Introducing the Video Game City Week

Hello! This week we’re trying something a bit special. It’s Video Game City Week!

Video games are filled with cities, and one of the great pleasures of a certain kind of game is getting to explore an urban environment that’s been designed especially to intrigue you and keep you busy. So we started to wonder: what are the best video game cities, including both real and imagined places? And what are the best individual pieces from those cities?

And what would a city look like if you pulled it together from your favourite elements of other video game cities? Which game would you turn to for the perfect rooftops, the perfect coffee shops, the perfect use of statues and freeways? (In a beautiful piece of synchronicity, Skyfaring author – and airline pilot – Mark Vanhoenacker’s luminous Imagine a City was released last week – do track it down.)
