Video Games are obviously not the same as the real world, but if you had the chance to exist inside a game's world exactly as it is within that game, within the timeline the game is set in, which game's world would you pick?

Keep in mind, this means the world you choose to reside in has a definite finite area of size. There are no patches of land outside of the area you can explore. Buildings, objects, anything you can interact with only function as they do within the game itself. If buildings are not enterable for the protagonist of said game, they are not enterable for you.

The only exception to this rule, for the purposes of this question, is that LOD/occlusion culling does not exist. You do not need to be within a certain distance to the player for the world to be visible and other NPCs to be spawned.

Other than that though, the world you choose must exist within your chosen game's setting and narrative.

So, what would your choice be?

Definitely Super Mario 64 or Odyssey. The worlds look so vibrant!!

Edit: just wanted to add it would be cool to get a feather and fly up in the sky. If I was living in a game that would be thrilling.

None, I'm not the kind of gamer that tries to escape reality with immersive set-pieces and RP walking.

I just want to have fun with the game in front of me after an exhausting day.

@Archangel3371: lol

I guess something like Arcanum of Steamworks and Magick Obscura - the reason being that it's a large world that's highly interactive (in terms of both buildings/environment and lots of other living beings) - more so than many games - so it would take me longer to go insane.

@Zuon:

I dunno. It's too hard to pick a world because in videogames, there's always something wrong with it.

- GTA has a huge crime issue.

- Red Dead Redemption has a huge crime issue.

- Monster Hunters has giant monsters.

- Halo has an alien war going on.

- Resident Evil has bio-weapon warfare on a global scale.

- Final Fantasy has monsters that creep into human cities once in a while.

It's like, even if you're somewhat happy in one world - something is bound to kill you.

Monster Hunters has giant monsters.

We have giant monsters in reality as well, they're called political parties.

Difference is we cannot skin them, and make them into cool armor.

This is a tricky one for me. I'm honestly not sure. Most of the games that I enjoy are far too problematic in terms of their setting and overall story. I personally think I'd have a hard time dealing with it.

I think the easiest way to answer this question is to think of a game you never grow tired of, no matter how many times you've played it...and pick that. That way, you'll probably never become bored.

An RPG world where one can become super powerful by defeating low-mid level enemies over and over and acquire all kinds of magic spells, transformations, summons, etc. or a relaxing game world like Animal Crossing.

Ultima 7. First time I played this as a kid I wanted to live in the world of Britannia. The city I'd want live in the world would probably be one of the smaller towns like Trinsic.

It had a solid stone wall around the entire town and could protect its citizens from any wildlife from outside and was also right near the ocean and tucked away in a beautiful little forest just a short distance south of Britain. Other than the brutal murder of the gargoyle farm worker that happens at the start of the game, the town would be a very quiet and peaceful place to live.

Realistically though... I probably would have end up joining the fellowship cult and then getting killed by the Avatar.

Considering the restrictions the OP has laid, I would have to say a Sims game. It's a safe environment where I'm unlikely to get killed, it has modern conveniences so I'll be comfortable, and I'm less likely to go completely insane once I've spent several months there.

Probably World of Warcraft. Azeroth, plus all the other areas added on throughout the years, would be a really cool place to inhabit.

Yeah, it'd be like going on house arrest but with perks.
