Video Game Cities We Wish Existed In Real Life
Video games know a thing or two about creating fascinating and wonderful cityscapes that inspire our curiosity and imagination, and there are many of them that I would definitely choose to have residence in over the capital of Gondor.
This submerged city-state on the bottom of the ocean was supposed to be a land of opportunity. A place unhindered by societal pressures, Rapture quickly became a city of discovery and revolution. Quickly after that, it become a ghost town rife with death and addiction. Oops.
New Marias, Infamous 2
Based heavily on New Orleans, New Marias is the Gulf of Mexico city that Cole ends up in after the events of the first Infamous. New Marias is like the French Quarter of NOLA, but across an entire city – which is both exciting and overwhelming for anyone who’s been to Frenchmen Street on a weekend.
Val Royeaux, Dragon Age: Inquisition
Val Royeaux is an impressive city, architecturally speaking. Its buildings and streets are intricately molded, gilded with gold, and draped with grand tapestries. It’s the religious seat of Theadas – the Vatican of the game, if you will – and is also the epicenter of much of the intellectual progress that happens in the country. Too bad most of its residents are jerks.
Columbia, Bioshock Infinite
We will have to get past the dubious nature in which the miraculous city of Columbia was made in order to enjoy its incredible potential. Like Rapture, it’s a city in a place a city shouldn’t be. A floating city in the sky, above the clouds and away from the world’s issues, is a dream that could have never lasted long, but we can dream.
The Citadel, Mass Effect
This space metropolis is a meeting hub for all of the galaxy’s colorful inhabitants. It’s a technological marvel and filled to the brim with culture and spectacle. It’s also proof of the very mysterious nature of the galaxy, as no one knows when or how The Citadel was built. They just sorta started living there.
