(I'm aware that this is not GR:FS content but please think of an excuse not to move it, thanks)

I just read a thread by the Forum Manager linking the Fun Friday news posts. THEY ARE A BORE TO READ! And it seems most of you members are annoyed with them over the pointless content. How about I try and make a more interesting Fun Friday (I know itís Monday) with some GR relatable content?

My story:

A number of years ago I had a friend that I played the original Ghost Recon (OGR) with, from the UK, when it was still popular (think 2002ish). He had given me some stimulating photos of the Lithuanian City featured in my favourite level in OGR: Vilnius. These photos showcased how the game map was based on real location (Mexico City doesnít quite play the heart strings for me like a medieval Baltic city).

To anyone who has played OGR will recognize instantly these not-so world famous landmarks that made it into the game.

The original email containing his (actually likely not his) pictures was kept in my inbox for years. It seemed I lost them until google took me to this ghostrecon.net which had them posted in a similar manner to this post. I highly encourage some of you visit the site for more pictures and info!

Who really cares. The original recon type game play from GR1 will win anywhere you play it.
