I was busy being a despicable little despot in Tropico 6 this weekend when I looked down at seemingly idyllic island paradise and wondered what it would be like to see out my days on its pixellated coast. Sure, there’s a ton of crime and some rebels are trying to sabotage my mines, but there’s infinite sunshine and a bottomless box of Cuban cigars to while away the time.

Of course, my miniature Lenin overseeing this place could prove a bit of a nuisance, but it was enough to get me thinking about which games I would choose to experience in real life.

Once I’d extended this thought to other games, I was quickly reminded just how brutal practically every game in existence is. Would I want to spend a week in Doom’s demon-infested Mars base? I’d rather eat a pinecone whole. How about a nice weekend in Raccoon City? I could go sightseeing to the gun shop and the RCPD, although I’d have to nope out of there once Mr. X comes to give it to me.

We play games to escape and transport us to fantastical worlds though; even the gruesome ones. There’s something about stepping out into the lush green hills of Cyrodiil for the first time, or wondering how much a nice toadstool house would cost in the Mushroom Kingdom. Heck, wanting to be immersed in these worlds is practically the very reason that VR was invented. Thanks to VR, we’re closer to true presence in virtual worlds than ever before.

So say you’ve got a golden ticket with access to experience any game in the world in real life, which would you choose? Would you go on a gung ho rampage in the Himalayas with Far Cry 5? Or would you build the ultimate theme park in Planet Coaster and churn your guts up with corkscrews and milkshakes? Let us know below! I give it about three posts before someone says Dead or Alive Beach Volleyball.

stardew valley. there's excitement to be found in the mines if you're after that sort of thing but for the most part it's just wholesome living with a wealth of attractive, potential spouses. can't go wrong.

Well I looked through every comment to make sure i wasn't just repeating this but... far cry 5 is set in the Rocky Mountains not the Himalayas. Those are in Asia. Anyway always liked the super mario sunshine town to live in.

Otherwise, any space-based game. I'm so jealous of the future (if that future ever happens.)

It really depends. Do you get to pick who are? Do you get a backstory? Were you raised in that world? I would love to been raised in the world of the Witcher, but only if I had the chance to study magic from an early age. I sure as heck wouldn't want to be a poor slightly over weight writer, like I am now. I'd get eaten by a drowner and my poor mum would have to pay a Witcher to avenge me. Sames for Azeroth, I'd want to be a warlock, not a guy with agoraphobia.
