Russia is a very, very big country, spanning several timezones, climates, and ethnicities. When it was part of the Soviet Union it was even larger. It is no wonder then that many developers think it’s a perfect setting for a video game!

There are so many video games set in Russia that we would be hard-pressed to list them all for you. So we won’t do that. Instead, we’ll present just a dozen or so of them, picking the best ones, and these you could still get in digital distribution. There’s no point in being aware of a game you can’t play, after all. Take a look.
