New York, New York: 25 Appearances Of The Big Apple in Video Games

Honorable Mentions

We're sure there are plenty more games that feature New York in all its glory, but there are a few others that we couldn't help mention that don't exactly fit with the list. That's because they're not technically set in NYC, though their virtual metropolises (metropoli?) are surely based off the Big Apple.

Grand Theft Auto IV's Liberty City was the most fully-realized version of the series' iconic and satirical take on New York. Infamous's Empire City did a decent job of imitating NYC as well, while Earthbound's Fourside (or the "Big Banana") did its best with the Super Nintendo's cute (but limited) capabilities.
