Favorite Video Game Worlds

I’m a gamer for many reasons, but I have always liked becoming immersed in the story. Reading is great, but I don’t visually get to see the characters or the setting. A great video game to me makes me feel like I’m a part of that environment or I start to feel for the character I’m playing. This topic randomly popped in my head while I was eating my eggs this morning, I wanted to recall my favorite video game worlds I played through.

Rapture

Rapture is the fictional underwater city in Bioshock. Rapture is a 1940’s themed underground city created and constructed by Andrew Ryan. Bioshock is one of my all time favorite video games because of how brilliantly Rapture is set up. Of course I wouldn’t want to live there because there isn’t any food plus drug infested people trying to kill you in the game, but the idea seemed great at the time. Setting up an underwater city where people could go in case things get bad above the water. I love the beauty in it even though I can still see the darkness.

Animal Crossing New Leaf

How could you not want to live here? Living in a cute town of your creation with animal neighbors and constructing lighthouses. Animal Crossing New Leaf is my guilty pleasure, cutesy video game. When I first got my 3DS in college, this was the only game I played for about 5 months.

Bioshock Infinite wasn’t too bad considering it didn’t take place in Rapture. Can you tell I love the Bioshock series a little too much? Colombia was the fictional universe in the sky and you could travel around by zip lines. That would actually be kinda cool yet freaky because I hate heights. It’s a beautiful environment with different influences from the United State’s founding fathers.

Boyfriends Choice: Assassin’s Creed

I asked the boyfriend what video game world he would want to live in, he chose the world of Assassin’s Creed due to it’s expansive setting. I have to admit this would be a pretty cool place to explore.

  1. One of these days I need to find time to play Bioshock, as what I hear of the story really fascinates me, so I can see why it is on your list. As for my favourite videogame worlds, that is an interesting question. Quite a lot of my favourite video games are strategy with procedurally generated worlds so they are more or less no help at all. I enjoy the world of Tamriel, in Skyrim though I only know the game Skyrim as I have not played any other elder scrolls game. I like the lore and the politics of that world, and the fact that orcs and dark elves are not automatically evil by virtue of race, whereas the Dwarves (now extinct) were actually quite cruel and the high elves still are quite cruel.

  2. As an Assassin’s Creed fan myself I also love the worlds they recreate, especially renaissance Italy. But for me, the Elder Scrolls series all the way! Oblivion and Skyrim worlds are absolutely stunning. Great article gal! – Hannah, The London Geek

  3. A big Bioshock fan! I haven’t played through any of those games but they’re all on my list.

    As far as my favorite video game world? Azeroth and Tamriel are the first two that come to mind. Does Middle Earth count? Because then definitely Middle Earth.

    Thanks for the great read!
