    This is EXTREMELY hard for me for two reasons: 1.) Not having experienced the locales I did not provide and 2.) Not having played many of the games on this list. With that said:

    My pick(s) will go through games I will never play to have an interest in. And so, River City Ransom is at the bottom of that list, so it shall be the next to go.



  • @SabotageTheTruth How dare you kill off something related to Bioshock, sir?! I am appalled! :D



  • @Billy Sometimes you gotta kill Bioshock when you play by the rules. It woulda died anyway. :(



  • @SabotageTheTruth Haha, I think the city of Rapture was the one thing I really enjoyed about Bioshock. Usually I kill off that poor game, but you did it for me for a reason that I wouldn't have. Role reversal!

    @SabotageTheTruth @Billy

    BioShock is the worst...

    I wasn't a big fan of Skyrim locations. But I also hate snow and anything that looks cold.

    While it's a place with lots of cool stuff, it's still in Midgar, which is also listed here, so it's pointless to have both here. Should've been Golden Saucer.



  • @jipostus you could have just got rid of midgar seeing as Wall Market is a specific location that pretty much sums up the slums of midgar... But noooooo you had to kill wall market! I blame you @Brannox for putting midgar!


  • Global Moderator

    feels like all are really good or from games I have little experience with. I wont really kill any of them, just see how this list unfolds

    Removed because of the odd mispelling in "Madain sari." Alternatively could've been trying to spell "Black Mage Village," but I can't be too sure.



  • @CGamor7 But Midgar has plenty of cool locales besides Wall Market. The Church, Shinra HQ... There's lot's of different things going in there, and I think specifying just one part of it all wouldn't do it justice.



  • @jipostus you have made an enemy my friend. This is war...

    I'm just bitter you took my only location lol. All good. I still blame Brannox though. He could have picked the church haha.



  • @CGamor7 Well, I have no locales on this list, so... And you did kill Forgotten Vale, which I would have rooted for, though I knew it wouldn't survive long regardless, knowing that many people in this forum dislike Skyrim. Also, Solstheim and Blackreach are much better location in that game, if you ask me.

    I really don't like Psychonauts' visual style, and this location goes even further by looking insane with all those colours. Headache material.

    For no other reason than that it is from Skyward Sword, a game that shares space with Final Fantasy X in my mind as "that game that ruined an entire franchise".



  • @CGamor7 ;-)

    But seriously, I love the Wall Market. But to exclude Sector 7, Shinra HQ, and/or the church was just too much for me.

    Once again, I'm killing solely based off of games I don't want any part of at all. Despite it's quality, this means Bloodborne. And if it's still around by the time I see I'm eligible again, you can guess what's next...

    They haven't updated this city since like Cataclysm when they added a little Worgen section. The buildings still look like they're from an MMO in 2005. I love the whole nature magic aesthetic that's been copied for Night Elves, but Blizzard doesn't deserve to be rewarded for stagnation in a giant MMO they're still bleeding fans dry with a monthly subscription free for.

    Moreover, all they've done to Teldrassil as a whole since vanilla was the Cataclysm quests and to leave Rut'theran Village looking unfinished like the Night Elves cut the roots of their world tree home. Suffice it to say that the original drudic race hacking at a sacred tree like slashers is way, way lore-breaking.

    Teldrassil still looks like this (a giant unfinished stump):

    when it's supposed to look like this! (But Blizzard haven't changed it despite adding flying to Kalimdor and gaining the technological capacity and more than enough resources to do so since 2005 because their Warcraft teams suuuuuuuck!):

    Quit WoW, don't waste your time on Xenoblade games because they're the same shit, thank you for your time.
