Maybe you've seen some screenshots of Grand Theft Auto V. The game isn't an exact recreation of LA, but it does take inspiration from it.
Some places are comparable enough that, if you searched, you could find something uncannily similar in Los Angeles — as PlayStationAccess's correspondent did here.
That must be cool — to recognise the places you frequent in real life, in a game. Can't say I've experienced it!
