    QOTW: My favorite game set in Europe is Alice: The Madness Returns. Yes It takes place in Wonderland but major story points i the game take place in London.

    The best game ever made in Europe is Geometry Wars 2. It was made by Bizarre Creations based in Liverpool. The world didn't appreciate the game's genius so Activision closed the studio down. Sad times. Happy twist at the end, Activision re open Sierra and announce Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions. Rxb is happy and all is right with the world.

    I loved Resistance Fall of Man: walking around a derelict Manchester Cathedral and other UK landmarks was awesome, even if it did upset the church :)

    I really can't believe I heard "Dragon Age one was sub par" yes 2 sucked but the first one was sooooo good. I would really suggest playing it. One of my favorite RPG's ever.

    Favorite game developed in EU? Burnout Paradise! Although the series changed a bit from the original series, opening the game to a larger open world and having so many missions and "collectibles" all over, this game led to so many hours played just trying to complete the game. Not only that, but with a good amount of DLC and a great online mode, many more hours were poured in even after I thought it was over

    QOTW: By far favorite game developed in Europe has been Sniper Elite III for, you guessed it, the kill cam. Alternatively, my favorite game taking place in Europe would be Forza 5, especially for the beautiful Budapest track that you are dropped into at the beginning of the game. I'm reposting this only because I'm not sure if the first one took.

    It would have to be the Hitman series from those great Danes at IO Interactive. Specifically Hitman: Contracts. A 'greatest hits' game if you would. It's a whirlwind tour though the most sleazy and grimy parts of Europe. Kill murderous aristocrats in rural England! Kill bikers in Rotterdam! Kill fat a Scottish man in Romania! What other game takes you to Budapest? Or Siberia? The globetrotting really added to the ambiance of the early Hitman games, something they lost with Blood Money and Absolution (more like absolut-elyterrible!)

    QOTW: /googles European game studios. Criterions from England? They made Burnout 3? Them. I like them. A lot.
  • callyfornication - August 16, 2014 1:20 p.m.

    I think mine would have to be The Getaway, developed by Team Soho (predictably based in Soho, London) because it felt like playing a Guy Ritchie film. The whole thing was delayed a massive 27 months or something so they could faithfully recreate the streets of London. It's as close to GTA: London as you can get without playing the London, 1969 missions for the original GTA. The sequel, Black Monday, was also pretty great!
  • winner2 - August 16, 2014 11:36 a.m.

    QOTW: Easy, my favorite game set in Europe would have to be Assassin's Creed 2. Parkouring around Florence, climbing 10 story tall churches, and assassinating guards on the roofs of venice during carnivale made for one of the most memorable games I've ever played. And it was also the introduction to one of the most memorable characters I'll ever play. It was just really cool to see jokes like Ezio pioneering milk with coffee, or him and Leonardo chatting as friends.
  • EAC73 - August 16, 2014 9:51 a.m.

    My favorite game developed in Europe would have to be Fable, by Lionhead Studios. The first game will always be my favorite in the series. Fable also takes place in what would seem somewhere in Europe with the accents many characters have.

    Pripiyat located in Easern Ukraine from COD MW....dish out your Activision and COD trolling all you want; at the time, that level on "All Ghillied Up" provided more fun than a armless drunk on a bee farm for a sadist. The multiplayer combat....sheeshhh...trading sniper shots from across the courtyard while checking over your shoulder for invaders from each corner of the room....fun fun fun.

    Despite how tempting Bloodborne, I don't see getting a PS4 for that Lorenzo. Also Lorenzo don't let those girly girls take the wednsday stream from you!! We already lost Greg, don't you dare leave us sir!!!! Okay for QOTW I pick Resident Evil 4 because you play as the Eternally sexy U.S. government special agent Leon S. Kennedy, who is sent on a mission to rescue Ashley Graham, the U.S. President's daughter who has been kidnapped by a sinister cult. Traveling to a remote rural area of Europe, Leon fights hordes of violent villagers and mutated monsters, and reunites with the mysterious spy Ada Wong. I mean come on what ever RE game is in Europe...NONE!!!! :P

    I mentioned in the symbolic levels article that I played the hd one recently, not sure why I forgot it applied here too. So good, and for me it was my first legitimate run as when I first played I had the clear data of a friend so until now I had never beaten the game without using the Chicago typewriter or infinite rocket launcher.
  • GenderBender_9000 - August 15, 2014 10:55 p.m.

    QOTW: Did Armed and Dangerous take place in Europe? The game has a British talking robot in it. So I guess it's European-ish. The game also has shark-guns in it. Those were bad ass. So thats my answer; Armed and Dangerous because shark-guns.
  • GenderBender_9000 - August 15, 2014 11:11 p.m.

    I love the addition of Ashly and Jann to the site. They bring a new sassy attitude to GamesRadar and the podcast.
