8 Great Video Game Levels Set in the Suburbs

Mike from Twinfinite writes, "Nothing says ‘middle class’ like the suburbs. In the past few years, my views of the suburbs has changed, however. Call me a sellout if you will, but as I’ve gotten older and started a family, the prospect of living out in a quiet neighborhood without having sirens blaring every night is a welcome one. While I’m all for urban environments as a place for adventure, it’s important to not overlook what’s possible in outlying areas. This is true of video games as well; not only are the suburbs all right in real life, but they’re actually pretty rad whenever they show up in video games too. Here are some levels from games which use ‘the burbs’ as an environment to great effect." (Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, Culture, Hitman: Blood Money, Max Payne, Psychonauts, Saints Row 4)
