The Five Most Memorable Locations In Video Games

We take a look back over the great archive of video games that's on offer to choose our all-time top five most memorable locations. (PC, PS2, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

Pretty good list. But for me areas of shadow of the colossus held very memorable locations. Final fantasy 7's midgard, or gold saucer are memorable for me. Also, the deku tree in ocarina of time, or the castle in Mario 64! So many more I could list. Each to their own I guess though.

I feel like this author is 10 years old. I'm sorry but with all of the repeated textures and areas in Skyrim, it hardly makes ANY of it memorable.

The lack of Shadow Moses Island from MGS1 is completely laughable, or the revist to it in MGS4. I'd also agree very much with the castle in Mario 64.

A lot of the old levels in older Mortal Kombat games are also really etched in my childhood, but that's more of a personal thing.

Good idea for a list, poor execution.

He may not be 10 years old but his gaming experience sure feels like it started after 2004. Hell, even if he was a relative newbie to the scene, there are far more interesting locations to list from 7th generation games as number 1 than Skyrim.

It would be a poor list for somebody either way Biggy, I don't intend to annoy readers. This process is harder than you think, but it's mostly my experience with video games, not yours.

A cargo plane...really? Of all the thousands of games there have been...a cargo plane. Where's Hyrule's Water temple? Where's Half Life's Black Mesa? Or Half Life 2's City 17? Where's the fucking ring world from Halo? But no...a Cargo plane.

Gamer1138; I think the author got confused by their own article since it's more what happens on the cargo plane that makes it memorable, rather than the cargo plane itself.
Personally, I think they should've saved that one for a different list.

Damn, city 17 was awesome!

Zanarkand.

5. Anor Londo - Dark souls
4. Donkey Kong Island - Donkey kong series
3. Shadow Moses Island - Metal Gear Solid series
2. Phendrana Drifts - Metroid Prime
1. Zeldas Castle - Zelda series

Something along those lines. Mostly, beautifull places.

This was obviously made by someone that has been loyal to playstation all there life.

how do you figure that out, considering Tomb Raider 2 is available on PC, PlayStation, Mac OS

Skyrim is available on PC, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360

Bioshock is available on PC, OS X, Cloud (OnLive), Xbox 360, PlayStation 3

Its hardly a exclusive PS list.
