I would live in the world of Final Fantasy VII. Have fun at Gold Saucer, kill some bad guys with a wicked sword, and hook up with Tifa. Oh, and hopefully join Cloud's gang to save the planet.

WoW would be cool too.

I'd have to say FF7 as well. Remember there is that house for sale in, I believe it's called Costa del Sol or something? Living in Nibelheim, Rocket Town, or Wutai wouldn't be to bad either. Maybe go out with Aeris before she croaks. :p

Snowboarding at Icicle Inn, checking out the slums in Midgar, look at the insane Mako reactors. Oh yeah, got to get with Aeris before she dies.

The FF7 world seems cool, but I haven't seen Advent Children yet, so I think I'll reserve judgment on that one until I know more!

Spira would be cool just because the blitzball arena is pretty much the coolest thing ever.

Game Designers' Workshop's Traveller: 2300, later renamed to 2300 AD. Came out in 1986 as a follow-on to their RPG Twilight: 2000. A paper-based RPG in the vein of Dungeons and Dragons, 2300 depicted an interstellar human civilization where the nations of Earth spread out among the stars and forrmed colonies, 300 years from now. France was the big dog (for reasons relating to their role post-World War III), but other nations such as America, Japan, Russia, and Manchuria were prominent.

I did some writing for GDW... got three articles published in their monthly Challenge magazine, another article in The Travellers' Digest, and I contributed to their Earth/Cybertech Sourcebook (I wrote the chapter on Australia, circa 2300). We were negotiating for me to author a complete game module (96 pages) when their plans for 2300 changed.

not really an RPG world but Halo still fascinates me. just the way you could just step out your house and look up to see different countries or islands whatever. I'd love that.

but for RPG I'd say Golden Sun's big world. I'd live in Knox and go on holiday to Lemuria :)

Oh, and my answer would be in Fading Suns, as knight-protector of my liege lord, the Emperor, scion of House Hawkwood. Between daring duels and plasma pistol fights against privateers, I would woo the deliciously beautiful and mysterious Hazat ambassador while watching for the next Decados spy in our ranks.

Final Fantasy X..........I beleve this game took RPG's to a whole new level , with excellent character development, plot twist , superb voice acting and incredible grapphics(for it's time). Damn thing took me 3 months to beat.
