    Counter-Strike source has a lot of graffiti in it. Stuff that looks even more like graffiti than what you posted. Hell, the first Counterstrike has an erupto hollow on a train, this game was made in 1998. Driver (Playstation) had graffiti in it. I think it was just by one writer though. That retarded ass rollerblading game for the DreamCast. And of course the coming up "Getting Up" by marc ecko.

    I think a graffiti game would be much better executed if it was more of a sneaky stalker type game. Like Manhunt for instance. In Manhunt you have to walk around being as silent as possible to kill a bunch of people. I think it would be very easy to execute that gameplay in a graffiti game, especially seeing as how it would be much more realistic.. I mean sure, we've all done backflips off of subway trains after doing a simple.. but a backpack that holds your spray cans on the outside? PSSSH.

    *edit, I forgot about GTA:SA and the graffiti missions as well. It was bound to happen. I guess I was the only one who saw it coming and just learned to accept it before it actually came. You can't tell me you didn't see this happening.

    I've always wondered what you got, if anything, for your contribution to Driver.

    Anyway, graffiti in videogames is essential. After all, these makers are often going for realism, if not simply for a certain atmosphere. Max Payne, for instance, really used graffiti to convey the dark image of the underworld in which the story was set.

    As a matter of fact, when a game is set in an urban setting, it is one of the first things I look for. Some games simply put some nonsense scribbling on the walls, but I give respect to the developer if the graffiti is real, so to speak.

    Last year sometime when they were doing the settings in tony hawk underground, one of the guys who was involved in making the sneak attack series got an email asking if he knew anyone who would like to submit photos of they're graffiti to be featured in the game...

    That guy posted the email and the ladies email address somewhere in thirdrail/the yard.
