AI Images of US Landmarks | Solitaired New Data 2023

By Neal Taparia - 06/30/2023

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 American Landmarks:

  1. Grand Canyon, AZ
  2. Niagara Falls, NY
  3. Statue of Liberty, NY
  4. Empire State Building, NY
  5. Hoover Dam, NV
  6. Mount Rushmore, SD
  7. White House, Washington, DC
  8. Golden Gate Bridge, CA
  9. Cloud Gate (Chicago’s Bean), IL
  10. Monument Valley, UT

Top Video Games:

  1. Roblox
  2. Fortnite
  3. Minecraft
  4. Assassin's Creed
  5. Tetris
  6. The Last of Us
  7. Among Us
  8. Mario Kart
  9. Pokémon
  10. Halo

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.
