    What the actual fuck? No Assassin's Creed locations??? Like Rome or Constantinopole or Florence or Venice?

    My favourite one has got to be the Un'Goro crater in Warcraft. The Ngorongoro crater is actually an incredible place in Tanzania. 300 sq kilometres by 600 meters deep filled with the big 5.

    I live in Zelda. Very small place along highway 23 in Kentucky.

    For everyone talking about Centralia, the Silent Hill games are in fact NOT based on Centralia. Only the movies version of Silent Hill is based on Centralia changing the fog to ash etc... because it fits the film.

    Seriously? You spent all the time on this article and didn't even realize that silent hill was based on a real town ? Yes, it was Centralia, Pa. In the authors defense, you can no longer find it on any maps. Around 1962 the coal veins running under the town caught fire because they used to burn their trash in an abandoned strip mine. This was done by putting a layer of clay (or some other barrier) over the strip mine so it wouldn't catch when burning the trash. unfortunately they didn't quite do it right, and a slow fire began. This resulted in sink holes, and the iconic steam rising from the ground seen in silent hill games. Centralia was a huge town, and the main highway ran through. The coal fires spread under a large portion of highway causing cracks and rifts you can jump across. The highway was re-routed around the town and the only way you can find this old portion is if you know where it is. Do you research. We want a new article. Trust me, Centralias it.

    Silent Hill is based off of Centralia, Pennsylvania. A coal fire started there 50 years ago, and due to the amount of coal and other minerals under the ground in that region of the state, the fires still going. The town is completely abandoned due to the dangerous chemicals in the air and the unstable ground and foundation that the town sits on.

    Silent Hill is actually based off of a town in PA called Centralia I believe.
  • jeremy-lanphere - August 1, 2013 10:15 a.m.

    yeah you are correct on this the story came together because of the unstoppable coal fire that is still going on beneath what used to be the town and that the the only 2 real landmarks left is the church on the top of the mountain which people stil go to, and the cemetary. i went there last year it was crazy to see how quickly nature can reclaim a town and most of its roads
  • SummonerL - August 1, 2013 10:25 a.m.

    Woah you got a chance to go there? That's awesome. Are there any residents?
  • freeden - August 1, 2013 10:37 a.m.

    In the film, yes, but in the games, no. The game version of Silent Hill, much like Raccoon City, is designed after images of the east coast. But Centralia is probably the closest thing to Silent Hill the US has.

    I'm actually from Vansant VA. But I've yet to see a freakish creature. Well other than some of the rednecks. -_-

    Deadly Premonition great game, actually feels like the people have real lives due to it running at certain times. People give it a try
  • CitizenWolfie - August 1, 2013 5:19 a.m.

    Isn't the Silent Hill from the film located in Virginia? If so, I think that totally counts.
  • kursedkey - July 31, 2013 10:12 p.m.

    I think Shadow Moses Island would work in this article.

    There's also a station square in Pittsburgh. It's not a city, but rather a grouping of bars, clubs, restaurants, and light shopping along the riverfront.
  • VooDooDevil1369 - July 31, 2013 11:39 a.m.

    Okay so this is the reference I wanted. Silent Hill is off of Toluca Lake. Toluca Lake is a suburb of Los Angles.
  • atocnada - July 31, 2013 11:59 a.m.

    Los Angles? Tri-City area composed of Right Angle, Acute Angle and Obtuse Angle?
  • VooDooDevil1369 - August 1, 2013 9:46 a.m.

    Of course, you now know its secrets
  • freeden - August 1, 2013 10:38 a.m.

    I always found that amusing when I lived in Burbank. It always made me think of Silent Hill.
  • JarkayColt - July 31, 2013 11:37 a.m.

    Apparently there's a place called Altea in Spain if you ever want to go and pay Prince Marth a visit.
