Games about travel - an IFDB Poll

RSS Feed

This list is for games either about travel or with travel as a major part of the plot or background. Stuff like being able to choose where you go from a relatively wide range of destinations, road trips, exploring a city or region as a tourist, or/and a setting in an airport, bus station, train station, or/and other major transit points are all good areas for games to include here.
