Liberty City

Liberty City
Featured in Chapters 1 through 6 of the Heroes? campaign, Liberty City is an analogue to New York City and is inspired by the city detailed in Grand Theft Auto III}. Like in most {RPGs, the police are a little less effective, organized crime is a little more prevalent, and the corporations are trying to take it all over.

The choice to use a fictional city (instead of simply calling it New York) was twofold: "Liberty City" /sounds/ like a city from a "normal" comic book, yet comes from one of the most wantonly violent video games ever. The irony was too good to pass up. Second, using a fictional city required less research on the part of the GM and so promoted play without obsessing over details (or being called out on details).
