What game world would you live in, if you had to be in one?
« on: August 03, 2006, 08:18:19 am »
If you had to live in a video game world, where would you live?



Assuming that you can deal with the world's physics, atmosphere, are able to ingest its food, etc. and be about as skilled and equipped closely to how the main characters in those game worlds do so as not to be killed off in the first few minutes that you are there.



(Now, right off the bat I'm going to exclude the DOA Extreme games, the Sexy Beach games, the Artificial Girl games, or any game like those.



Also excluded are games without worlds, like Brain Age, Big Brain Academy, or any other quiz/trivia/brain games.  I guess that would also exclude Tetris and the like.



Games that include Earth aren't particularly interesting for the sake of conversation, unless that version of Earth is radically different enough (a normal sports game would be boring, but most superhero games less so).)



I will mention my choice of world later...(I'm at work!)

Motavia circa Phantasy Star II.  I just think it would be a cool place to at least visit.

Definitely the classic Mega Man's Earth in a reality where the future *doesn't* to the future seen in Mega Man X and later in Mega Man Zero. The place is full of colorful robots and aside from the occasional attack by Wily (which never seems to end up with any human casualties anyway), it wouldn't be so bad. Besides, I love that Tango, the robot kitty from Mega Man V for the Game Boy (see that JonLeung? I wrote correctly you big grammar bully :P)

Those Final Fantasy worlds are pretty cool. Though I'm not sure about wondering the woods and bam - random battle time.

I haven't played a FF game since FFVII so I have no idea the name of the world or whatever. But you know what I mean.



Living with Spongebob might be cool, too. . .

TerraEsperZ took my top choice at the time of my writing of the first post...  the world of Mega Man (classic) is cool, you can tell from my Roomba topic that I like robots.



And I was also thinking that Mega Man X, Mega Man Zero, and now Mega Man ZX, each approximately a hundred years after each other, just get all apocalyptic and strange and weird.  Mega Man's world is cute and cool and a neat place to live in before all that.



And I'm not a grammar bully.  Though I notice a lack of use of proper punctuation...heh.

Just teasing you, since the last time you mentionned the 'Game boy' as two words thing you seemed quite... 'passionate' would be a polite word :)

And I see a spelling error and a capitalization error in your last post.  ;)



I wonder if the Mega Man comic books by Dreamwave were any good?  I remember seeing one page and thinking that it was neat.

Hey, I'm a native French speaker. Go ahead and write a post in French so that I can ridicule you too :P

Not bad. A bit too formal, but grammatically correct. Well done old chap!



Also, thanks for reviving this thread. I have a few more worlds I wouldn't mind living in...



For one, I'd love to live in the world of Kyrandia, either on the island proper or anywhere else for that matter. To be able to learn magic, visit all sorts of bizarre places and meet all kinds of people... Oh sure, there's Malcolm the supposedly insane/evil jester, but the third game cleared his name, and he's a funny guy if you know how to handle him.



I'd also love to live in the Caribbeans from the Monkey Island series. I have no particular island in mind as my place of residence, but I wouldn't stand still anyway. I'd try to pull a Guybrush by attempting to become a pirate and practice insult swordfighting. Even better, I'd try to keep Murray as my (reluctant) traveling companion, which would work wonders to scare off potential enemies.
