- A Reddit user, known as RileyRichard, has scaled the map of GTA V to compare with real world cities like Berlin, Barcelona, Cape Town, and others.
- The comparison brings into perspective the vastness of video game worlds in contrast to real world cities.
- This idea sparks the question of what it would be like if the GTA game was set in an actual city the size of those compared.
In addition to Berlin, he compared the scaled GTA V map to Barcelona (Spain), Cape Town (South Africa), Los Angeles (United States), London (United Kingdom), Montreal (Canada), New York City (United States), Paris (France), Rome (Italy), Seattle (United States), San Francisco (United States), Toronto (Canada), and Vancouver (Canada), and published the resulting images.

This really puts the game world into perspective, doesn't it? Video game worlds can seem so vast, but they're tiny compared to the real world. Can you imagine what it would be like if a GTA game was set in a city the size of those pictured above?
