    Notable Game Appearances

    While uncommon as a full video game setting, The Philippines is occasionally referred to indirectly, such as in the case of Crysis, where in the game's fictional Lingshan islands were located off the east coast of the Philippines.
    The Philippines is a prominent location in games set in World War II depicting the conflict with the Japanese Empire, as the country was a commonwealth of the United States at the time of its invasion by Japanese forces. Several video games, such as Battlestations: Pacific, also feature the Battle of Leyte Gulf, the famous naval conflict that saw the sinking of the Yamato, then the world's largest battleship
    Several missions in Syndicate Wars are set in the Philippines, though the only reference to the country is a map indicator pointing its capital city, Manila. The missions themselves are classified as taking place in "Asia".
    The Philippines is depicted in the Front Mission series as a member of the Oceania Cooperative Union (OCU), and is suffering from a civil war with the Philippine Liberation Front (PLF) guerrilla movement.

    Filipino Characters

    Besides notable real-life Filipinos such as boxer Manny Pacquiao, there are few fictional Filipino characters in video games. Some include: 

    The Starship Troopers Connection

    Juan "Johnny" Rico, the Terran Mobile Infantry soldier and star of Starship Troopers, was a Filipino in the original novel, but had his nationality changed to Argentine for the film adaptation, which affected all subsequent video games and TV series.
