By the time you read this, I will be road tripping up the West Coast, or perhaps crushed under an ancient, vengeful redwood. My impending trip got me wondering, though: what are your favorite games to play while traveling or on vacation? Tell me your video game travel stories!
Road trips are rad. You cram into a car with your best pals and explore the great unknown. Or a series of traffic-ridden highways en route to a music festival. Still, it's the journey, not the destination, that counts. I'm glad games like Final Fantasy XV, Overland, and The Flame In The Flood are finally getting it.
GTA 5 is so much more than an epic crime game. It's also a pretty badass road trip quest. Next time you're driving down the Pacific Coast, hit up some of the real-life locations from Grand Theft Auto V's Los Santos. A word of caution: Skip the hookers and don't plow through pedestrians.
