New York City, USA

New York is phenomenal. I haven't been there in six years, but I remember everything and I loved it so much. I must go back soon. It's not but a few hours away from me anyway.

New York - It's been a dream. I wanna eat the food, climb the buildings (using stairs of course! :p), walk on the streets, breathe the air. It's kinda magical I guess.

Paris - I heard it's beautiful at night. :jmp:

From the Crystal Dynamics page;

California and the Bay Area

California is a cosmopolitan, multicultural state with activities for every one. It is also ground zero for game development.

The openness, creativity and intense cultural life and amazing weather make California a top choice for work and play. Our team members take advantage of the world class museums, restaurants and night life of San Francisco as well as outdoor activities that include everything from skiing to surfing to biking and backpacking through the state's famous redwood forests.

The weather is perfect 95 percent of the time and many people wear shorts year round.


Best of all, California's community of video game producers and developers is second to none for quality. The bay area is a cradle of innovation and creativity for many of the leading games produced today.

You live outside the United States? If we hire you, we will help you to obtain a work permit. We believe that no border should hinder the international mobility of talent!

Los Angeles. I have never been there, and I don't think its enough for me to just visit. I need to move there. That would be fantastic. I also want to see Miami. Actually I am going there next spring so it is soon to be explored! :D No date on LA yet though. :(
