World maps in video games are usually pretty great. We love world maps! You can use them to track the results of your progression through some grand adventure as new locations become accesible and your control over the world grows. A well-crafted world map in any game is always a sign of high quality.
Plus, many world maps are gorgeous.
We collected some of the most atmospheric and good-looking world maps. Careful, though, mild spoilers abound.
