What up everyone… got a great post for you today. So most folks visit Paris for the culture, food, history, architecture, or whatever dream they’re following about being in this city. Granted, it’s one of R and my favorite cities in Europe – but we made a pilgrimage the other week for a completely different reason altogether:
Anyone remember the Modern Warfare 3 multi-player map, “Resistance”?? R and I found it, IN PARIS – it exists!
OK so if you’re not a hardcore Modern Warfare/Call of Duty gamer you’ll have no idea what the hell I’m talking about haha… but back a few years ago, R and I stayed up many late nights playing MW3 online with our friends. We’d have such a fun, hilarious time with our friends from Washington, Dan & Marta, playing online together – terrorizing all the 10-year olds online! haha oh what fun… making loads of buffalo wings, pizza, beer, spending great times with our buds.
Anyhow, one of the best multi-player maps in MW3 is this Paris-themed area called “Resistance”. I don’t think most (or hardly any) of the people who used to play this game would think anything about this map, or whether it might exist in real life – BUT IT DOES!!
Here’s a quick screenshot of the map:
I’m telling you, it’s the most random neighborhood corner in Paris, located in the popular Montemarte district. It’s about five blocks away from anything remotely touristy – so why the game developers chose to use it for their game, or how they (freakishly) coincidentally built a virtual map that looks exactly like this small square just blows my mind. It was very cool to find it, in person 🙂 Here’s some of our photos of “Resistance”:
