10 best video games in London – SEENIT
London is a bustling city full of life, history and culture. With so many different things to see and do in this huge metropolis, you can’t help but feel like you’ve been transported to another world. London has been the backdrop for some of the best video games ever.
We’ve seen some of London’s newest and oldest trends in the gaming industry, most notably the casinos sub-sector, with the latest slot machine news often from this spectacular city. In no particular order, here are 10 of the best games set in London.
This series has covered several games, but this is the original from the PlayStation 2 developed by the Soho team and published by Sony Computer Entertainment which took place in London on a fictional version of the famous East End.
The Getaway told the story of two London bank robbers in today’s London, voiced by their gangland boss, Jack Palmer (played by Ray Winstone). The game had links to classic British crime films such as Lock Stock & Two Smoking Barrels and Snatch, as they share a character, Harry Lock.
The Getaway was graphically quite impressive at the time of release, but more importantly, it featured excellent gameplay mechanics thanks to its open-world structure. The game spawned a sequel in 2004 called Too Human, which took place on an island off the coast of London rather than within the city limits. However, the series never lived up to its potential, with a third installment canceled and Team Soho closed in 2007.
Hitman: Blood Money
This latest generation title from IO Interactive was one of our favorites back in the days it was played on Xbox 360 because there was no such thing back then. It was a third-person stealth game set in open sandbox environments and allowing you to play the way you wanted, meaning that one player probably spent over 30 hours playing multiple times on each level just to get all the collectibles hidden around each card.
Hitman Blood Money takes place in London. It featured multiple levels with different objectives, which meant you could be on a mission trying to trick someone into killing their target, then immediately turning your attention to another level where the objective is simply to “kill everybody”.
Assassin’s Creed Syndicate
Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate is the ninth major title in Ubisoft’s hit franchise, and it has you play Jacob Frye, one of the twin assassins living for London’s industrial revolution. This sequel takes place seven years after Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag (also located in another city) and features a new hero and new mechanics. The game was set in 1868, so you’ll see the city as it transitioned from Victorian England to modernity.
The Syndicate story takes place after Jack the Ripper murdered several prostitutes around London, forcing Jacob and his sister Evie (the other playable twin) to step up and protect London from this mysterious killer. Conflict between rival gangs, a corrupt police force, and undead enemies will have you guessing at every turn as your journey takes you through 1868 London in search of answers to the identity of Jack the Ripper.
Watch dogs: Legion
One of our favorite games set in London, Ubisoft is back with Watch Dogs Legion, the next title in their open world hacking franchise. While this game isn’t set entirely in London, there is still an interesting glimpse into what could happen if we dump all of our personal information online and allow businesses to control everything that happens around us. The main character, a member of the DedSec hacker group, lives in London as all hell breaks loose around them. You can play Watch Dogs Legion on PS4, Xbox One, and PC.

Resistance: Fall of Man was released in 2006. The game was developed by Insomniac Games and released exclusively for the PlayStation 3 console.

The game is a first person shooter and has been praised for its exciting and fast paced gameplay. It has an innovative weapon modification system that allows you to customize your weapons from over 40 different upgrades. The story was well received as it can be considered one of the best storylines in any video game set in central London.
Tomb raider 3
Tomb Raider 3 was the first game in the series to take place outside of Egypt. It takes place primarily on a freighter floating on the Thames, which winds through London before heading for international waters. You’ll find yourself jumping on rooftops and battling mad pirates for ancient relics and priceless artifacts. The game also includes great hidden secrets for you to discover.
There is no game on this list more quintessentially Londoner than GTA: London 1969. The first entry in the Grand Theft Auto series, set entirely in the British capital, was released in 1999 for PC and PlayStation 1 (and later scope on iOS). There was stiff competition with games like Driver and the original Gran Turismo.
Players were able to do whatever they wanted in London, like robbing banks or choosing which character you would like to beat other characters (and then do). It was pretty much GTA 1, but entirely located in one city instead of multiple cities across America. The game also had a weak storyline, but no one is playing a GTA game for the plot.
Project Gotham Racing 3
The third installment in the Project Gotham Racing series, this title puts players behind the wheel of very exotic cars, including, but not limited to, Ferraris and Lamborghinis. Your objective is to run from one side of London through the city through a tunnel under the River Thames, ending up at the top of the London Eye. You can run in different modes, including free roaming mode, where you are allowed to explore all four areas without any time limit or goal, allowing unlimited fun.
Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception
Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception is an action-adventure video game developed by Naughty Dog and published by Sony Computer Entertainment for PlayStation 3.

The Order 1886

The characters you play as throughout this action-packed adventure include Galahad, the head of the Order, whose mission is to hunt down and kill half-breeds. As you progress through the story mode, more details are revealed about this alternate story timeline, as well as some exciting subplots involving both Galahad himself and his fellow Knights.
However, the main thing that sets this game apart from the rest is the graphics. The 1886 Order has some of the best visuals you’ll see in a video game to date. Everything seems realistic, even Hyde Park, but still manages to look stylized in a way that makes it really interesting to watch.
The character models are impressive, making humans, in particular, very lifelike and almost real despite the fantastical nature of their immortality. It’s also worth mentioning that this game has some of the best sound designs ever heard in any video game with realistic sound effects, great music, and even great voices from the main characters.
