was playing NBA Street 2 and there being Green Lake in it. The difference is that the location in the game looks like a mirrored image of the actual place.
I am super excited, and maybe the reason why I made this thread honestly, that The Last of Us Part II will take place largely in Seattle. The Last of Us' post-apocalyptic setting is one of my favorite video game settings ever I'd say as it has a story to tell itself as you can imagine the history of each place, so for them to take it near where I live is very exciting. Comparing the Google images of game footage to real-life locations is really cool. There are a bunch of other games that took place in Seattle, like Deus Ex, World in Conflict, Dead Light, Shadowrun, and even Advanced Warfare. Does any game take place near a location where you live or will there be any? How well do you think it represented the location or did that even matter?
Edit - I just noticed that the title sucks. Didn't need the s at the end of take.
