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

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..

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.

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.

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.

@Emberfire
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.

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).

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.

certainly not that one

but the spaghetti westerns were actually shot in Spain
mainly in Almeria

@Nojokur
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.

@Emberfire
True. Some shots of that film were in Spain as well as Germany.

Ok I see what you mean now. Blazing Saddles is easily one of the funniest movies of all time.

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.
