Through several generations of development and evolution, online games have penetrated into every corner of people’s lives and formed a new kind of consumption culture, thus they are likely to be not only required, but essential for the folk’s daily life and broaden the horizon and knowledge of the players at the same time. Architecture scene in the online games is an important occasion and environment for the activities and performance of the game characters. Architecture scene includes time, location, and space, and it helps to show the historical background and the geographical environment from multiple perspectives. More importantly, it helps to show the relative architecture culture style and the architecture characteristics of the times. In online games’ virtual world, exquisite architecture scene can not only set off the competition atmosphere, bring the players into the games’ plot quickly, but also make the cultural connotation and the cultural emotion that the makers want to convey in the games sensed visually by the players. Online games should be treated rationally, because it is not only a media of entertainment but also a media of cultural transmission. With the emergence and popularity of many online games based on Chinese stories, we should pay more attention to the function of transmission of the online games.
