Video game version of Vegas: Our most accurate depiction yet?
by Andrew Kiraly | posted May 13, 2011
Here's a meta-enriched item to make your postmodern brain-lobes twirl: Avid fan of Southwest travel scours Las Vegas to compare the reality with its grim, futuristic depiction in the acclaimed, incredibly vivi, detailed, post-apocalyptic Sin City-set video game Fallout: New Vegas.

The site's now complete. In less than a week it's approached 100,000 pageviews and over 5000 people have watched the videos. But doing a tour based on a videogame remains a fundamentally silly thing to do. So a few people have asked: why did I do it?
