Historical for me. I had a blast playing Empire Earth and making my way from the bronze age all the way up to modern days and even futuristic.

Voted outer space but really, what I mean is sci-fi settings.

You should change that poll option TC. :P

Slim pickins my dude, could add a lot to the poll. Fantasy itself can break down into many categories. Dark Fantasy, High Fantasy, Folklore, etc. You have stuff like Steampunk, Western, Feudal Japan, historically accurate Mushroom Kingdom.

All good tho as I wouldn't be able to choose lol. Depends on the game, what I'm in the mood for, etc.

Guess by outer space you mean sci-fi?

In recent years, definitely appreciate Froms take on dark fantasy. In all their games really, but I'll beat our resident fanatic to it and say Bloodborne especially.

Really dig the sci fi vibes in games like Metroid Prime 1 n 2, and Death Stranding.

The jungle setting is really dope in MGS3.

Mansion in RE, Police station in RE2.

The Zone

Hollownest.

Noticing a theme of isolation here.

@mesome713: Yes. It has very realistic properties such as oil and fire, and physics. The setting is also inspired by real life historical towns, and the world includes realistic elements we see every day such as trees and rocks and doors.

@SolidGame_basic: Yes, aliens and the moon.

Yea, if it tries to be true to the setting. If it's like Aliens invade small town Iowa of 1950s then I consider that Fantasy lol.

I love things like Age of Empires and even Quasihistorical

Something like Mount and Blade technically has a fantasy setting, but there are no fantasy elements in there. No magic, no fictional creatures.

Poll options are limited. I'd go with either sci-fi (not outer space) or historical (not fantasy).

I picked fantasy, but I like them all. One thing I don't like about certain settings is snow. I've never been fond of the cold, and as I've aged, I dislike it even more. Maybe if it was like The Thing or something, I might endure.

Snow/ice/tundra.

Big cities.

These could fall under almost all those categories depending on the game, but I guess it is realistic.
