Abandonware DOS title

The best urban setting games

There are a lot of games that take place in urban environments. Cities from any epoch (both ancient and modern) were often used as the setting, or even for the purpose, for any kind of game: simulation, strategy, action, etc. Think about a medieval town, an ancient city, a modern metropolis, a futuristic megalopolis; you can bet that someone used one of these as the setting of a successful game.
