[Comments] (1) : I enjoyed this picture that uses airplane imagery as the background for a video game. There was a brief vogue for this kind of thing in the year after Google Maps launched, but the games weren't terribly good (they were Javascript games integrated directly into GM) and I'd like to see something more sophisticated. Thanks to GM it's pretty easy to grab scrolling tiles of much of the earth at decent resolution--I did it for Dada Maps.

This is a game for the PS3 that something similar - it uses Google Map images and overlays civilians you have to lead through monster-filled streets.

Here's a silly variant that's the same game, but instead of maps, it uses screencaps of websites. http://lastguy.jp/
