Irish Locations Buildings, Structures, featured in Gaming - Action & Simulation

    The first type of game is of course Flight SimulationI saw the cranes Samson and Goliath in Belfast featured in Flight Simulator 2000, as part of an add on. Scandalously, these fine structures have not be coded for X Plane 12.

    Then there is the Spire in Dublin City Centre. That features in Microsoft Flight Simulator.

    There are distinct buildings and features coded in an Irish Add on for Train Simulator Classic. I don't know what they are since I have'nt installed them - yet.

    What other action and simulation games do you know of with Irish infrastructure in them?

    A phonebox in Folklore on PS3. I really enjoyed the game at the time, though it's very much a fictional fantasy depiction of an Irish village.

    There was that random Irish level in Tomb raider chronicles. It was fairly woeful but exciting as well to a teenage recyclops.

    50 shades of bland

    Also the absolute classics of GAA games

    I've never even heard of this game but after looking it up I'd love to play it. Is there any way to play this on a PS5? I do still have my PS3 but would be easier to use the PS5.

    Unfortunately, like many PS3 games, you would need original hardware or emulation. The only hope for PS5 currently would be Sony making it available for their PSN streaming service, but given it was a bit of a commercial flop it's probably low down the list. Given Sony's terribly inconsistent approach to backwards compatibility, it joins a whole host of other PS3 games that are just stuck on original hardware.

    Apparently it's possible to emulate it though it's not something I've ever tried.

    It's €50 to buy on CEX and similar on eBay. Must be a rare game these days.

    It's not that great. I heard a lot of good things about it despite the average reviews and gave it a go a few months ago and it's a very average hack and slash game with an interesting setting, pretty typical of a games republic game.
