Which video game world/universe interests you the most? For me, I'd go with one of the three: Spira post Eternal Calm, the Fallout universe, or Horizon Zero Dawn. For Spira, I'd want to be a history seeker. Wanting know what things used to be pre-Sin. The Fallout universe I chose because I'd like to see how each section of the USA was affected by the Great War. The HZD universe might seem strange due to the constant threat of the machines, but in actuality the machines rarely attack cities and most know how to fight them. Plus, I'd once again like to see how the world was changed during the war. Frozen Wilds is said to introduce new machine animals, which suggests the ones we see during Aloy's quests for self history are not the only ones created

Is it cheating if I say Metal Gear?

Anyway, for a setting that's obviously not our world, Final Fantasy.

If I'm not an idiot, I can learn martial arts/magic and have a reasonable expectation of survival.

I also have the opportunity to bang a lot of interesting stuff.

We talking the original metal gear game or the universe the franchise exists in?

Elder Scrolls
Monster Hunter (rarely does anyone actually get killed by a dragon)
Pokemon
Street Fighter (friends beat each other up for fun, no permanent injuries)
The Legend of Zelda (reincarnation)
The Witcher
Wing Commander (Giant Cats)

I could go on for a while, though. Not sure what i'd ultimately pick. Some have some pretty cool rewards, but really high risks, too (like elder scrolls).

I believe we were talking about the setting of the game overall.

I would not want to be anywhere near Outer Heaven.

I was gonna say the Witcher, but a lot of people are piss poor and often get attacked by monsters

The moment i choose to live in an alternative universe, i must be half-suicidal anyway. I'm going straight to being a witcher, myself.

Which one? Some of them are straight up doomed, like FF6. Mathematically, they're all doomed. IIRC, 9 doesn't end on a good note, and neither tactics. One is absolutely screwed.

Probably Ivalice. Living in a city looks pretty dope, even if you're poor.

Eh. They have long histories. Chances are that I'm not going to be around to see the big bad evil shit.

Fair enough, but the universe falls apart when all the kids die of old age, no?

Actually, alot of them cycle, so not really.

Curious that this is your reasoning for not wanting to live there, yet you picked Fallout where everyone has basically nothing, you're under constant threat of bandit/raiders, radiation, mutants, ghouls, synths, oppressive regimes, ugly landscapes (the most threatening of all things), etc, etc, etc.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Probably the child in me but my pick would be Pokemon. There's a certain appeal to being able to drop everything and just become a Pokemon Trainer. I mean sure there's some dark stuff in that universe, and you have to deal with legendary pokemon trying to start the apocalypse every few years, but I'm sure some 10 year old kid can sort that out why I just have fun.

Mass Effect. Get me an asari, some red sand and a spaceship, and we're space truckin'.

It's always the same 10 year old kid, and he never gets any respect. It's like when the guards insult the dragonborn's skills, or someone requests you pick up potatos for them, or asks if you think you can handle a few spells.

I chose the Fallout universe over the Witcher because most people in Fallout have a weapon on them at all times and can defend themselves. Plus, if you live in a community you have others to help you fight off said raiders. Also, synths are mostly in the Commonwealth. In the Witcher universe, it's only a Witcher who can fight off the monsters and that costs you money that you can barely accumulate

Probably the Legend of Heroes games. I still need to play the skies series but they’re all on Steam and I can’t download them on my current PC. ;_;

I agree with Pokemon. At least my child self would.

Why can't you?

  • Pokemon - Sort-of semi-future where you can befriend your own powerful Pokemon, go on adventures, and do whatever you want?! Who wouldn't want that?! Also, Pokemon is socialism incarnate. Their healthcare system is extraordinary.
  • Paper Mario - first one, not second, obviously.
  • Zelda - not sure which one... if TP was saved and I lived in a nice village like Kakariko, that would be awesome! Otherwise, HELL NO, I'd rather live in Wind Waker or Skyward Sword.

    I'm sure there are others I'd like to live in, but these are some big ones.

    Pokemon would be amazing! I started daydreaming about living in a world like that all the way back in 3rd grade--it was a constant play pattern for my friends and me to imagine ourselves there. It's also kinda nice that you can basically become a Pokemon Trainer no matter what, as opposed to you having to win the genetic lottery to even have the potential to do the sweet thing that some people can do in that universe.

    So, community consensus is that we want to be bros with Mewtwo?

    This is actually a good point... a lot of games have you as "the hero," then populate the world with NPCs who are definitely NOT "the hero." But in a theoretical Pokemon universe anyone can be "the hero," and anyone can be good/bad at it, but everyone's trying to improve. It's collective positivism, and it's infectious!
