The significance of a game's setting

In a storyline-driven genre like role playing, a good setting can end up being a game's most important element. (Dev, Fallout 3, Infinite Space, Nintendo DS, PC, PS3, Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey, The World Ends With You, Xbox 360)

yeah, having a game about pneumonia but taking place in South America would really get me immersed. :/

This piece mostly deals with RPGs, but has there been any recent setting as good as Rapture?

I honestly can't think of many that were *that* well realized/interesting.

Yep. Half the reason I game is to go to interesting places and do interesting things. Which usually means "kill a lotta things," but still.

I find space relaxing, except in Mars Matrix.
