What video games take place in your country or feature characters from your...
Max Payne 3. Very accurate in everything.
Did Spanish players think RE4 was in Mexico btw?
I actually thought it was in Transylvania or some shit when I was 14
Half-Life 2 has one (1) Swedish sign
But thy speak Spanish?
None but some polish ones. It's nothing particulary exceptional here, if you need some slavic shit, you pick Russians or Ukrainians as they are 'more".
Slav games are so comfy
Its in Eastern Europe tho.
2 whole chapters in Sly 2 took place in Canada.
Was actually pretty awesome.
it's been a while since i played stalker 1 and metro 2033 the last time, but as i remember it was pretty accurate, even there weren't real cities or places. that's only because games were made in ukraine
Yet they aren't about here. Mafia's about USA, Wicher about Neverland. Only STALKER is about here (I mean Ukraine).
Abba was universal, twat
Probably my favorite game of all times. I always wondered, what do you huebros think of it?
Also, OP, Mexico i only know of three games where Mexico appears:
Army of Two Devil's Cartel
Red Dead Redemption
Call of Juarez
But The Witcher is heavily based in Slavic mythology though.
And you can't deny that Redania is meant to be Poland. Same colours, symbol, etc..
At least you had Hostel movie, we haven't had shit.
I will make a game about Liechtenstein
this fucking game.
had at least one cutscene set in H*lsinki
Tax Evasion Simulator?
great. we can collect money on kickstarter
To be honest I didn't ever look at it this way. But true that's they smuggled some polackiness into it. As I said, none but polish games.
Crusader Kings II
Can't remember if there's any games set in Texas or characters which depicted Texans.
What do you think about german immigrants?
take a flat world
put in some grass
Voila, you have the Nethercunts. There are also some WW2 games about Operation Market Garden I guess.
This map, also some of Wolfenstein: TNO
Red Dead Redemption
Wild West=Texas, period, no?
nüx, gibts bei uns ned.
Wenn ein deutscher hier immigrieren will, dann muss er mindestens 10 Jahre hier wohnen oder mit einem Liechtensteiner verheiratet sein.
Part of the game takes place in mexico
The original Command & Conquer had a mission in Trieste, Slovenia.
Honestly real and unreal at the same time.
Like they made São Paulo look like Rio. I's completely different cities.
It was set in fictitious places, New Austin doesn't really count. Although the Wild West setting had similarities with the actual history, it was still more like a GTA setting.
Average day in the Netherlands.
Assassin's Creed Syndicate is the recent one which springs to mind. Other than sports and racing games, not many are actually set in the UK, but there are many British videogame characters about.
Rome total war.
Pretty accurate, we were imperators and parkour ninjas
not entire series but still
I remember there was a rainbow six game I played in Mexico. Also there is a few stages in fighting games where you fight in Mexico.
The only game I can think of that takes place in Alabama is one of those shitty hunting or fishing games.
S.T.A.L.K.E.R. is placed in Pripyat, which is in Ukraine. Or has Russia occupied that too?
The only one I can think of is cry of fear. Regarding portrayals a lot of games which include vikings
Yeah, that was nice. Produced by Tarantino
The last Deus Ex was set in Prague
I'm pretty sure that whenever people see Cowboy's hat and shitload of sand they think Texas. Or when they see Oil well and sand. If you know just 5 states at all, one of them is Texas for sure. I have no sources on that, but I'm pretty sure about it.
This is what Rotterdam actually looks like
This is your typical English tittymonster sword/whip wielding masochist.
Denke halt drüber nach so wie es sich hier gerade entwickelt.
Eure Immigrationsgesetze sind echt klasse.
In einem europäischen Staat zu leben und Bürger zu sein ist ein Privileg, Leute scheinen das nicht zu verstehen.
No doubt. I get what you're saying, we're pretty stereotypical, hence why I wasn't sure if if there were any games set in my home, but because of how famous Texas is around the World, I kinda expected there to be at least a few.
I'll have to look into it.
Thanks God she has a a pauldron otherwise she might get hurt.
Operation Market Garden
IIRC 47 was produced in an asylum in Romania. Also we had 1 (one) mission somewhere in the old rainbow six saga.
Wez represented n sheet
Shit happened in USSR (I mean nuclear disaster) + S.T.A.L.K.E.R. plod based on Strugatsky brothers novel.
This is your typical English special forces operative, standard issue uniform.
jojo, ausländer also refugees haben dort eben wieder sonderrechte. wenns nicht geht mit zurückschicken oder in ein anderes land geben, können die Bürger der einzelnen Gemeinden abstimmen, ob sie den heini aufnehmen wollen.
Letztes Jahr warens 5. Darunter ein Österreicher.
Mario Party 7
I'm not that much of a gamer but "No country for old man" and "There will be blood" ftw enough to be satisfied about 'we in popular art' category. Also that strange ball for a plant that rolls whenever ain't any cowboy on the screen has to be mentioned.
Milion ways to die on WW wasn't that bad either
Ebin, we should to kill you in 1938, silly finn
sup, royal with cheese?
Ohh... Well now if you wanna get into film, there's a shitload of them set in Texas. No Country for Old Men is downright, hands down, 100% accurate depiction of West Texas (which is much different from the other parts of Texas) in the late 70's/early 80's (it's set in 1980).
Hoffe mal das man sich das verdienen kann durch lernen von Liechtensteinisch und katholischer Gemeindearbeit.
Könnte aber auch als zu schleimig gesehen werden,oder?
Red Alert 3
are the portrayals accurate?
That movie hurt, but was so good.
COD moder warfare 3
New Deus ex Mankind
Indiana Jones emperor thomb
Metal Gear Solid 4
a fucking drunkard black Scotsman
Medal of Honor
This actually looks realistic.
This is an accurate portrayal of the relationship between England and France.
What about "Good, bad and ugly"? If it's about Texas (part at least), the state goes straight to the top of my fav state list. (Sorry Dallas, tho, Polack's heart can't help it, but to love Chicago the most out of the cities. Plus Blues Brothers, nuff said)
@Garbage Can Lid
It's set in New Mexico. You seem to have a fascination for the Wild West, which spans many states, not just Texas.
It's regarded as one of the greatest Westerns of all time, which I think is interesting, especially since it was shot in Italy as one of the many "Spaghetti Westerns" made during that era.
are the portrayals accurate?
certainly not that one
especially since it was shot in Italy as one of the many "Spaghetti Westerns" made during that era
but the spaghetti westerns were actually shot in Spain
mainly in Almeria
Not at all, it's just that many westerns are great movies as just movies ("The Magnificent Seven", "Blazing Saddles" and 100 others"
Jau, das ist eben dann wie bei einer Bewerbung. der Typ schreibt, warum er unbedingt möchte aufgenommen werden und was er doch so toll geleistet hat. Ahnelt so in etwa wie einer Bewerbungsmappe.
Vielleicht hab ich die vom dezember noch hier irgendwo rumliegen, lass mich mal suchen.
Aber sonst ist es in Liechtenstein auch Verfassungstechinsch geregelt, dass nur ein pestimmter Prozentsatz der Gesamtbevölkerung ausländer sein darf... wegen Kultur und so.
Aber man kann einen Kleinstaat, der vieleicht mal halb so gross ist wie eine kleiner Stadt nicht mit einer Macht wie Deutschland vergleichen.
Kann man schon, wen sich die ganzen Ausländer in Berlin oder zb London sammeln und man dann wie die Engländer Minderheit in der eigenen Hauptstadt.
I think the Netherlands is a popular setting overall because everyone recognizes it. You have Amsterdam with canals, canal houses and the red light district.
And on the other hand you have the windmills, tulips and grass fields and water.
