Hi there,

It has been a while and I hope you are well and safe. Here's a quick question for you.

If you were to choose a fantasy world from a video-game that you like or find interesting, what game would it be and how do you think you'd do if you were to use the elements there are there. Try to perceive this as a realistic thing as possible.

There would be no re-spawning and only perma-death unless the world you picked actually has such technology or magical powers. What kind of person would you be? What choices would you make to stay alive?

Be creative and share your thoughts. You are also able to interact with others and offer advice for a better survival rate or respectfully criticize their decision. πŸ˜„

Good luck and have fun!

Would you survive the world you would pick?

[YES] I would do anything that stands in my power to survive and live a glorious life
[MAYBE] I would play it safe, because the world I picked is dangerous and in a dangerous situation I would probably die
[NO] Probably I would die quickly if that would be come a real world scenario

Stardew Valley / Pokemon / Animal Crossing.

Star Wars would be my frist choice but is kinda cliche. So I'll go with Mass Effect! Having the chance to travel through galaxys would be my dream, and the races there are really interesting :-)

Oh yeah definitely, the universe is vast and old enough that life could have arisen on other planets and evolved just like we did. As an alien race I'd be fine with being an Asari but they are an exlusively female race, so I'd stay as a human but with some genetic modifications to live longer :P

What's wrong in being a female that acts more masculine as an Asari? You'd be able to be accepted by both male and female partners if that's the case.

That would be Valley for sure. Gorgeous surroundings and just hopping around, literally, makes you happy. That's already the case while sitting in a chair imagine how much fun it will be doing it for real!

Quick question: What would you choose as career path and where would you set yourself in the world?

I always play as a recluse who doesn't go out much. First I focus on inspiration-based skills, max out cooking and painting, earn money doing art, then I quickly do the fitness aspiration for longevity perk, then farm money writing books, then I become a scientist to have access to very useful items, then I start a movie career to get the perk that doesn't let random NPCs bother me and try to become friends, then I just focus on farming age reset potions and other immortality items, after which I explore the rest of the content I missed since the last dive or do lower priority paths, like music, comedy, programming, space exploration etc.

Probably PokΓ©mon or Divinity Original Sin 2.

The first one is a rather peaceful world with lots of mysteries and almost no danger, I'd probably become an explorer rather than a trainer.

As for the second one, it is a world with your normal fantasy adventure, and it has all the risks that conveys, however, there's resurrection magic, and if I manage to follow in the footsteps of its protagonist, I become a god by the end of my adventure and that's a literal god, so that doesn't sound too bad either.

I'd love a world like the Fate series, but I don't see myself staying alive on it for long.

Following the path of a God can be a difficult one, unless you have the skill to keep up.

You'd be able to settle in major cities, and try to live a safe life there.

The fact that is not impossible is more than enough to try it, so long as the possibility exist, I believe there's a way to attain it.

Hahaha, not that Fate, this one. However, I have more confidence in surviving something like Dark Souls than there.

Is mostly mages using spirits of past heroes to:

-Kill one another
-Kill something that threatens humanity as a whole

The problem is that you have no control of the magic you yourself posses and there's no way to improve said magic either, so my chances of being born from a noble family that has a crest (they have been passing down their magic so it accumulates and eventually becomes strong, however, since it comes from an organ, it eventually rots if it's too old as well), or being born with rare magic from non mages (Mystic Eyes or one of the six magics) is realistically zero, and as soon as I'm born my entire potential is already set in stone. So far there's only been few exceptions to that fact, and, it didn't end pretty for them.

On Divinity or Dark Souls however anyone is able to grow almost indefinitely.

So mages get to kill one another because their magic powers become uncontrollable? I've heard a similar story taken from side quests in other RPG's. I believe it was from Dragon's Age, but I might be wrong.

Nah, they kill one another for a price that 'grants wishes' (huge grain of salt here), they don't really lose control of their power, the power becomes strong after passing it from father to son, but, by certain time, it starts to weaken because it becomes too old and it ultimately becomes un-transferable and obsolete.

Sort of? There's a lot of lore involved, but the gist is that certain godlike AI are running orbital terrariums, and you're always "backed up" for quick restore in the event of your untimely demise, a la Borderlands.

Genuinely surprised nobody mentioned Slime Rancher yet; it came to mind instantly for me. I would love to lead a peaceful and quiet life, surrounded by all kinds of slimes. Their unrelenting joy just can't be beat. Whether I could work alongside Bea, or take the reins after her, I can see myself having a genuinely good time. Missing the people I've left behind on Earth would be tough, but really, you could do far worse.

...or, if you insist I work through some serious hardship... Detroit: Become Human. I could see myself becoming an android rights activist, seeing as having an android life partner is a dream of mine.

Slime Rancher sounds like a fun world to be in to an extent. The main dangers can be stopped with a squirt bottle full of water, basically. Might feel a bit isolated, though, even though you can talk to others virtually and via mail.

I feel like the tarrs show up in the world often enough to be a crutch, but not so often that you can lose too much progress. Other than that, if you somehow have an outbreak, that's likely on you (and therefore shouldn't be that demotivating).

Might feel a bit isolated, though, even though you can talk to others virtually and via mail.

I do think of myself as a loner, which is why I don't think it'd be too big of an issue. But who knows, maybe the sequel will introduce an even stronger link back to Earth :)

True, I've heard so many times and I had to revisit the store page to see how it does. Overwhelmingly positive for a game like that it's crazy. I wishlisted it just in case I get my hands on it.

You'll just have to wait a few years and maybe Elon Musk or other company would provide you with one that is as accurate as the game. I would like a friend robot like that.

It's crazy good, is what it is! The only reason I'm not replaying it on Steam yet is that I'm swamped with schoolwork. But after the year's done, I'm totally gonna spend my whole days ranching.
A benchmark for the game's good quality, very personally, might be that I've always been chasing the feeling of a game that's cute and fun but also has you doing stuff like building and crafting, ever since I started thinking back to having played MySims when I was younger (long story short, I would say MySims seems to have been a sort of a shoddy attempt at adapting the feel of Animal Crossing, although I don't suppose the two have many similarities in the end). One would say farming games are the way to go, but even though I haven't had much time to spend on any of those, I don't think I would do particularly well with them either. Thus, Slime Rancher balances the colorful aesthetic and surroundings filled with dozens of many different slimes with the constant drive to explore further, dig deeper, get rich faster (and spend it all on upgrades). So while it's not nearly the same, it's the closest it's gotten for me :)

I would love to be able to stick around long enough to experience androids coexisting with humans! I'm always saddened by the fact that most people, upon hearing "android", tend to default to "robo bad, brain too big, eradication of human race go brrr". We could, quite literally, experience a cultural reset, if only we were willing to do better! In a way (and I hate that I can't seem to come up with a more flattering comparison), living with an android is like raising a child; except it's already grown and can take care of itself when needed. That basically excludes most of, if not all of the annoyances of raising a real child, doesn't it? (Disclaimer: I am not a parent, so I'm up for being corrected on that :) ) All it would take for people would be to imprint android minds with positive thinking, an understanding of the human race, a genuine love for arts and sciences... and we could finally have a shot at truly leaving this world better than we found it.
(Except I feel like 2020 onwards has shown us that this is just my wishful thinking... nevertheless, I'm eager to spread it to whoever is willing to listen.)

True, it's although a double edge sword, I do think we can have a positive outcome from a more logically thinking being that could help keep our emotions in place and not necessarily be our servants, but friends,co-workers and family members in a far-fetched way speaking.

I'm with you on this one. For me technology in the AI and robotics seems fascinating and exciting. I've never thought about the horror that it would bring if you teach the android to act out of respect, kindness and support.

Exactly! Cause if you did, there wouldn't be any horror :) ...except the more I look around, the more racism, sexism, classism and general stupidity I keep on seeing. If there was an easy way to even out the playing field, we could all access an equal quality of life and educate ourselves successfully enough to impart good values upon androids, should they become commonplace in the future. (But then again, since that's nowhere near close to what the world is actually like, games like Detroit: Become Human find their footing. It's already different in that it challenges the narrative I mentioned earlier.)

Hey, up top! It's such a shame to see so many people dismiss it, because "what do you mean there's no action"... like it or not, a lot goes into the production of their games. There's a reason the studio only has five titles to their name, with merely three of them recognized enough to still get brought up in conversation.

First of all, Happy Cake Day!

A reason why I probably liked it is because I am deeply invested in stories for games and even sometimes a game has a sucky gameplay element, if the story is good, it's a good game because it entertained me. A game has to be entertaining for me, no matter how easy or complex it is. Detroid is no far from that and so is The Walking Dead: The Telltale games and a game not many talk about is The Wolf Among Us.

Thank you! I can hardly believe it's been 5 years since I signed up already... that's one way to make me feel old :'D

Yes! It's easy to play a ton of games just to have played them (I've completed over 200 last year alone just by picking a load of small free-to-play titles), but the ones that will really stick with you don't come by often. (I just did some maths, and in the time I've been using my Steam account, I've picked out about 20 games that I thought were worth being called a "favorite", which means I find an average of three new favorite games every year... that's not even a tenth of all my Steam completions! ...though I do have a few other favorites I've yet to rebuy on Steam.)

Detroid is no far from that and so is The Walking Dead: The Telltale games and a game not many talk about is The Wolf Among Us.

Oooh, I love TWD! Season 1 is actually one of my favorites :D Must have been amazed by it back in 2018, it was my first experience with Telltale's games. I'm sad to think that I'm gonna be playing the last game sometime this year, I've been spacing them out as much as possible... oh well, I'd like to rebuy them on the PS eventually.

TWAU is an absolute gem! (and yet another favorite) Replayed it on the Vita just last month and I've been dying to check out the original comics; now feels like the best time, before the sequel finally comes out. I couldn't imagine playing it back in 2013 and having to wait 10 years...;;

The reality is that we don't need many games to make us happy. Before hoarding games, back in 2019, I would only hope to have games and I was spending more time with multiplayer games. I have expanded my taste in games quite a lot and revisited some old-school stuff I never thought I would enjoy as much as I did. I haven't reflected on how many games I've played yearly and which were my favorite, but whatever beaten the count of 50+ hours mark climbed the top ranks for me.

Same, the first one hit different than the rest. I remember not finishing the 2nd one and dropping it shortly after starting it. I now have the The Walking Dead: The Telltale Definitive Series so I hold all of them inside, which should be a good reason to go ahead and try them as they have reached completion I think. I prefer playing games that I know they are finished otherwise I leave them in a cliffhanger all the time and I have a hard time going over and over again.

I've played it back then alongside Walking Dead, I believe after finishing the 1st season. I didn't know it would turn out so good. I knew little about it, but when it was done, I felt that's not the end of it. Months later, I found out that Telltale went bankrupt and shut down. I was for the first time in my gaming career sad for a game series not going.

These last months I found out of the return of Telltale games and I was super happy to see the sequel actually coming up. Really excited to see the company going back on the grind. They deserve to win.

Now that you say that, it goes for all kinds of other media (or things in general) as well. It's fine to enjoy most things uncritically, but if you claim to love everything (or seem to hate everything)... you might as well not have a taste at all. It's always important to reexperience some works, construct your own criticisms (or at least read up on the existing ones) and evaluate how you feel about them.

whatever beaten the count of 50+ hours mark climbed the top ranks for me

Haha, I can't quite say the same for myself. Most games I play are done within a few hours :D (Though apparently I did spend over a hundred hours replaying bits and pieces of Detroit, already?)

Aw, shame you dropped the second one! If anything, I would guess A New Frontier is where most people's criticisms lie (mine included).
I do get the thing with cliffhangers, though... TWD is great, so like I mentioned before, I've been aching to complete it, but otherwise, if a game is just okay, but has multiple installments... I'll be done with one of them and discard the rest to pick up next year, easily.

I knew little about it, but when it was done, I felt that's not the end of it.

Which is even better when you consider that it hardly had a sequel hook! When things have such blatantly obvious sequel hooks, like The Incredibles, it's straight up painful to watch. ...or how your run-of-the-mill anime series will end after 12 episodes, and without even outright saying it, you can tell the creators want you to read the original manga.
Without even having read Fables, I'm glad that both games are being set as prequels, so that anyone can enjoy them without an intimate knowledge of the original comics.

They deserve to win.

They deserve to win, seconded. :D

I was originally going to say Stardew Valley since there's no real "failing" at farming in that game like I would irl, realistically the amount of energy I have would be about half that of the character's normal energy.
Minecraft or Terraria would probably be better choices, since Terraria wouldn't have a food/stamina bar (infinite energy) and Minecraft gives easier access to food since nothing is seasonal. They're both more dangerous by far, Terraria especially since there are no prebuilt villages...I feel like I could manage, though.

...although Scribblenauts also sounds fun, having the ability to create anything. Kind of too god complex-y though.
