Cultural Geography - GTA style...

There are some games which create a global buzz.
Grand Theft Auto is one of those games.
I was interested to read of the reaction in the Scottish town of Hawick to their place being used as the name for a 'druggie' district of one of the main cities.


An interesting story on globalisation and cultural exports here too from the BBC with plenty of other areas for discussion....

How else are places represented in the game ?
How important is geography in the game play ?
