Without further ado, here's the list of games with real geographical locations in their title. If you add something to the list, bear in mind that the geographical location must be:
- real (i.e. non-fictional)
- in the title of the game (nut just on the map etc.)
- must not be a whole country

Location: Central Spain (autonomous community of Castilla-La Mancha)
Population: 78,618 (2007)
Fun Facts: Populated since the Bronze Age, Toledo was an important commercial center of the Roman province of Tarraconensis, capital of Visigothic Spain, an intellectual hub of translation studies in Medieval Spain, and, briefly, capital of Castilla in the sixteenth century. Now it is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is visited by thousands of daytrippers from Madrid each and every day. In order to fully appreciate Toledo, do yourself a favor and spend the night wandering its steep, winding streets. You won't regret it.

Location: Essex County, Massachusetts, USA
Population: 40,407 (2000)
Fun Facts: Also known as my place of birth, Salem was settled in 1626 and is most well known as the setting of the Witch Trials of 1692. Although now home to a large number of horribly kitschy gift shops, the Witch Dungeon, and the Salem Wax Museum, I prefer to remind people that there is more to the city than first meets the eye. It is also home to the spectacular Peabody Essex Museum, the Salem Maritime National Historic Site, the House of the Seven Gables, incredible examples of Samuel McIntire's Federal-style architecture, and Gallows Hill Park (I kid you not), locus of some of my childhood baseball glory (as well as some other important historical events that you may have heard of).
