8 Video Game Places You Can Visit in Real Life

I think I speak for most of us, especially those in the gaming community, when I explain the jaw-dropping effect of gorgeous environments depicted through graphics in a video game. Even going as far as wishing that we could be transported to such a location. Well, what if I told you that you could set foot in the same place that was created in a video game? Sure, it might not be Hyrule from Zelda, or Mars from Doom, but here we found 8 places that will let you fan out! Just be sure to leave your sword and shield at home.



  1. The Crew - Las Vegas


Take you and your 3 best buds across the U.S in a reckless, one-of-a-kind racing game. Drive a Mitsubishi Lancer or a Subaru Impreza from LA to New York City. Go street racing or off-roading based on how you upgrade your ride.  Just make sure to stop in Las Vegas for us and check out the view.




  1. Saints Row 3 - Washington DC White House


This might sound crazy, but not only do you get to see Washington D.C and hang out in the White House, you also get to play as the President of the United States. It gets much stranger when aliens invade Earth and you have to save the human race!

Thankfully, you can visit Washington D.C. in real life and do very eventful activities like learning America’s cultural history or visiting national monuments — without having to go commando on aliens.




  1. Fallout 3 - Lincoln Memorial


Here’s another one for you history buffs. Except, in this game, there was a massive nuclear fallout. Fallout is one of the highest rated role-playing game series of all time.

If you want to find the real Lincoln Memorial yourself, all you have to do is travel to Washington D.C. Once you arrive, go to the National Mall and you will see good ole’ Abe sitting there on the western end.




  1. Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood - Rome, Italy


Consider this game a major time warp compared to how you will see it in person. You will play in the past but visit in the present! In the past, you will take on a role as an assassin out to stop the corruption of political figures. You will use incredible parkour skills and outrageous weapons. In the present, you can play as a daring adventurer that is ready to capture the light of the fallen coliseum, using your super great question skills and trendy polaroid camera. The choice is yours.




  1. The Last of Us - Salt Lake City, Utah


The Last of Us stands to be one of the best post-apocalyptic zombie game to date. When released, it was admired for its gorgeous graphics and scenery. You get to enjoy major eye candy as the main characters travel across North America to complete their objectives. One of the many places they passed through was Salt Lake City, Utah. As you can see below, it is eerily gorgeous. If you look closely, you can see the Temple Square. Thankfully, you don’t have to view the capital of Utah that way.

Instead, you can travel in a fuel-efficient car to Salt Lake City and visit the official headquarters of the Mormon Church. Hopefully your only fear will be the battery running out on your smartphone.





  1. L.A. Noire - 1940’s Los Angeles


L.A. Noire takes place in Los Angles in the 1940’s. The game adds a real “film noir” vibe to L.A. where you play as an officer of the LAPD to solve the crimes surrounding the city. The nostalgia mixed with the upscale life of L.A. will make you yearn to take a trip out to the city of angels as soon as possible! Some of the places you can see in the game and visit in real life include: the Roosevelt Hotel, Los Angeles Public Library and the Chinese Theatre — keep in mind, they may have tweaked the names in the game.




  1. Watch Dogs – Chicago


Develop your hacking abilities while you set your sights on Chicago in Watch Dogs. You can play a very skilled hacker that will use all his knowledge to stop the corrupt leaders from taking what is owed to the city. While you’re at it, you can gaze at the Willis Tower and really get a feel for the Chicago lifestyle as you drive through downtown in you Honda Ridgeline.

If you ever decide to see the Willis Tower for yourself, you need to experience the Skydeck. If you’re an adrenaline junky or would just like to experience the rush of being 1,353 feet from the ground with nothing but thick glass under your feet, then this is the place for you. You won’t find that in Watch Dogs.




  1. Forza Horizon 3 – Australia


Our final destination takes us down to Australia! Forza Horizon 3 is one of the most gorgeous racing games ever created. You will be able to traverse the Australian outback and even take on the Great Ocean Road.  Just promise us that you will drive a little safer in real life than you do in this game. We know how persuasive the steering wheel can get, especially in a sports car!
