Hollywood Atlas
aka: Hollywood Geography
"The game opens in London, with Drake walking off cobbled streets into an English pub with a motherfucking red phone box out the front, where every single member of the clientele looks like Grant Mitchell from Eastenders. Now, I've always assumed that the foreign locales in previous games were at least researched to some degree, but now I'm forced to call that into question, because the equivalent of this would be walking into Central Park and seeing a load of Prohibition-era gangsters feeding the ducks by shooting bread out of tommy guns."
Zero Punctuation on Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception

A geographical location is exaggerated into its most basic form or, more typically, only a collection of stereotypes and cliches. When a few aspects of geographical locations are the only things widely known about the locations, any story about them is likely to only mention those few aspects.
