Grand Theft Auto IV Mod Recreates World Trade Center

I recently learned about this World Trade Center mod for GTA IV via a post on and thought it might be of interest to this community. I haven't had much time to think about the mod, but I believe it offers an example of video games as tools for historical preservation, if nothing else. The video itself is ripe for rhetorical analysis, not to mention the possible connections to research on simulation, gaming, politics, user generated content, digital media, etc.

Any thoughts?
