If you could live in one Game Universe, Which would it be?



  • Final Fantasy VII

    Main House in Kalm and a holiday home in Costa Del Sol



  • The Pokémon Universe because not only would it be cool it is also as close to a utopian society as you can get in video games.

    You get to compete with people in various things (battling, talent/fashion shows, sporting events and more!) with cool as crap monsters that a happy to do it and earn money in the process. Money for having fun and travelling the world. What's better than that?

    The tech of Pokémon is also really advanced (they can put monsters in tiny balls and store them in the cloud on computers!) but they've seemed to have made a concerted effort to stick with each region's traditions. Theres loads of temples and history to uncover that is relatively untouched by people.

    Then there are the people who are all super friendly for the most part. Even the bad guys have nobel ambitions they're just going about in the wrong way. (Apart from Team Rocket, those guys are just dicks...) Thankfully they always get stopped in the end because that's how the Pokémon Universe is.

    The place is so awesome and carefree that 10 year olds can go travelling on their own with nothing but a backpack.



  • Maybe Elder scrolls or Xenoblade chronicles. But even then I wouldn't be able to play video games that I love.



  • I would probably go for the Star Trek universe in the era of Voyager but this feels like cheating because this is more a TV universe than a game universe.

    Otherwise, I would probably go with Final Fantasy VII or VIII universe because of their unique combination of old with new (in terms of technology). I would however be afraid of the somewhat dystopian life one will probably experience in both of those worlds.



  • Though I'm pretty torn (so many great worlds), I would have to choose Skyrim. It's chilly year-round, every house feels cozy, and there's something about the careers in a world like that just feels right. I've spent the past decade working in local television news and the product I create is somewhat intangible, a broadcast that airs once and then fades away. The idea of being a blacksmith and hammering out some armor for someone that they take with them... It's very appealing.



  • Depends if I'm an MC or NPC:

    MC: Mass Effect. Traveling the galaxy, meeting aliens, kicking ass with biotics+techs... It would suck as an NPC though since you'd probably end up as a husk or goo to make another Reaper.

    NPC: Pokemon gym leader. @thenerdtheword Covers most of my sentiments. It's such a jolly place to be and being a gym leader would mean I'd be helping out adventurers and have a pretty high standing in the local community :smile:



  • Super Mario Sunshine, just chillin' on the beach all day long..



  • I guess for me the question is whether you get any of the powers associated with player characters from the chosen game. Final Fantasy has my one of my favorite magic and ability systems, particularly X (divisive, I know, but I was a big fan of the sphere grid), and living in a post-Great Calm Spira could be a lot of fun. I could also be sarcastic here and answer with Watchdogs, which is set in Chicago (which is where I live). If I don't get any special powers, though, I'd probably have to go with Pokemon as well.



  • It's gotta be Scribblenauts! All you need is the book, and you'll pretty much be set for life.

  • I think it would be pretty cool to live in a post calm Spira. Being able to live an easy life most of the time.. Not to mention, being able to attend a real Blitzball game seems like it would be amazing!



  • That's a tough one, but I've gotta go with Ni No Kuni. Sure, times were a little dangerous during the game, but after and before that world would have been absolutely magical. Heck I'd live in fear of the Dark Djinn if it meant getting my hands on a Babana Split or running around the Fairyground.

    How much are you willing to bet the "curse of Mana" will strike again in Ni No kuni 2? :p Ding Dong Dell is a really jolly place though. ^^



  • @Michster I'd put like 10 bucks on it.


  • Global Moderator

    Super Mario Galaxy - it'd be so jolly jumping around planets.



  • I am a huge Disney Fan, so it has to be Kingdom Hearts. Having a keyblade would be awesome!



  • Pokemon would be a really close second though

    Well then you should live in Chinese Scribblenauts where Copyright doesn't mean a thing. lol



  • Pokemon, for sure. It would be so exciting to go out and just travel the world. To have your own team of pokemon that you form a special bond with would just be amazing.

    The Witcher universe of course! I'd love to have everyone and everything try to dismember, curse, kill me.

    However, on a more positive note. I'd enjoy all that extra time making decisions. Plus, everyone plays Gwent.



  • Star Trek. If you don't know why, I don't know what to tell you.
