San Quentin State Prison (SQ) is a California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation state prison for men, located north of San Francisco in the unincorporated town of San Quentin in Marin County. Opened in July 1852, San Quentin is the oldest prison in California. The state's only death row for male inmates, the largest in the United States, is located at the prison. It has a gas chamber, but since 1996, executions at the prison have been carried out by lethal injection, though the prison has not performed an execution since 2006. The prison has been featured on film, video, and television; is the subject of many books; has hosted concerts; and has housed many notorious inmates.

San Quentin is often mentioned and occasionally appears in Cause of Death. San Quentin is mentioned various times in L.A. Noire; the threat of a gas chamber is also referenced by the main characters during interrogations. San Quentin Avenue is a street in Bohan, a borough in Grand Theft Auto IV. Bohan is similar in size and demographically to the Bronx, just as the whole map of Liberty City is similar to New York City. Many other streets in Bohan are also named for real-life prisons. San Quentin is mentioned by Doc Brown in [Back to the Future: The Game]. After he and Marty reunite in 1931's Hill Valley, the game will provide a prompt for Marty to ask Doc about Biff Tannen's father, Irving “Kid” Tannen. Doc says that Kid was sent to San Quentin in 1937 for a life sentence. He escaped for “a busy three hours” according to Marty, as Biff was born in 1938.
