Video games are captivating for many reasons, but one of their most lasting impacts is the world-building they do to create instantly recognizable characters and imagery.
To showcase the power of AI, Solitaired used AI to redesign some of the most popular American landmarks as if they were part of iconic video game worlds.

Top Video Games:
We thought about which landmarks would make the most sense for each video game and paired them accordingly. For example, Assassin’s Creed is a game known for scaling an urban environment, so we felt it best to pair it with the Empire State Building. Even though we're biased, we also decided to exclude popular classic card games like Spider Solitaire and FreeCell.
Which video game landmark would you like to explore?
To determine the most famous landmarks and video games by search volume, we analyzed nationwide searches for terms and phrases related to video game brands and American landmarks from May 2022 through April 2023.
We used Midjourney AI to generate images of American landmarks as video games.
