Here in the red-pill real world, the scenery’s a bit hit and miss. For every beautiful beach resort, there are a hundred ho-hum forgettable towns. Multiplayer maps in blue-pill PC gaming land suffer from the same problem. It shouldn’t come as a surprise; with hundreds of games sporting thousands of maps, most of them are bound to be filler. A few diamonds manage to rise above the mountain of coal, however, and they offer an amazing experience that simply begs to be played over and over again, preferably while wearing bright blue megaarmor and wielding a rocket launcher.
Dreamers like Cliff Bleszinski, Richard “Levelord” Gray and Paul Jaquays create virtual worlds that are chock full of unforgettable landmarks and perfectly designed fragalicious goodness. Join us for a stroll down memory lane as we take a look at 15 of the most memorable video game maps of all time, and feel free to leave a comment to let us know which totally awesome levels we idiotically left out.
