How your location affects your gaming experience

As part of my preparation for my recent trip to Southeast Asia, I downloaded a number of text adventures to my smartphone. And I have to admit that sitting in a cabin in the hot & humid jungle on Borneo while playing Babel really heightened the gaming experience. The chilly location descriptions seemed that much more intense when being surrounded by apes and insects (and sweating like a pig). I completed the games some years ago, but that was just on my plain old computer at home, so the experience wasn't quite the same.

Anyone else have similar stories? Anyone playing King Arthur games at Stonehenge or what have you?
