I had a weird case of virtual deja vu today. I was vacationing in New Orleans, checking out the French Quarter, when I got the feeling I’d been there before. After a bit I figured out what it was…the architechture and street layouts were reminding me of the video game Infamous 2, which is set in a fictionalized version of New Orleans! I’d say the game’s developers succeeded at getting across the feel of the city.

Later, I saw a ladder extending from a house’s second floor balcony up to the roof. My first thought was, “If I could reach that ladder, I could climb up there and get a shard or whatever other treasure is up on that roof!” Yep, I’ve been trained by the games to look for ways to gain items and experience points in real life.
