The Noisiest, Dirtiest Bars and Taverns in Video Games

Bars, clubs and noisy taverns are always crucial locations in a story-driven game. They are save points, places where we can sell useless stuff from our inventory, gather information, meet a key character, or just simply get into trouble.

We have selected bars and inns that look the grittiest. Bars that are perhaps most memorable as being dangerous and chaotic. So no Stray Sheep this time (well, it's chaotic in a way though), sorry Catherine. Those types of bars will be the subject of another post.
