Chris Worth’s Fallout: New Vegas Tour

Real New Vegas: the saloon in Goodsprings

Have you ever gone to a place you’ve never been to before, only to have a strange feeling of recognition that you later realise is because it looks like something you’ve seen in a video game? Have you ever wondered whether the Santa Monica of Vampire the Masquerade: Bloodlines resembles its real life equivalent? After playing a flight simulator, do you think you could navigate the real place without a map?

British blogger Chris Worth visited Nevada, armed with a copy of Fallout: New Vegas, to see just how closely the real-life place corresponds with its post-apocalyptic equivalent. While the real location is (mostly) in better condition than its fictional counterpart, he was struck by how easy it was to recognise the game’s locations – and was able to spot the inspirations for the made-up places in the game.

This is a view of the Hoover Dam as it appears in real life:
