30 Day Video Game Challenge – Day 19: World You Want to Live In

From world’s with lush farmlands and distant horizons, to desolate worlds with the remnants of forgotten societies, there’s always worlds between the plastic covers of our video games that we’d love to visit, and just as many that we’d love to live in! Below you’ll find our writers’ choices on which in-game worlds they’d love to live in. 


This game isn’t out yet but I think that I’d like to live during the time of Edward Kenway, the protagonist of Assassin’s Creed 4. Sailing around the Caribbean is a nice setting but sailing around the Caribbean as a pirate and/or assassin sounds so much better.



Final Fantasy 13’s Academia just seems to look very appealing to me. I mean if you look at the city as a whole, could you imagine the amount of technology that could be experienced here? It just looks truly amazing.



Virmire, the most beautiful planet I think I’ve ever seen. Just ignore the genophage drama and blowing up things and teammate deaths. Seriously pretty planet though. 



I’d love to have a while in the city of San Vanelona from Skate 1 and 2. Despite being filled with skaters and some truly daft drivers, San Van is full of iconic locations. In addition to that, if I was ever in need of some entertainment, I could always go sit in a non-playable zone and watch the skaters fly, fall and crash in harmony. 



Rage Wasteland. What can I say? Some people fantasise about the zombie apocalypse. I for one am more the post-apocalyptic dreamer.


So what about our readers’ place of residence? Would you like to have a home in the remnants of Washington DC from Fallout 3? Does the Aperture Science Centre seem like the perfect place to raise a family? Or do you go to Ravenholm? Let us know in the comments!

Now moved on, Bracken is an aspiring tech and gaming journalist. Is anyone even reading this?

    I think a cool place to have lived would be Balamb Garden in FFVIII. Yes i know they used to train soldiers, but the place seemed kinda neat with everyone knowing everyone. Oh, and they used to play that cool card game.

      Balamb Garden would be pretty cool, especially if I got to wield a Gunblade 😀

    I used to play Freelancer for hours and hours and hours on end, because I simply wanted to exist and get lost in that world, the Sirius Sector, where I could be anything or anyone I wanted to be, and all I really needed was a ship and my imagination.

    Failing that, Skyrim. Obviously. 😛

      Skyrim would be epic. I’d totally want to join one of the guilds.

      Until you get married in Skyrim, at which point you become a guard.

    This is a really really tough one for me because there are so many worlds that stand out and make you want to be a part of them. If the world we lived in, allowed us to obtain skills and powers of the people living in that world, I would so live in Diablo 3’s setting, especially in New Tristram. The large variety of enviroments would make amazing travel destinations, and come on, who doesn’t secretly want to be a witch doctor in a world like that anyway?
