The first PC game I ever played was called London Racer. It was really bad.
Not just because it was a racing game with crappy handling, boring tracks and horrible graphics, though.
But because it portrayed a "London" which was nothing like the one I recognised.
Years later, I played Modern Warfare 3. "Mind the Gap" was actually pretty good.
It's a shame it was immediately followed up by the most cliché-ridden British scene ever.
It got me thinking: is there any game that does Britain right?
GTA: London 1969 was good enough. Even if the dialogue was a parody of a parody.
And their idea of geography was… confused.
The Getaway had – for the time – an amazingly realistic map of London's streets
But christ it was boring, especially when you were out of the car.
Lara Croft is probably the most famous British video game character, but Croft Manor isn't much like my house.
And anyway, things only really get interesting for her when she leaves the country
Things get even worse if you start trying to look for other parts of Britain.
You start seriously wondering if Monkey Island counts
In the end, though, there is one game which captures Britain perfectly.
Sure, it's basically just a lot of spreadsheets
But despite that – or maybe because of it – Football Manager has got to be the most British game in the world.
