tfw I fapped to this map once
I have no idea why.

Anyway, it's pretty cool how they managed to include all of the Burroughs+ New Jersey. I wish more games set in NYC went to as much effort.

Westeros is supposed to be the size of South America.

But GRRM Martin got the shapes and geography all wrong so it seems more like it's a bit larger than Great Britain maybe

Honestly looks like a beginners version of an RPG worldmap. It is just so stupid with no cohesion. It's also impossible to tell scale since there's obvious undocumented territory all around.

That's when Finland was under Swedish rule and the Swedish faggot cartographers came to consult the locals regarding place names on maps they were making. The Finnish peasants annoyed about the foreign cunts pestering them so they gave them all sorts of rude joke names.

played with friends on gta iv online so much that we all memorized how to get to the airport
played games with the blips turned off so we could stealth against everyone
planned an assassination of a friend we'd always fuck with with blips off with the sniper in TBOGT
gta V comes out and we have great fun
stops being fun around the time all the stupid ass grinding comes out
eventually drop it
see all these new updates and never install because i'll never find someone with a moneygun

I wish map designers would learn geography and meteorology. Then they could make worlds that look somewhat realistic.

For example, there is a phenomenon known as rain shadow where a mountain range will block rain from passing through them. That causes a build up of moisture and greenery on one side of the mountain and a desert on the other side. Pic related is an example. The map designer for this map could've easily have constructed such a thing on one of the many mountain ranges but failed to do so. There's just no logic to the map other than north = cold.

Asher Long

Who the fuck cares, nerd boy? This kind of realism does not make games better.

Connor Smith

Why even have a world map for your game world if you're not going to appeal to geography enthusiasts? It's not like the world map has any relation to the mechanics of the game.

Jeremiah Jenkins

It's the opposite you retard

Nathan Brooks

Because having horse people across the sea and barbarians up north is what he wanted for the plot. The precise topography doesn't matter and self proclaimed """geography enthusiasts""" would find something to whine about anyway.

And wouldn't knowing how things work create a level of depth to the world that would help immersion?

There was a guy in a thread earlier talking about his scat fetish which was pretty in depth.
Something about being into women who are scared whilst shitting and running away, mid shit with shit coming out of them.
It was a good thread.

Asher Wright
Asher Wright

Then why bother adding any sort of realism? Why try to emulate medieval society and peasant life in your story if you can just throw together elements? Why bother learning about armor and weaponry and battle tactics and strategy if you can just make shit up? Why study linguistics to give your made up elven language a semblance of realistic structure?

Some fantasy authors go to great lengths to emulate realistic aspects to give their world depth but when it comes to the map they just start drawing whatever they want with no logic.

I read an interview with Horii where he said that originally, Cannock was located where the Lake Cave is, but players found it too difficult to travel that far early in the game.

So they moved Cannock closer and put a dungeon from a different part of the game in the lake.

Also, apparently basically the entire game's enemy stats, encounter rates and locations, and general balance were completely overhauled in the very last month of development, because playtesting revealed the game was way too hard. Which explains the infamous balance problem the game has.

I still cannot get over how bad this map is. The day I saw it leaked the day before the game got released, I was like, theres no way this is real

Low and behold Rockstar didn't give a fuck
