Real-Life Locations in ‘Fallout: New Vegas’ Video Game

London copywriter Chris Worth, inspired by the futuristic role-playing game Fallout: New Vegas, set out to explore the Mojave Desert and discover just how close to reality the game really is. Three thousand dollars, a week's preparation and after five days of touring, he posted the results, as well as notes from his trip, on the falloutnewvegastour.com blog.

Even though it's set in an alternate version of the real world, the Fallout series still features many locations and buildings that exist today. In New Vegas, that means areas like the Las Vegas Strip and towns including Nipton and Goodsprings. Mr Worth travelled to 34 of those locations to take photos and place them side by side with screenshots from the game to see just where the line between fact and fantasy was drawn.
